Susan just completed this blue and yellow quilt and brought it to our quilting group for show and tell. It's a fantastic quilt and everyone loves blue and yellow quilts. I'd like to make one myself, so on the my list it goes. Susan, thank you for bringing it to Betar. You continue to inspire us.

Susan has been working on this applique and all the pieces for the top will be completed soon. It's a wonderful hand applique that can be taken with you and worked on a little at a time. I'm seeing the pattern on other blogs, so it must be popular at this time and I'm sure, enjoyable to do.

Naomi made another painting of flowers. The picture doesn't show how adorable it really is.
She also has started an applique for a children's stool, using denim fabric. Only the top is completed. I'll show this again when it's finished. Her kids will love this.
Sara and Renee S, made a new tote bag together. Sara, using her fabrics, cut it out and Renee did the sewing. It's really fun to work together.
Renee B has finished her wall hanging and if off to London to visit her daughter. She finished it just in time for this trip. It looks lovely and just the way she wanted.
Rina has been working on her Batik Log Cabin over the past few weeks. The top is completed now and she is going to wait before she quilts it. It is for a family member and in case it's a surprise, I don't want to mention who it is for. You don't often see this pattern using this fabric but it turned out to be extraordinarily beautiful.

We have made the big time. Our Quilting Corner group was written up in Binah Magazine. Binah is a weekly magazine for the observant Jewish community. They look for organizations or people that participate in acts of a kindness and charity. Quilting falls into that category. Quilters are very giving people. We are always making quilts for others. I can't reproduce the article here, but if you have been following our blog, you would have seen most of the quilts and stories behind them that appeared in the article.
