This was a very busy get together this week. It will be the last time we will be meeting until after Pesach (Passover). From now on we will be busy cleaning, shopping and cooking for this very important holiday.
Naomi brought two exciting new projects. The first is a wall hanging which is perfect for a pre-teen or teenager. It's meant to hold hair brushes and other hair accessories. Notice the back is made from recycled denim fabric. Of course it could hold anything.
This is a hand painted picture frame surrounding a fabric glued picture. Notice the flowers are 3 dimensional and the cute little buttons in the middle. The ducks are made of wood. Naomi enjoys painting and likes to use this medium in her work. This is a charming picture for any little girls bedroom.
Shifra has finished her purple quilt tops. She made so many squares that she decided to make two quilts. We did show some of the squares in a previous post before they were sewn together. My hats off to Shifra. For a new quilter she is amazing.
Renee S is working on hexagons and brought this project for everyone to see. Notice the second row is hand quilted stitches and not pieced hexagons.
Susan just received 3 new books from the America. She brought them along for all of us to enjoy. It helps a great deal to see a book before you buy. Now I know that I would like to buy at least 2 of them. You can view Susan's blog at http://susanquilts.blogspot.com/
Renee S brought in her daughter's (Bryna) latest picture album. Bryna had a terrific idea for her Mom. She took Renee's quilt pictures and combined it with her own specialty -- paper scrapbooking. And now you can see the memorable results. The album outside cover was also made by Bryna. You can view Bryna's projects at http://bryna-crafts.blogspot.com/
Rena brought in her log cabin quilt and pieced backing to have us sandwich it for her. We discussed how it should be quilted and it was hard to decide. It's so beautiful that she's keeping this one. This can really be called a reversable quilt.
