I couldn't help but notice the necklace that Karen was wearing to our Monday get together. It sure looked like a necklace that any quilter would like. It looked like a modern scrappy quilt to me. What do you think?

Sara and Susan took a class on Hawaiian quilting at the Israeli Quilters Association Conference. They were unable to finish their projects that day. The projects are ongoing and they are still working on them. This is Sara's. She was explaining to us how they made their patterns.
This is Susan's. She has been bringing this project to our quilt group and is continuing to finish the applique.

Shifra has been working on this flower quilt and was unhappy with it till she found a brown fabric of all things. It never accured to her to use brown but when she did, Shifra said that was what was missing. Here it is getting ready to be sandwiched.

I call Sara's new quilt "Sunshine" because that's what I think of when I see. It's on her king size bed now and Sara loves it.
Here I am helping Sara trim the quilt after Susan did all the machine quilting.
Here is Susan explaining to the ladies what she did. We just love show and tell.
And here are some close up pictures of the quilting.
What a wonderful job by both ladies.

After being away in Tsfat, up North, I'm back to doing some sewing again. This is how I left this comfort quilt before I left. It was sitting and waiting for my return. I'm putting on the binding now. This quilt has taken much longer than I expected. That seems to happen often.
My six pointed stars are coming along. No rush for this quilt. I expect this hand pieced quilt to take forever.

We've been watching the progress of Rina's quilt. She says this pattern is easy and comes together quickly. Here she discussed color options for the boarders. So far purple and green seems to be the best choice.

Hadasseh from The 2 Spies blog has made a special request. You can see this on her blog dated Thursday, July 14th. A little 8 year old boy, Aminadav, has cancer. Hadasseh is requesting we send in squares, 6-10 inches, that will be used in making a special prayer quilt for him. Her blog address is http://the2spies.blogspot.com/

You can find quilt pattern ideas everywhere. I recently bought a used chess set for one of my grandsons. I couldn't believe my eyes. What a great quilt pattern on the chess board just waiting for someone to give it a try. In years to come he may remember his grandmother (Bubby) loved to make quilts.
While I was recently in a hospital in Tsfat helping to take care of my grandson, I found something very interesting. In several rooms on the floor, you guessed it, a quilt pattern. It was the Square In A Square. I shouldn't be so surprised. Quilt patterns are everywhere.

Just a reminder that this Monday, July 18th, we will pick the winner of our giveaway. There is one more day to sign up. You don't have to be a follower, although that would be nice. We are giving away 1 Meter of this unique fabric that any quilter would enjoy.
This past week I spent a great deal of time in Tsfat. My little 1 1/2 year old grandson was ill in the hospital and I spent time helping to take care of him. I'm grateful to Hashem for his recovery and that he has just returned home and is doing better. A big thank you to my hubby for continuing our blog by posting the drafts that were ready to go.

Susan has adopted 3 newborn kittens and I mean newborn. She and her family have been feeding them every two hours. Well, they seem to like sleeping on quilts (cat naps); so, Susan is allowing them to sleep on this lovely log cabin quilt top. Now that is love.

Budrutz has wonderful new fabric. And, of course, I had to take advantage of it. Just take a look. These first 2 fabrics really go well together and will make a wonderful little boys quilt.
I found wonderful sky fabric with white clouds. I hope someday to make a landscape.
And her are some more goodies.
