Class Trip To Debbie's

This week's class trip was fantastic.  We met at the home of Debbie in the Har Nof section of Jerusalem.
It was hard to know where to look first.  Her home is a delight with all her creations from the past 16 years.  She is not only a quilter but a real fiber artist with loads of talent.  We are so fortunate to have her in our group. Here is some of what we enjoyed.

This darling quilt was made from leftovers from another quilt  We should never be in a hurry to through any fabric away.

On the left Debbie used the trimmings from a Purim gift and on the right, yes, it's a grenade, not a water pitcher.

The next two pictures are of post cards about 4"x6" that she made and received in a swap.

This was a 3 dimensional picture which, unfortunately, doesn't show up well in the picture.  The butterflies are really taking off.

At first, I thought this was needlepoint, but it was x-stitched.

Each cube in this quilt has a photo.  What a fabulous quilt.

 This is Debbie's Dear Jane, not finished yet.  She's at the half way mark.

On to Debbie's work room for more inspiration.

Back in Debbie's living room, we were treated to an additional show and tell.  We were all delighted in what Debbie had to say.  After all, all quilts have a story.

Notice the center of this marvelous quilt.  Debbie uses the center square for the heading on her blog.  It's absolutely wonderful.

This quilt was made especially to be shown in the book displayed. What a terrific accomplishment!

A very big thank you to Debbie for bringing us into her home and showing us all her inspiring art work.  I hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did.

Of course later we stopped off at the local bagel shop for a quick lunch before heading back home.
