Wishes. I thought about many things I would like to see come true: world peace, the end of hunger, poverty, hate, and crime in the world. Acceptance of all cultures, races and beliefs. But none of those things will probably happen in my lifetime and the images I thought about to depict any of them seemed cliché.
I began a small quilt with the intention of illustrating different ways to make a wish: wishing well, wish bone, genie lamp, birthday cake, etc. and I did not like the result. It did not work in several places so I put it aside.
So, I decided to do something fun and uplifting. My wish is that all people have many beautiful and magical moments in their lives. The result is this quilt: Magic in the Moonlight.
This is the first time I put silk flowers and leaves in a quilt. The flowers are attached with beads. There are also beads scattered in the water. The fairies were cut out and fused using fusible web and the fairy dust is glitter.
