Nefertiti, Goddess of Fertility Art Quilt

This is an art quilt that started with a fabric weaving.  In the shapes of my woven circle I saw a dancing body so I started beading.  I used sequins and seed beads, buttons, tube beads, copper leaf findings… I created the face, hands and feet from polymer clay and then attached them to the quilt. Beaded her hair and the cuffs over her hands and feet.  In order to cover the vast amounts of beading thread on the back of the quilt I used the pillow case technique to back the quilt. I free motion quilted the golden feathers fabric by imitating the pattern of the feathers. This quilt measures 15.5"W X 19.25" H.
