Wrap a quilt of protection around you and picture yourself shielded with safety. Hang a love quilt above your bed to attract your perfect partner. Even if you ve never sewed a stitch in your life, you can create a free-form quilt to serve as a dynamic talisman of your desires. You will learn to create a lively, vital piece of work that concentrates magical energy into a beautiful work of art.
Quilts have long been used as protection from the chill of winter, and even today with electric heating, quilts are still given as gifts on important occasions such as births and weddings. These simple handcrafts can elicit powerful feelings of protection and memories of love, and the magic within them is undeniable. Magical Fabric Art shows you how to build on this foundation to create symbolic and practical talismans with "only the simplest cutting and sewing ... sharp scissors and new needles." By including some modest preparations to charge the materials with your intent and by giving some extra consideration to the timing of your project, you can construct a quilt for love, a quilt for protection, or many other possible projects that draw on the energies of your creative abilities and focus them into a fabric of your own design. --Brian Patterson
