Moonlight in Vermont

For my donation this year to the 2017 SAQA Benefit Auction, I wanted to try doing a series and expand on the theme of moonlight.  I call this little art quilt, Moonlight in Vermont.  It's 12" x 12" per the required size for submission.  I made it for two reasons; (1) I was born in Vermont and (2) It's the title of one of my favorite songs.  I used the same background fabric as in my previous quilt.  I used silver tissue lamé for the moon again and silver metallic thread for the quilting design and for highlighting the mountain tops.   This time, however,  I used a silver permanent marker to add more highlights to show the moon's shadow on the mountains.  (It sold for $100)
