Jejuri Temple Inspiration

Back in 2016, we spent several weeks in India and one VERY memorable Saturday visiting the Jejuri Temple just outside of Pune.

I took a photo of this ceiling as we were leaving the temple and as I have looked at it over the years, I am interested in the dimension that it exudes. Sometimes I only see a flat design when I look, but sometimes I feel as if it has some dimension to it. Perhaps it was painted in a dome and that is the dimension that I see, but either way, I really like it!!!

…and would love to use the pieced circles in a quilt someday!!

Our day at the temple was one of the most memorable of our trip and…..the yellow doesn’t come out!! If that intrigues you, read further……

So….a fun day of sightseeing AND a new quilt inspiration…..


If you enjoy this daily blog, please share it with your friends!!!

Thank you…….

Coppersmiths in Pune, India

I am currently at my guild quilter’s retreat, so I am sure that you won’t mind if I do something different on this post!!

In 2015, we spent several days in Pune, India and I had the pleasure of exploring the Old city of Pune.

The entire area was filled with craftsmen of one sort or another. One of my favorites was the “Coppersmith” area.

To introduce you, this is the sound that drew us in……

To read more about this craft, please check out this post…….

Needless to say, a few of these beauties came home with me!!!

Please come back for more quilting…..
