A Quilt For A Bat Mitzvah Girl

Rina has been busy getting this special quilt finished for a girl having her Bat Mitzvah. It's really cute and if I would have to name it, I would say Sunshine.
Here you can see Sara checking it over.
Here is a closer look at the squares that have been personalized.

Ladies Day Out

Recently several of the ladies went to Jerusalem for the day.  We had a great lunch, rode the new train in the center of town and visited two museums.
The first museum was the Psalms (Tehillim) museum off of Cook Street.
There are 150 Psalms and the painter Moshe Tzvi HaLevi Berger, painted a picture that represented each one.  This was a massive accomplishment.  I purchased a book that showed a few of the paintings and a detail discription of each.  This is a must see for everyone.
Next we went to the Ticho House.  This is both a restaurant and a museum with a beautiful garden.

If you like antiques, you will enjoy inside.

Book Review

I was asked a long time ago to review "Build Your Best Log Cabin" which was sent to me by e-mail.  With so many things to do, it has taken me a long time to get to this book, but now I'm happy I did.  It a terrific book and I'm very excited about it.
There have been several bloggers out there that have also reviewed this book.
The cover shows 3 styles of Log Cabin.  It covers Traditional, Courthouse Steps and Chevron. The pictures, instructions and charts are clear and easy to follow.  There were a few errors which have been corrected so I know everything is correct.
Quilters like Ricky Tims, Shon Mcmain, Lori Christianson, Marti Michell, and Liz Porter are presented.  It was like meeting up with old friends.  There are also great tips included.  I'm thankful to Eric Woolf from "Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting" for giving me the opportunity to review this free book.  I hope to make all the quilts shown so I have lots of work ahead of me.

Hubby"s Quilt

First, I would like to thank everyone that has replied to my call for help.  The people that live near by have donated clothing, financial assistance and even some orphaned blocks.  It is so much appreciated.
I have finally finished my husbands quilt.  He waited so long for his special quilt while everyone was pushed ahead of him.  It's on his bed and he sleeps with it every evening.  He likes people to see it when they come here, so to me this means he really likes it.

This has been a difficult week.  Bryna's daughter "Hannah" had a horrible fire in their apartment and has lost everything.  Thank G-D, no one was injured.  They have 13 children and no insurance to cover their loss.  I'm asking if anyone has quilts, quilt tops or orphan blocks that they can donate, it would be more than appreciated.  Our group will try to get quilts to them as soon as possible. You can send your donations to me and I will be sure that they will receive it.

Renee's Been Busy

These baby quilts aren't finished; but, they will be soon.
Her tablecloth is on the dining room table and looks great with her kaleidoscope quilt hanging over the sofa.
Renee's latest finished project is this darling little girls cape.  It turned out so cute.

We've moved over to Bloglovin' and so far it's OK.  I still have to learn more about it.  I was happy with Google Reader but as you all know, it's coming to an end.
We no longer will accept comments by anyone using "Anonymous". We are getting spam comments on a daily basis and I know many of you are also.  It's getting to be too annoying.  This is world we live in today.

Sahra Has Joined Us

For a new quilter,  Sahra is doing beautiful work.  She brought this quilt along this week for show and tell.  A darling little flannel.
She also finished another child's quilt top.

She chose this white with black dot fabric for the back and the binding.  We had enough time to sandwich it and now she can get started on the quilting.
Sahra and Sara helped sandwich my last comfort quilt and Sahra volunteered to quilt it.  So now I get back to some of my other projects.

Susan's Getting Better

I'm happy to say, Susan was able to join us for sewing this week.  After lots of pain and discomfort she is healing.  We were so happy to have her back.

She brought along this little quilt to hand quilt while we were busy working.
