Magical is a vertical and horizontal mirror image of a sunrise landscape. The background fabric was painted and the outer circle was overpainted with inks. The mirror image trees have silk snippet leaves that were attached with seed beads. The repeating landscape includes pieces of hand dyed silks, scrunched rayons, recycled clothing, thread painting, tiny seed beads, and micro traditional and non traditional quilting. The eighteen doves have feathers that were cut out, inked, fused and stitched. The doves help to create a magical scene as they flutter around the quilt. Extensive machine quilting finishes the quilt.
