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.

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.

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