Grab your imagination.....

because your gonna need it for a little while to see where this quilt is going. Imagine puffy clouds and a beautiful garden with the sun peeking through, grapes hanging over the edge of the mountain wall, waves breaking against the rocks. Okay, now you can look at the first quilt block and know where it is going.

Shaylee, fairy of the fields, tends the castle gardens, keeping the smell of roses and sweet lilac's awake for the next trip into someone's imagination. Below the castle's rocky pedestal, waves gently break against the mountain....

Next block we will move across the bridge to the dark side of the mountain and into the forrest where Tiania, Queen of Fairies, and Latanya spend their time singing and dancing for Mr. Moon, keeping him happy and calm is a hard job. He controls the skies and oceans that surround the castle. Any unhappiness can cause bolts of lightning from the sky and thrashing waves against the castles walls turning a dream of princesses into a nightmare!
The art form....................the block

I've lightened this one up a little

(The rules call for using a piece of each thing in "The bag"=I've used 10 of the 21 fabric's in the first block)

Love it. Wow, your partner will be so pleased. Allie in stitches is making a quilt very similar to this. I finally talked to mine yesterday, she said she has let her daughter pick the fabrics and they are brights and she likes modern quilts or traditional with a twist. And I know she loves spiders. That's all I have to go on, other then the quilts on her blog. She hasn't mailed her fabric yet and I haven't seen a pic either so, I guess I'll just have to wait and see. I'm going to take a nap, maybe it will come to me in a dream.
