Taiga, taiga, burning bright…

During the spring snowstorms here on the Palmer Divide, I read about life in Siberia.    I found a drawing by Ivan Zelenin from 1679 of a monastery built as a group of small log cabins.  This drawing has tremendous power, even after all these years.   I am making a series of quilts using the drawing.  Log cabins are an American patchwork quilting design, using elements of light and dark colors.

These quilts will venture off the grid into the fabulous perspective of the Zelenin drawing.  The photo captures a small part of the Russian Log Cabin quilt, with my oldest cupola-shaped pincushion in the foreground.
