Arabesque #2

I am putting the final touches on a few quilts this week, readying them for my guild show this weekend.  (Come see it on Friday and Saturday at St. Brigid’s Church in Lexington, MA.)  I’ll have two quilts in the show, in addition to the many samples that I pulled together for our special history exhibit.  One of those quilts is “Arabesque #2.”

“Arabesque #2” is machine pieced (painstakingly machine pieced with lots of inset seams) and machine quilted. It’s the second in my series based on geometric tile designs and was based on tile work from the Great Mosque of Cordoba, Spain, which was completed in 987 (Broug, Eric. “Islamic Geometric Patterns,” 27.)
