As you can see this design is an applique. It allows you to place the moon and stars where ever you want them to be on your quilt.
It’s great for whole cloth quilts that need that little something.
They're also wonderful for other quilts that might have some blank places. Don't forget that these designs can go on just about anything.
There are several ways to use an applique pattern. You can use the freezer paper method, spray adhesives technique, and we've even heard of using school glue.
Our favorite way to applique though is using Heat n Bond. It’s less mess, cost effective, easy, and fast.
Use the ultra-hold when you’re going to leave the design as a raw edge applique that will not be washed or stitched down, which is perfect for wall-hangings.
Lite hold is perfect for when you're making a functioning quilt that will be used. This particular hold strength will keep your applique in place while you stitch around it with a tight zigzag. This is called a satin stitch.
Whichever method you choose, pick the right one for you. It should be a technique that makes you feel comfortable and confident with what you are doing.
After you have decided which method of using this design, it’s time to decide where on your quilt they will be.
Is the moon and stars going to be the main focal point of the quilt?
Or are they going to alternate along the outer boarders?
A different shape can be used for different quilting blocks.
There is also the possibility of having internal fabric strips separating other blocks. In which case using the moon and stars down the length of this blank fabric could create an excellent break from the monotony.
These are just a few ideas to get your imagination flowing.
Whatever you decide will be one of a kind, original, and look fantastic on your finished quilt. J
This moon and stars quilting pattern has endless possibilities. Let the inspiration guide you and your next work of art will be grand.
Until next time.
