King Tut at the DeYoung Museum

We took a trip up to San Francisco on Saturday, going to the DeYoung Museum to see the King Tut exhibit. I have long been fascinated with ancient Egypt, since the seventh grade (at least). Now I am thinking of creating an Egyptian themed quilt using some of the objects I saw at the exhibit. Can't you just see something like this pectoral in a quilt? Not sure of everything yet, and I have several quilts in progress that I want to finish, but meanwhile I can start playing around with designs. Image is from the King Tut exhibit preview images

One thing I do know, I want to put my name in heiroglyphics on the quilt.
