You never know when you will come across patchwork in your daily life. My husband and I rented an apartment in Tsfat, here in Israel, for the weekend. They had a table for their computer and telephone for our use. The table was covered with an old half square triangle quilt top. It was in poor condition and the corners didn't meet, but it had a charm of its own. Can you see the diagonal stripes in the pattern? Sometimes patchwork should be left unfinished as in this case.
