Where do Quilters find their inspiration?
Often by viewing the shapes and images around us.

"Celestial Splendor is based on the ceiling in the crossing tower
of Canterbury Cathedral,
one of the oldest and most famous structures in England.
Canterbury was an important spiritual center ever since Augustine,
but it became a major pilgrimage destination
after the martyrdom of St. Thomas Becket in 1170
The tower and ceiling were designed by English Gothic
architect John Wastell"
Rachel's fabulous use of color
makes this quilt a masterpiece
in it's own right.
