Holding the World


A new friend recently shared with me the artwork of Nicholas Roerich. I was particularly struck by one piece called Holds the World. It is currently my desktop picture. I have decided to name this new quilt top "Holding the World." I photographed it this morning on my grass that desperately needs to be cut, so the quilt did not lay flat. I'm planning to enlarge it a bit with a border of some kind but have made no definite decisions. At least the bulk of it is done, and I can begin putting together something for a new BOM class that will probably start in the fall.


This pattern comes from an old Quilts with Style magazine from 2006. The 12 block patterns can be found here. My first one was done in batiks and set like this...


What a difference!

That's a beautiful arrangement. It really does look like a turtle shell.
