Hunter's Star

Ruth has started working on the Hunter's Star quilt pattern.  First she made a sample using scrap fabrics to see if she liked doing it.
 Well of course she liked doing it, so now she is working on the real thing.  
 More pictures to follow over the next few weeks.

Rina's Quilt

Rina has been working on the "L shape ruler quilt".  The batik fabrics are fantastic.
 The dots you see on the quilt are only for Rina to keep track as she organizes the quilt.  Don't worry, they will be coming off.

A Daughters Quilt

Renee's daughter Mimi made this quilt.  It has a little more quilting to be done and then it will be finished.  It's so much fun to have quilting daughters.

Update On Red,Black And White Quilt

It looks like it will be a tablecloth and not a quilt.  Rina has made a decision, so the ladies were helping to decide how to make it larger. There isn't enough of the fabric that was planned so everyone had suggestions on what to do.  Quilters are the BEST friends.

A Quilt Retreat

My dear friend Kiki Finlayson in Oregon just posted this message on Facebook and I want to share it with you. 
" What is it that compels us otherwise normal people to take perfectly good pieces of fabric, cut them into smaller pieces, then sew them back together to make quilts? No matter, it is a great joy to those of us who follow this path. Quilt retreat in Newport!"
I wish I could have joined her.  It would have been so much fun for me.

White, Black and Red

It looks like someone is planning a white, black and red quilt.  We will just have to wait and see what becomes of this fabric.

A Grandson's Quilt

My grandson Yaacov Mendel has been making a quilt for the first time.  This is just the top and he hopes to finish it this week.  My grandson Moshe Aaron is helping him hold it up for the picture.  It's interesting that my grandsons are more interested in making quilts than my granddaughters.

A Quilt For A Three Year Old

I just finished a quilt for a grandson that is turning 3 years old.  The center is a panel which I've used before for another grandchild.  I should have bought more of these panels when I had the chance.

Hand Work

We all enjoy having some hand work to do and Renee is no different.  She just started this needlepoint which is just darling.

Monday, January 4, 2016


Rina made this darling ABC flannel quilt top.  It was a panel and needed to be larger so she made strips in between certain lines.  It will be so, so cute when finished.  It was sandwiched today so it's ready for quilting.
