Sacred threads

Sacred Threads is an exhibition of quilts exploring themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace/brotherhood, grief and healing. This biennial exhibition was established to provide a safe venue for quilters  who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey.
"The objective is to create a dignified exhibition of artwork that touches on both spiritual and personal levels all those who view it. We want to share with others the experiences of quilters whose stories may be a source of healing and strength."
I'm delighted that my quilt Ygdrassil has been accepted into the show!
After a mandala drawing lesson I was so inspired by the story, I decided to make a quilt instead of a drawing.
The tree of life with 6 of its worlds. 
In Norse mythology Yggdrasil is an immense fir tree that is central and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to hold their courts. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend into wells. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the 4 stags, a squirrel named Ratatoskr who must run across the branches of Yggdrassil and communicate between the gods.
