$5 in February 2023: the Moonwake Pattern
This month’s new $5 pattern is a throwback to the Smoke & Rust collection. February’s featured pattern is “Moonwake” – inspired by a word that describes the way the moon’s reflection seems to follow you as you walk along water. The blocks are pretty simple to make and are set on point for a cool geometric diamond design.
Moonwake in Country Rose Fabric
In designing this quilt, I leaned into the masculine feel of Smoke & Rust fabric for inspiration – but by no means is this strictly a masculine design. In fact, it’s quite versatile and can fit a modern or traditional vibe depending on the fabric you use. I did a quick little mockup using the charcoals/taupes/pinks/greens of Country Rose fabric currently in shops. “Moonwake” is fat quarter friendly – and if you look closely, you can see each print represented in two different spots throughout the quilt.
What fabric do you think would look good in the Moonwake quilt? Let me know in the comments!
