"I wish you HAPPINESS every single day!" by Lyuda

The first thought after announcing the name of the next theme was: “WOW! So many options!”.
But these options make it too difficult to choose just one. So, I've decided to write down (as some of us also did) things which happen every day and list looks like this:
  • Sunrise- sunset
  • Day – night
  • Food
  • News
  • Household chores
  • Favorite things
  • Love to different things
  • We get older
  • Beauty of the day: flowers, sky, nature
  • Happiness – sadness
  • 24 hours – seconds, moments
What to choose? That is the QUESTION!

I like to make positive quilts; I like to use bright colors. So finally I decided to choose “happiness, 24 hours, moments”.
After choosing words I made colors’ choice. Happiness for me is only bright rainbow colors.
Next step was to draw draft. 
First I've wanted to make 24 squares as 24 hours but it didn't feet in 15 inches. Finally I decided to use circle for 24 hours as time go on and on.
The circle was made as spiral from rainbow colors and is divided in 24 segments which symbolize hours and time.
White and black beads symbolize good and bad moments which happen every single day.
Thin threads which end the circle are the time which disappears without being seen. 
I weaved background from different scraps to show that our life and every day consists from pieces of joy, happiness, sadness…
