Shifra isn't always able to join us on Monday's because of a full time job. But this doesn't stop her passion for quilting. This is her latest and it's great.

Are you doing Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilt? How is it coming along? A few of us in Israel are following along and enjoying it very much. We will show you are progress from time to time.
By the way, you can now see her last quilt-cam for 2014 which was very upbeat and fun. Just go to her Quiltville blog and you can connect on the very top. Just look for quilt-cam.

Sara has been working on this Birch quilt recently. It's still in the process but moving along. It has been sandwiched and is ready for quilting. Beautiful, beautiful quilt.
This is the interesting back.
We like to sandwich all our quilts on my dinning room table. Here Sara is deciding what thread to quilt it with. I'm so glad I brought this table over from America.

Four ladies in our group, including me, have started Bonnie Hunters Mystery quilt. I'll show you our progress as we go along. We are all excited about doing this. It's our first Mystery quilt.
I'm using the Easy Angle ruler for the first time. I'll let you know if I like it.

While I was waiting for the Mystery Quilt to begin on Quiltville, I started this. Bonnie was making a quilt on her Quiltcam for a baby that is due very soon. I already had the 9 patches so I said why not. Within 2 days I had the top done. I don't know when it will be quilted but this will be a wonderful comfort quilt for a little boy. I really like the way it turned out. This picture just shows the blocks on my design wall. I decided to make one extra row to make it longer.

I tried something new. I made all the shashing strips from crumbs. Little pieces of fabric that I would put in the trash. This top was given to the Unity Quilters and they will finish it. I really like the way it came out. I'll have to keep using my crumbs from now on. Also, Terry from the Unity Quilters took our reversible jeans quilt. All the soldiers quilts will be given out very soon.

Meet Terry our special guest. She came quite a distance to join us. Our group donated 3 quilts and 1 quilt top. Terry and her fellow quilters will be delivering them to IDF soldiers that have been injured. I hope to show you the quilts over the next few days.

Renee has just finished this lovely Tiffilin bag. I think it will be the first of many to come. It's so, so special.
This has has been a very difficult week for us. So much sorrow and pain. We must continue to do for others as we heal. We want to bring joy to others.

One of the ladies in our group is looking for this pattern. If anyone has it, could you please share? It's in the book PATCHWORK QUILTS TO MAKE FOR CHILDREN by Margaret Rolfe. It's no longer in print.

I'm always amazed that every Friday before Shabbos these flowers are sitting on this corner with no one around. It's the honor system and it works. There is a little box to put your money in after you pick out your flowers. It's wonderful to live in Israel.

Erez, the co-owner of Pissott, is amazing. He follows his dreams. Erez wanted a batik shirt. So what's a fellow to do when you can't find what you want?. He took a sewing class and made it himself. Be sure to ask him about it when you visit the next time.

The next time you are on Facebook, look up a new group called
QUILTS FOR ISRAEL'S WOUNDED WARRIORS
These women are doing wonderful work. They have made and delivered 13 quilts, so far, to IDF soldiers that are still in the hospital. Here are pictures of their visit to Tel Hashomer.
If you wish to help in this group effort just look them up on Facebook for further in formation.
