Journal Quilt — Worm Moon

I found about the Worm Moon on one of my favorite blogs — that of Elspeth Thompson.  It is the Full Moon associated with the stirring of the soil and this year occurred on March 11.  While it continues to be in the 30’s in the morning here (in fact, there was frost in the Upper Field when Jack and I walked at 8:00), the earth is definitely warming up!

This lace came from my mother’s collection, gathered back when she was designing and creating one-of-a-kind wedding gowns that incorporated antique textiles.  I have left the hooks on.

The lower section is covered with tulle to hold all the little chips of fabric in place during quilting.  All the lines and swirls are meant to depict the busy work of microbes and worms, all happening out of sight and below the surface.

This journal quilt will get some more hand-quilting and will be bound.  Of course, that takes it into several weeks beyond “its” week, but so be it!
