How about Haley's comet?

If the Moon is off, if Earth wobbles or if there is a pole shift
how can things like this, predicted decades ago, happen?

You take the embroidery literaly?

Ok, then Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars share the same orbit.
Do they?

It's a creative work - not a scientific drawing.

I searched a little on this subject and found a bigger photo of the quilt: [link to beforeschoolstartsiquilt.com]

Also another nice blog article: [link to beforeschoolstartsiquilt.com]

From the bigger picture I must admit, that I was wrong about Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars sharing the same orbit.

Nevertheless the embroidery is not to scale.

OP may I ask you a question?

Without all the 2012 doom hype - did you have made this post?

Re: LOOK AT THIS: Ellen Harding Baker's "Solar System" .
From the OP's link:

"The design of Ellen's striking and unusual quilt resembles illustrations in astronomy books of the period. Ellen used the quilt as a visual aid for lectures she gave on astronomy in the towns of West Branch, Moscow, and Lone Tree, Iowa. Astronomy was an acceptable interest for women in the nineteenthth century and was sometimes even fostered in their education."

That answers the OP's question.

So, OP, do you even bother to read before you post? Or do you just go into reaction mode immediately?

Interesting there are no UFOs or ancient aliens on the quilt.

Must have ripped out those stitches in 47

Good question Hydra .. I rdk. Just a coincidence i stumbled upon it. Did not find it in a "doomy cotext". Found the link on a "geek" site. No doom or 2012 hype there. Been reading for a while on GLP, so when i saw this i tought this could be my first contribution. Kind of fitted to the forum .. ?

Will check ur links .
