Unfortunately, there isn’t much information about this amazing photo. Research regarding this mega afghan has been difficult to obtain, especially since no one at Blue Sky speaks fluent Finnish.

Here are a few basic facts. This is the Helsinki Cathedral, located in Helsinki, Finland. It was built in 1830 to 1852.

This astounding yarn bombing is the Guinness World Record attempt for the largest crocheted patchwork quilt in the world.

Attempt…

This is not the largest crocheted patchwork quilt in the world.

Who made the largest and why?

Regardless, this is yarn bombing at it’s best!
