Maggie’s Musical Tallit
Maggie came with her amazing grandparents to my studio to design her tallit. Her ideas were to have 2 songs on it that were especially meaningful to her. If you read music, you’ll see that they are the beginning of the songs: “A Bushel and a Peck” and “You Are My Sunshine”. You’ll have to ask Maggie why.
She chose a beautiful lavender dupioni silk for the body and used a deeper purple for the atarah, corners and 2 stripes surrounding the notes. Her grandparents suggested embroidering Marguerites all around the Shema on the atarah and on 2 of the corners with her name in English and in Hebrew.
