Aaron S.’s Tallit


Aaron’s tallit is from the Torah Portion B’reshit, and depicts the first 4 days of creation. 

The body is a beige raw silk, and the designs are made from silk and cottons.

The first “day” is composed of 8 colors of 1/2’” squares, pieced, very gradually growing from darkness to light. For those of you who are quilters, it’s a “mini” blooming 9-patch with a little variation. The other 3 days of creation are mostly applique.
