What are you most proud of? I loved learning to bead for this piece, adding the goddess' bling, and I'm very proud of all the time I spent wrestling with gold metallic embroidery thread for outlining the feathers on the wings. It was also challenging working with the project spec, as the fabrics were all very similar in colour and value, and this had to make up an awful lot of the final quilt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ancient Egyptian art is highly stylised, with striking shapes, lots of geometric patterns, and a limited colour palette, all of which adapt beautifully to quilting. There is plenty to inspire you if you want to create an Egyptian design of your own, just have a rummage around on Google Image. Embroidery, beading, painting on fabric, advanced piecing and applique can all be used successfully.

Is this a serious offer to buy? The quilt is for sale, but considering the quality of the work and the amount of time it took to make, I am looking for quite a high price.

Beautiful quilt. Must have taken awhile to design and complete this quilt. Congrats.

Four months, I think, though I don't do a huge amount of work each day due to disability. Thank you!

4 months, that is outstanding. I too have a disability and find it hard to get things completed in a year depending on the size. What's your secret?
