The quilts will provide a stunning backdrop for the events of the 2014 winter Olympics. In the announcement, the Organizing Committee said: "Such patchworks were an indispensable part of Russian peasants’ homes. Over time, this technique became a widely acknowledged branch of traditional arts and culture. An interesting fact from Russian history is that Catherine, the wife of Peter I, personally sewed a patchwork for her husband as a gift."
