Gathering Wheat

 My Mother and Father in law recently returned from a mission to the LDS temple in Kyiv Ukraine.  Mom had seen my quilting shop, and had asked if she could buy one.  I told her that when I love to have people get the quilt they want, because then they'll really use it and love it.  That led to a long discussion about what would be the perfect quilt for her - one made from the colors of the Ukrainian flag and with a wheat motif.  In the Kyiv temple, there is a recurring decoration of wheat - to symbolize the gathering of Israel.
Here's some more of the quilt - I love how it turned out!

  1. Gorgeous!! I love the wheat and those colours are so bright! You've got me scribbling drawings down, I'm imagining a soft gold for the wheat and... a toile-y farm background...??
