Purim Masquerade!

The Book of Esther and the holiday of Purim

This quilt reflects the story and descriptions of the royal Persian court under King Ahashverosh with its ostentation, drinking parties, harems, and banquets. For the holiday it adds hamentashen, costumes, charity coins, the Megillah, and the quilt itself is masquerading as a Persian rug.

Hand and Machine Pieced by Joanne Yocheved Heiligman.  Quilted by Julie Clubb.  

The signature and title on the reverse are shown as an open Megillah scroll.
