The theme and fabrics

The theme is a magical midnight dream with the moon, stars, birds, butterflies, flowers, leaves and 2 surprise creatures.


Background fabric

Our quilt is going to have a plain black background, you could also use a navy or dark blue or use a light background and turn the moon into a sun. Each background can even be a different colour for a scrappy look.
