July 7 is a full moon day, so here is my block for this day.
Our view of Mt. Diablo
is from the east. Most pictures show the west side of the mountain. The lower peak is on the right for us.
If you want to make a Moon over Mt. Diablo 4-inch paper pieced block, click on the little diagram below and it will take you to a full size foundation to print out.
I used a quarter to make my moon for appliquéing. Wet some fabric and wrap it around the coin, twist it tightly and secure it with a rubber band. It looks sort of like a large Hershey Kiss. Let it dry completely. Remove the rubber band and cut off the fabric tail. Give it a steam to flatten it a bit and appliqué it in place.
