At our local quilt shop Pissott, run by Erez and Nurit Kapara, I recently had the opportunity to talk about the Quilts for Benji project and show and tell some of the completed quilts and even some not yet completed quilt tops. I also showed and spoke about the longarm quilting service we provide and used some of our own quilts to show different styles of quilting. I was assisted by my friend and quilting partner Carol who has put a lot of time and effort into helping us with backing and binding and quilting many of the quilts. here are some pictures from the talk. ENJOY.
Many of the quilt ideas were taken from various sources from the internet from sites like: Moda Bake shop, All people Quilt, Various fabric houses like Hoffmans, Benartex, Michael Miller, offer wonderful free patterns. so for more information and other wonderful ideas, browse these sites.
Made three of these, a little more complicated than most of the design, this is a Michael miller design.
This wastaken from the internet too called Watermelon Shuffle, originally a baby quilt, reworked for a twin sized quilt .
we even have a mention in a new book about Jewish fibre Art, in an chapter written by Shelly Black, what a surprise to flip though it and see my name pop out at me. (more details about the book to come).
Some of the guests who attended the talk took pictures too, so keep a look out on Pissott's page and here for more about the day.
More to come after another marathon day here tomorrow whenwe will be cutting, cutting and cutting some more to make more kits, we are into our last 20 quilts (yes there will be a few extras :).
So, till next time,
