This wonderful red fabric has faithful images of Luna Moths. The coordinating honey bee fabric is nice too. I was not inspired by the centre pieced snowball section of the top when I first put it together, but when I put the acidic green fabric around for the first border, then I loved the quilt. What a difference colour juxtaposition makes, and what a lesson in the use of complimentary colours in values of dark and light.

|Detail of the half-square triangle border. These triangle squares are a result of the making of the snowball blocks. I realized this happy byproduct when I was making the previous snowball quilt, Firelight.|
|Only a very few scraps remain from the making of this quilt. Most of the scraps went into the backing, which I will show when I post pictures of the completed quilt.|
