Þingvellir


Just finished another mini-quilt, size 8 1/4" x 11 3/4".
Some years ago took a picture of this old church at Þingvellir in Iceland,
I always wanted to work it into fabric and now it's done.


At Þingvellir – literally "Parliament Plains" – the Alþing general assembly was established around 930 and continued to convene there until 1798. Major events in the history of Iceland have taken place at Þingvellir and therefore the place is held in high esteem by all Icelanders.



Today Þingvellir is a protected national shrine. According to the law, passed in 1928, the protected area shall always be the property of the Icelandic nation, under the preservation of the Alþing.

This brings back memories. I visited Iceland three years ago and it is one of my favourite countries. I am not sure but I think I have visited this church. I must have a look in my photo album.
