The Grand Mosque for Quilters….and Other Artists

Every time I go to the Grand Mosque, I am overwhelmed by the patterns in the tiles and carvings and artistic niches. There is such a richness of line and texture here, and so much of it could be translated into patchwork and applique and quilting designs as well as used as a springboard for other mediums. I’ve attached some photos of the ones that make me want to get to my drawing board and design my own patterns. I hope you enjoy them.
