Paris in the Moonglow, art quilt

My entry into the Swarovski Create Your Style art quilt competition, 2013. This piece finished top 10 and was displayed at the International Quilt Festival in Houston.

The theme of the competition was “music”, and my piece was inspired by the song Moonglow by Benny Goodman. I imagined some Parisian street musicians quietly playing under the moonlit sky, with stardust and sparkles swirling around them as they created magic on their instruments.
I incorporated Swarovski crystals, sequins, beads, stitching, hand-dyed fabrics, and paint to create my piece.
