Passover Quilt Festival

The Quilt Festival is held twice yearly at Nurit's house in a pastoral little village. She has a large yard to hang all the quilts on display. The weather was gorgeous, and it was a pleasure to sit outside with the other quilters, watching those beautiful quilts fluttering in the breeze.
Here are just a couple of the quilts that were shown.
The one in the center was my favorite. What a wonderful scrap quilt, and such a great use of color!

This one was just amazing. Lots of little Stack & Whack kaleidescopes. A lot of work went into this one!

This quilt features an unusual hexagon. The use of striped fabrics really makes this one!

You may have seen Sara's quilt in one of my older posts. Sara is a member of our quilt group in Beitar. She and a number of the other ladies came from Beitar (and Beit Shemesh) for the show. Isn't her batik quilt stunning?
