** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block ** 

 First crease your Color 2  12" square in both directions to find the exact center. Then using a compass, or method of your choosing, draw an 8-1/2" circle on your Color 2 fabric. Cut this out...

You will also need an 8-1/2" circle of lightweight interfacing, not shown here in it's cutting process!

Sew the interfacing circle to the right side of the Moon all the way around, using a 1/4" seam allowance. With sharp scissors, slit the interfacing (only) to make a hole large enough to turn the Moon unit right sides out. Press well...

Now crease the Color 1  12-1/2" square in both directions lightly to find the center. Center your Moon unit over the square center and pin in place. Hand or invisible machine appliqué the moon to the background square using thread to match the Moon...

Next pin on, then hand or invisible machine appliqué the mountain to the background square, over the moon, turning under 1/4" edges on the "Mountain sides", and using thread to match the Mountain...and it's done!   ...on to Page 2!
