HaBayit shel Benji

Mazel Tov to our sister quilters on the job they have done and all those that where involed in this project.
Thank you to the volunteers who helped to make up the first batch of beds on the new floor! A special thanks to Terry Mowszowski and friends who brought the quilts for our soldiers' beds! Ivan joined today and more will be arriving all week. WELCOME to HaBayit shel Benji
These ladies are doing a fantastic job to help lone soldiers have a home to relax and enjoy when they aren't in the field. They are not part of our quilting group in Betar Illit, but are part of our extended family, a group of talented quilters. All quilters get involved and we are so proud of the work they do.

On The Design Wall-Super Easy Hourglass Quilt Blocks

I have lots of ugly fabric and this is a great way to use them.  By the way, I'm not really sure how I acquired so many ugly fabrics. I must have liked them as some point in time.
Missouri Star Quilt Co has a video which they call "Super Easy Hourglass Quilt Blocks".  They are 5" squares made into 4 patches.  You should check it out.
