Welcome Home

Susan has been away for too long. She is back with us for a little while and of course she has something to show that she has been working on.
Susan, we are sadden by the loss of your father. May you be comforted by all those of Zion and may he rest in peace.

Renee Is Busy

Renee is always busy. If it isn't a quilt it's counted X stitch. Here she shows her latest baby bib and another Alef Bet design.

Diaper Bag

It isn't always quilting time.  Renee made this diaper bag for a family member. It turned out just right.

Left Overs

There were left over flannel triangles from Sara's quilt. Instead of getting rid of them, the start of a doll quilt has begun.
This is the front.
This is the back
We will just have to see if this project ever gets finished.

Shifra Has Been Busy

This week I hope to show Shifra's quilts that she has been working on.
 Sorry, this was e-mailed to be and I don't know how to turn it.  But you get the idea.
This lovely blue string quilt is for her grandson.

A Quilt For Batsheva

This quilt was made by Shifra for her latest grand-daughter, Batsheva. It's a Jaybird quilt pattern called Cinnamon Bun. She really enjoyed making if because there were no Y seams.
 She has many more on the list.  We will just have to wait and see.

Shifra's Puzzle

Shifra made this scrappy puzzle that her daughter gave her.  It turned out wonderful.
I think you can see that it is a real puzzle in the second picture.

Learning About Sewing Machines

This week we spent some time learning more about our sewing machines.  Not all feet look alike. Not all walking feet go on the same way. It's good to spend some time and really learn about our machines.

Ric Rac

Sara's latest baby quilt is almost finished. It's an X and Heart pattern. The X's didn't seem to stand out enough so Sara is using Ric Rac to make the X more visible.

Not Quilt Related

Since my husband passed away this month I find it's hard to cook for just one. So I have been trying some ready to eat meals. Talk about disappointment. This is what the package looked like on the outside and this is what it looked like inside. Little brown balls. Does that remind you of anything? I did try a few and it tasted as bad as it looks.

Unfinished Quilt Top

I started this quilt top a very long time ago.  It's hand pieced and it's time to at least get the top finished. I don't want to cut off any of the stars so I'm making sure there is enough white around each. I think I will add another white boarder. What do you think?

A Very, Very Busy Day

The ladies accomplished a lot yesterday. Just wait and see.
Bryna started a comfort quilt. She is still deciding on the borders.
 Bryna put this top together with 9 patch squares that I made. Now it has been sandwiched and is ready for quilting. This will be another comfort quilt.
 Sara sandwiched this darling flannel baby quilt. It's too, too cute.
Avigail finished her borders.
The ladies helped to sandwich Bryna's Hunters Star quilt. As I said it was a very busy day.

Working On A Comfort Quilt

Bryna took a bunch of my scrappy 9 patch squares and put this top together. Now she is looking for the right backing for it. By the way, why does every 9 patch block come out to a different size?

Paint By Numbers

Renee loves to try different things and this is one of her latest.  It's a paint by number picture and it turned out very, very nice.

Yes, we are still getting rockets firing at us everyday. I spoke to my brother in Philadelphia and he said he has not see anything in the news about this. So much for one sided reporting.
