Techniques: 
The background of the top is hand dyed cotton batting.  All of the fabrics in this piece were fused to the batting and then quilted with free-motion quilting.   The sun and new moon were made by crocheting with blended cotton and metallic threads.  The people were rubber-stamped and painted-by-hand using fabric paint.  Fabric paint was also used around the sun.  Glass beads were hand stitched for their hair.  The binding edge was rolled and stitched with an overcast stitch.

Materials:  Fabrics used were cotton batting, commercial cotton fabrics, silver lame, and raw silk fabrics.   Threads used were rayon, cotton, metallic, and mono filament,  nylon threads.  Glass beads and fabric paint were used for embellishments.  Polyester batting was used between the top and the backing.
