Guild Challenge Quilt

After a great start yesterday, a good night's sleep and a find in a second hand store I was energized this afternoon.
Remember that all of this is still BACKGROUND.

Some of the cutoffs from the "moon" were placed at the top edge, along with some silver material, where these areas are receiving the max moonlight.

I've also stuck in some thin angelina, clear netting and loose silver threads. There is a ravine cutting diag across. This is marked by the dark grey.

After sampling a few different methods of piecing the background including tearing the fabric, I went with crazy quilt blocks. More of the moon scraps were incorporated as well. More trees, more thread, and a big wad of angelina give the moonlight heft.
