I just got off of a Zoom meeting with some friends from our quilt guild. It was planned at the last minute so a lot of members didn’t hear about it in time to join, but it was sure fun to see faces ….
and hear what these amazing people have been doing. Several of these are serving our country by making hundreds of masks. THANK YOU!!!
Now, on to the……
Last week my friend Chandler sent an email that included a link to this photo…..
She said that, when she saw it, she was reminded of some of the “travel” quilts that I have made. I quickly responded and sent my own picture……
This scene had gained my attention on a documentary that we were watching on TV and I took the photo to help me remember the inspiration.
I love the stair-step designs in both pictures but really like the idea of adding the splashes of color from the women’s sari’s.
As I looked more at these photos, I decided to learn about the structures themselves. I found that they are called “Stepwells”. Apparently they originated in India and are designed so that people can walk down to the pool of water rather than having a “normal” well where the water has to be brought up in a bucket from below ground level.
So, I learned something AND have been inspired…..I would call that a day well spent!!!
