Sochi Olympics and Quilting

I've been watching the Sochi Olympics with interest. I've really been fascinated by the quilting patterns. I love it. I didn't know that Russian women quilted. I really love these color blends and the patterns together. I love how they put prints together to make a blended quilt.

My grandfather on my mother's side was born in Ljubjiana. It was in Austria when he was born but now it is in Slovenia. Originally the family came from Russia so I feel a connection.

St. Petersburg is so beautiful. I want to go there someday.

Russia can feel very proud of the Sochi Olympics. It is a celebration of excellence, hard work, and talent.
