Waiting for spring seems like it's taking forever.
While that happens I was busy with a fun series of windows.
Here are some. The 1st 2 are older pieces.
I love the fact that the quilt with my mother in the phone booth has a window in it, ha ha, if she was here she would talk and talk and look through the window with her wonderful smile.
To see the other windows in the series you can come to the quilt show of Northern Star Quilt Guild Show May 6, 7 th at the University of Western Connecticut.

CCHS(Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrom) Fundraise

Dear Family and Friends,

As many of you may know, my daughter Roni was born with a rare condition known as Central Congenital Hypoventilation Syndrome (CCHS), a life-threatening condition which causes the impairment of automatic messages from the brain to breathe and for the heart to beat, thus requiring the use of a ventilator or pacemaker for the patient to stay alive. This condition affects only about 1200 patients worldwide. Recently, CCHS was added to the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD).

CCHS parents are making an effort to raise awareness and much needed research funds, so that someday this will no longer be a life-threatening diagnosis. Between now and International CCHS Day, November 12, 2016, you can help spread the light by donating $25, $50, $100 or any other amount. 

As a special incentive, I will be offering one of my handmade art quilts as a gift to a donor to be chosen at random. (there will be a varied selection of different sized quilts from which the winning donor may choose)

You may donate at or send a check to:
 CCHS Foundation
PO Box 230087
Encinitas, CA  92023-0087
You can also donate through Facebook, at The CCHS Foundation.

Make sure to specify that your donation be considered for the quilt giveaway.

Thank you so much for you help!

Even though I posted last May, it seems I was neglecting this blog in favor of Facebook.
That is not my intention.Last May I was lucky to get awards for 2 of my quilts at the Northern Star Quilt Guild annual show in Somers NY. Here it is :S'deh Boker:
This is in the Negev, desert area in the south of Israel.I decided to extend the border in the bottom and continue the mountains in the shear fabrics below which was a challenge once I tried to sew them.

Another quilt that won 2 awards was the "Tamara, tomorrow you are at the laundromat",celebrating 100 years to the kibbutz
Hope you can see the details of Hebrew words on top depicting the various jobs, as well as the many names of kibbutzim in the lower part.
