A'tayer and the stall in the Friday Market of the City of the Dead, Cairo

I am quilting A'tayer. Almost done too - it takes additional time since I keep stopping to add the images in metal foiled jersey - that is really fun!

It is a biggish quilt - 1.3 metres across, and 2 metres long. Here are some teasers.


A'tayer's face.

Showing the gold hamzas beside him on one side...


And the weird Islamic Staff thing on the other - Sam owns this object.


More metal bits - did I say that A'tayer sells old metal junk - some collectable and some just junk Now and again however there is an absolute gem of an item!

This should just keep you hanging in until I can put up some finished quilts.

Jenny - he is wonderful and I absolutely adore the metallic highlights. Can't wait to see them all in Melbourne.

I am loving these. Metallic stretch jersey? How are you securing it? Fusible web? It is taking the shape beautifully.
