Shifra talked about how she made a quilt from her Mother's handkerchiefs.
Shifra also explained how she made a quilt from a pattern she found in a magazine and how she made changes. She used mostly used clothing for this quilt. She wanted the reporter to know that this doesn't have to be an expensive hobby.
Hinda showed her jeans quilt. We all enjoy making jean quilts especially because it doesn't cost anything. She did a wonderful job and her son really enjoys using this quilt.
Susan just returned from Houston and brought back a few fat quarters for the ladies. This was very thoughtful of her and it was hard to choose. Which would you have picked?

Although it isn't completed, this is Rina's new shower curtain. It's just fabulous! We have so many talented ladies here. One of the greatest things about our group is how we teach each other. Sara, is very experienced in sewing, so she is able to assist Rina in finishing this very professionally.

Shoshana R was just in England and America visiting her children and grandchildren. While there, she bought new quilting tools to make her quilting easier. Although I lend my quilting tools to the ladies, they like to have their own.

I've just finished putting all the rows together on this gift quilt we are making. We still have extra fabric so I think there will be borders added. Next week we will start this and get started with making our quilt sandwich. We would like to have this finished by June 14th. It's coming along nicely. Please remember this is a surprise, so don't tell anyone!

Renee S. says ever since she made her first quilted bag everyone is asking her to make them one too. She's very busy this week making them per their request. One is for diapers, another for taking to Shul on Shabbos, and some just bigger than others. I think she really enjoys this. There is always a big smile on her face when she shows them to the ladies.

My oldest granddaughter is having her Bat Mitzvah in July. She asked for a new quilt. Her present quilt was given to her when she was 3 years old and now she is turning 12. So, I can understand why she wants a new one. She asked for a pink quilt with hearts so I came up with this string quilt which I once saw on the internet. It's still a quilt in progress and the blocks are not sewn together. I may make changes as new blocks are added. Can you see the hearts forming? This is a surprise so please don't tell her.

What a busy morning!
First I want to say that Bryna just came back from the States and brought along a little gift for our quilters. A little package of Holly Hobby quilt prints. So adorable. The ladies were so surprised and grateful for this unexpected treat.
Hooray to Avigail. She just finished her first project. A pillow and now she wants to make another.
Naomi has started a children's book using felt. It's a long time project and she will work on this while doing other things. Naomi does other sewing. She enjoys making clothes and does wonderful work.
Shifra finished her latest quilt top. She ran out of fabric and had to improvise with another color. It's looking terrific. You would never know that it wasn't planned that way. That's the secret we quilters share.
Renee S finished her blue quilt. The hand quilting around the Grandmothers Flower is quite unique and adds so much to this quilt. It's really beautiful. Now it's ready to be given away.
As soon as we finish our quilts we are already planning the next. I know you understand this feeling.
Renee S brought along new fabric that she bought on the internet for us to look over. Our ladies are a think tank and we do a great job at coming up with ideas.

After quilting, several ladies went to Pissott to buy batting for our group quilt. I noticed new quilts that were wonderful in the classroom . The first pattern is from the Nickel Quilts book. Be sure to call Nurit at Pissott for all classes that are available. http://www.pissott.co.il/profile_eng.aspx

This was a very busy day. We continued to put blocks together for the group quilt we are making. We made 4 rows and now have 3 more to go.
Renee B is working on her Tumbling blocks which will be a wall hanging.
Esther surprised us with this scrappy quilt. She wanted to use up lots of little pieces. It's almost finished now.
Rina is working on her shower curtain. We all gave ideas for colors to use for shashing and agreed that white would look the best.
