Foundation piecing and two different types of blocks create this stunning New Moon Quilt, an advanced quilt project.
About New Moon
New Moon features a mariner’s compass block alternated with a traditional pineapple block. Set side-by-side and with carefully shaded fabrics, the blocks create a soft glow.
Both the pineapple log cabin blocks and the compass blocks are foundation pieced for accuracy in piecing. We’ve rated the quilt as requiring advanced skills, but if you are comfortable foundation piecing and setting in seams, the quilt will pose your no difficulties.

Take care when printing the patterns — you must print them at 100% (no scaling) so that templates are printed the correct size. Printers have different degrees of accuracy so be sure to use the Template Size Check in the patterns to ensure that your printer is reproducing the pattern accurately.
