The Latest From Shifra

Shifra isn't always able to join us on Monday's because of a full time job.  But this doesn't stop her passion for quilting.  This is her latest and it's great.

This Is So True

Of course he wants a quilt!

Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt

Are you doing Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilt?  How is it coming along?  A few of us in Israel are following along and enjoying it very much.  We will show you are progress from time to time.
By the way, you can now see her last quilt-cam for 2014 which was very upbeat and fun.  Just go to her Quiltville blog and you can connect on the very top.  Just look for quilt-cam.

Quilt Being Used

I just love it when we get feed back about our comfort quilts.  This quilt was donated to an IDF soldier that was injured.  His baby was trying it out.

Happy Chanukah

I found this picture on the internet.  I don't know if it's real or computer generated, but I thought it was cute.

A Long Project

Renee has started a very long time project.  It will be a quilt or tablecloth when it's finished.  It's great that Renee can take this with her everywhere and work on it a little at a time.

The Birch Quilt

Sara has been working on this Birch quilt recently.  It's still in the process but moving along.  It has been sandwiched and is ready for quilting.  Beautiful, beautiful quilt.
This is the interesting back.
We like to sandwich all our quilts on my dinning room table.  Here Sara is deciding what thread to quilt it with. I'm so glad I brought this table over from America.

The Mystery Quilt Has Begin

Four ladies in our group, including me, have started Bonnie Hunters Mystery quilt.  I'll show you our progress as we go along.  We are all excited about doing this.  It's our first Mystery quilt.
I'm using the Easy Angle ruler for the first time.  I'll let you know if I like it.

Thank You Bonnie Hunter

While I was waiting for the Mystery Quilt to begin on Quiltville, I started this.  Bonnie was making a quilt on her Quiltcam for a baby that is due very soon.  I already had the 9 patches so I said why not.  Within 2 days I had the top done.  I don't know when it will be quilted but this will be a wonderful comfort quilt for a little boy.  I really like the way it turned out.  This picture just shows the blocks on my design wall.  I decided to make one extra row to make it longer.

Something New

I tried something new.  I made all the shashing strips from crumbs.  Little pieces of fabric that I would put in the trash.  This top was given to the Unity Quilters and they will finish it.  I really like the way it came out.  I'll have to keep using my crumbs from now on.  Also, Terry from the Unity Quilters took our reversible jeans quilt.  All the soldiers quilts will be given out very soon.

A Soldiers Quilt

This quilt will be going to an IDF soldier very soon.  The top was donated to us from "The Two Spies".  We hope it will help in his healing.

A Soldiers String Quilt

Another string quilt has been completed.  It will be going to an IDF soldier.  We hope he or she will enjoy it.  It's our way of showing our appreciation for all our soldiers do for us.
