1/2 Square Triangles

Susan really likes doing 1/2 square triangles.  This is the latest she brought for show and tell.
I gave her some bonus triangles from another project and look what she did!

Give A Way Winner

I didn't expect a big response to my offer of Counted X Stitch magazines and I was correct.  Renee will receive 2 bundles of these magazines and I know she'll put them to good use.

Give A Way

Does anyone do Counted X Stitch anymore?  I have vintage patterns for 2 lucky ladies that might be interested.  If you are, just let me know.  I will pick 2 names of winners in a few days.  Thanks for visiting the Quilting Corner

Snow In Israel

It doesn't happen very often but it did this Shabbos.  This is a picture of my patio before the rain came and washed it away.

Dog/Cat Beds

I've finished the first bed for dogs/cats which I hope will be donated to an animal shelter.  I hate to put all those tiny scraps in the trash.  Now they are being used to stuff these little beds.  The older I get the more I dislike waste, so this helps my need to do something about it. What about you?

 I used a thicker fabric for the outside in hopes that it will hold up well.  I may use old jeans too.

Siddi Quilts

Does any one have information about Siddi Quilts from India that are called Kawandi?
I've seen videos on the internet and I would love to know how to make them.  They remind me of quilts made by ladies of Gees Bend.

Latest Comfort Quilt

Our latest comfort quilt is completed.  It will be great for a little boy. I'm so happy to finally get some quilts ready for when we need them.  All fabrics are leftovers.  We are getting better at not wasting anything.

Always Working

The ladies are always working on something.  Here Susan has her latest.
And Sara will have her sampler finished soon.
Sara continues to learn a great deal about hand quilting from Susan.  We all find hand quilting very relaxing.

Hand Quilting

Sara finished her sampler and now is hand quilting it.  It's taking awhile, but worth the time and effort.

Blue & Pink Comfort Quilt

The blue and pink comfort quilt is finished.  It's light weight and will be great for someone in a hospital bed.  We always hope it will bring a smile to someone that is suffering.
