Some more completed quilts from 2013/4

I have managed to post a few more pictures of some more quilts that I have recently completed.
This is the beauty of having my own longarm machine. QUILTS GET DONE, then added to the pile of ever growing completed quilts that have nowhere to go (yet)
This first quilt, a rather large braid was for a thank you to a very dear friend who has been my "early morning coach" for the last few years, my mantra being "My day starts with an hour of Julie" unfortunately i have not been going and my body is not happy, but, I do manage to still walk the doggy and keep moving. Life has changed a lot over the past year. and circumstances are different, and we are still in touch, I will get back to her eventually.

Stay tuned more pictures of more quilts to come soon.

This is one of 5 quilts I started on our end of year vacation in South Africa, at my log cabin home in the glorious region of "Wilderness " along the east Cape coast. I managed to piece 4 and a bit tops while there and have managed to complete them all, just not taken many pictures of them all yet.

                                                      This one below is a wedding gift, quilt design is Lotus from Jaybird                                                          quilts, fabrics from langa lapu South Africa

                                                   The Barmitsvah boy received his quilt a year later, better late than never, I am happy to report he is eager to get a good night's sleep at the end of the day.

                                                    This was another 'just for fun' quilt with some yoyo's just for fun.

Quilts for Ha Bayit Shel Benji project completed


At last the time has come for us to be able to make beds and put on the beautiful quilts, Each quilt is a gem, and we had a lot of pleasure doing this. below are some pictures of the beds we have made up. a total of 50 beds and 55 quilts made for this amazing project

Completed quilts for OE

I have uploaded some pictures of the first 50+ quilts we have managed to complete so far, for Operation Embrace Quilts for victims of Terror here in Israel. These quilt tops have been donated to us from various sources from quilters in America and locally (some made by me from donated and personal fabrics.)  Carol Smith (my partners) and I have quilted them and completed them with labels provided by the donor groups and by us the Quilters for Operation Embrace. We continue completing the quilt tops we have in our collection and look forward to the day we can hand them over, we are aiming for handing over about 100 quilts within the next few months.
