So, as you can imagine, I was really looking forward to having the opportunity to see some particularly stunning examples on our recent trip to Russia. I wasn't disappointed!
Here are some of the highlights :
These fabulous, golden domes are on one of the three Churches situated within the grounds of the Kremlin in Moscow. Each church was apparently either for hatching, matching or dispatching the Czars!
These silver domes are actually wooden and apparently can also look green or gold depending upon the way that the light is hitting them. They are the top of a beautiful wooden church that is currently being restored on the island of Kizhi.
Of course I couldn't finish this post without including a mention for the most outrageously over the top Churches of them all :)
Aren't they just the most riotous collection of colours you will ever see, and a feast of quilting inspiration to boot :)
