The Sochi Olympics Patchwork Quilt!

Quilting, like many other art forms has a rich history in many different countries all across the globe! Russia is absolutely no exception and when it was time for them to settle on a look for the 2014 Sochi Winter Games, they went with a tradition as warm as it is welcoming, the patchwork quilt! I just adore the way they put all of these traditional Russian patterns together by hue! SO PRETTY!

Isn't it cool to see a world-wide event highlighting our favorite pastime? I just LOVE this map version of the design! You can read more about this project here!
Tell us! What did you think of the Sochi Olympics Quilt??
