Mr. Moonlight

"Mr. Moonlight," 8" x 8" x .75", made by Pam Geisel, Mar. 2014

"Mr. Moonlight" started life as a gorgeous silk necktie. You might be surprised with the amount of fabric there is in a necktie once you take it apart. I did have to piece some of it back together to get enough to wrap around the 8" wood frame.


Technically it is not quilted but the three layers are held together with a few hundred hand-beaded black seed and bugle beads, with an aura left around the moon that is left unbeaded.
