|Orbital Flow...thank you for the suggestion, Laura!|
Finally! Yay!! My quilt is finished. All I need now is a name for it. I tend to be a bit name-challenged, so if you've got any really good suggestions, please feel free to let me know :-)
In order to solve the problem of flat, motionless (and disappearing) quilting stitches, I added a spiral to each using some variegated yellow to orange floss. That really makes the moons pop, which is much more evident in real life than in my photos. Not only the color helped, but having the quilting stitches closer together pushed the moons forward too.
The edges were trimmed even, and I stitched around the entire piece with 2 strands of embroidery floss, using my usual blanket stitch.
And here is the finished piece again. The dimensions are 20.5 inches by 16 inches.
