My first thought was, of course, a Mariner's Compass Moon. That would have satisfied the "m" requirements, since apparently modifiers count.
But I threw in some moonflowers as well. I did foundation paper piecing, English paper piecing, lots of needle turn appliqué, and a little fusible thread appliqué.
The result is a wallhanging, Mermaid Rising.

Roxanne's mermaid fabric in a "participation prize," so that got tucked into my stash in short order.

I had fun making mine, despite my loathing of deadlines. My friend Debbie had just given me some peacock-themed fabric, which worked beautifully for the mermaid's tail, and almost everything except the backing came from fabric I already had in my stash--it's always a delight when my diligent shopping pays off!
