A while back, the Israel Quilt Association asked for quilters to join in a quilt show up north, in the Galilee, at Tal Gallery in Kfar HaVradim. The show started a bit before Passover and will be running through the end of July. I made the trip up north to look at the quilts in the show.Continue reading “Tal Gallery – Secrets in Fabrics and Threads Exhibit”
On the first Friday of every month, I get together with quilting friends. I don’t know of any quilting friends close by so the lovely women of Modiin have allowed me to join their group. We meet at a different house every month and show off what we are working on and talk quilting. What could be more fun than that?
I am an American by birth. My mother was also born in the US, and her parents were too. My great-grandmother and great-grandfather moved to the States from Lithuania at the end of the 1800s. My father and all his family are from Iraq. We grew up knowing about the Holocaust but my family was never affected closely. As Jews, we are all affected, but my family was a bit more removed than most.
My grandson turned two in August. For his birthday, we bought him a big boy bed. The time has come to move out of the crib and have a real bed. Besides, in a month (b’shaa tova) my kids are expecting a new baby and they’ll need the crib for her. Continue reading “A New Quilt for My Grandson”
I had never entered an exhibition before. This is the first year that I’ve really been involved with the Israel Quilt Association. Every year they have an exhibition and this year I entered it. What fun!
The theme of the competition was the five senses. It was so much fun to see everyone’s interpretation of what the five senses meant to them. I chose the sense of sound. Continue reading “Five Senses Exhibition”
Every year the Israel Quilt Association has its annual workshop. It’s three days of quilting fun. Last year, I was only able to go for one day. This year I went to the whole thing. As my daughter likes to tell me, I went to quilting camp.
I didn’t really know what to call this quilt. The pattern is modern and the fabric is really out there. Not surprisingly, it’s Tula Pink fabric. I’m not sure what the collection is called, but it has otters on Saturn, so I think Cosmic kind of covers it.
My good friend Ziza recently went from being a grandmother of 3 beautiful grandchildren to being the grandmother of 5. That’s pretty impressive. She had two new additions to the family just a month apart. Time for me to do some quilting.
It finally came! Summer is officially here. I just got the fabric that I ordered for my summer sampler quilt. What is the summer sampler you ask? It is a modern quilt pattern designed by some of the best quilt bloggers that are out there today.
I love weddings. Now that may not seem relevant in a quilting blog, but the reason that I bring it up here is that a wedding brought Harriet to Israel. Harriet Carpanini is a Handi Quilter Educator from Indiana. She came to Israel for her neice’s wedding, and during her week-long trip she found some time to share her knowledge with a few of us on this side of the ocean.
