This quilt is glass beaded all over to give that illusion of bubbles which the fish blow while they breathe,  with lots of thread...

This is an African inspired art quilt amongst other newer pieces that will be featured on December 2016, in an episode on Sewing with Nancy, a Nancy Zieman production segment.

It has been an honor to have been featured on an exciting episode as a Nancy's corner guest.

Through my artsy journey in quilting, people have often asked me why I never created male silhouettes in dance, and to answer them, there really has not been an actual reason why, but this time I have heavily incorporated men, and I can assure you that this art quilt loaded with tonnes of testosterone, measuring approximately 72"/40" is Majestic, Magnificent and Rich in Kente.

 

The full quilted and embroidered piece will be unveiled on December 26th 2016, on the

Nancy's Corner Segment.

The full piece is just STUNNING... and will only be available when the show airs.

Stay tuned..... Simply Eye Candy,

Wendy Mamattah.
