The Fertility Goddess

The Fertility Goddess finished!!! This is a double sided quilt that is machine pieced, appliqued and quilted. It is embellished with Tsukineko inks, acrylic and Lumiere paint, heavy metallic threads, beads and Swarovski crystals. She was an absolute joy to make!
Over Easter weekend, I found I could not close my plastic container full of scraps. It was too full so I decided to liberate some fabric from it and came up with my rendition of the fertility goddess. This piece is heavily quilted and I am currently in the process of inking and painting the back of the quilt. My plan is to further embellish front and back with thick metallic blue/green/purple threads and beads. I would like for people to be able to see the goddess on both sides of the quilt. I think it's a neat concept.

What a vibrant use of scraps - did you see the idea of having a tunnel on the very top of the quilt, so it can be hung to show both sides?
