Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds

I chose the song "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" to illustrate.  Growing up then everyone knew the title referred to the drug LSD.  I used sky fabric sliced and partially grayed to depict the light and dark of the drug, mostly dark layered upon silver fabric.  I found some old star fabric and used them and beads to show the diamond light.  Lucy everyone will recognize from Peanuts.  Angel wings were added to elevate her into the sky.

Nice Jan, I think you did a good job of illustrating this song. I like the dark and light sky and the "diamonds". Also think Lucy is perfect in here, especially with her closed eyes and that smile..LOL

This is a very nice piece with the background adding so much interest. I am drawn to the different shapes and colors.

Cheery piece for a dark subject. We all know that Lucy would not be part of the drug scene and her dream of diamonds are gem quality. Nice quilt.

I never knew 'lucy' meant LSD. I must have been too old.

Your quilt is just GREAT!
