Another Fun Meeting

On Sunday we had a meeting of our little neighborhood quilt group. We were joined by a special Guest Quilter, Etty, who came all the way from Beitar.
Etty (in the white sweater set) is a wonderful quilter. She has taught lots of ladies to quilt and has made many beautiful quilts of her own. She also makes many, many quilts for charity. Etty, thank you so much for coming all the way to meet with us!

At our last meeting, I demonstrated the technique of making a foundation-pieced spiderweb block. Sahra picked right up on it and went home and made her own blocks. Sahra is a pretty new quilter, but she already has her own fine collection of scraps. How DOES that happen?

It's impossible to withstand the temptation to turn scraps into mug rugs.

And hexagons are turned into table runners...

...and pillows.

Etty has been hand-piecing these stars for several years now. It's a long term project, but so, so worth it. I love these stars against the white background. And all the fabrics are DOTS!

Bracha makes so many creative projects for her granddaughters. Here's an adorable flower pillow. I love her embellishments. Her flower buttons are my favorites.  

Bracha made a spiderweb block and turned it into a little table topper. How cute is that!!

Hope you enjoyed our meeting. Ladies, I can't wait till we meet again!

Wow, great post. You made me feel like I'm someone special. That doesn't happen very often.
