This art quilt on canvas is RESERVED FOR Courtney. Please do not purchase unless you are Courtney.

This is a one-of-a-kind art quilt on canvas of Sky Woman, also known as Nokomis. There are several versions of the story of Turtle Island. This art quilt depicts the story of Sky Woman, who is pregnant and resting on the back of a giant turtle. This giant turtle is transformed into turtle island with the help of muscrat, who brings Sky Woman a piece of earth which she transforms into Turtle Island.

This art quilt was constructed using batik fabrics. When the quilt was finished I sewed along the edges of the quilt with wool yarn. Then I hand sewed the quilt onto a canvas I painted using
Shiva Paintstiks.

Canvas size is 9" X 12" with a 1 3/8" profile.
