To begin, No this is not a new quilt. Rather it is a seasonal quilt. With it being Hanukkah, there is no better time to display/share/use a Chanukah Quilt.
Where have the pictures been? That is a good question. You see I bought Heavy Duty batteries - my camera did not like them... So I got "digital" batteries instead. Viola - it works! Yes, I have rechargeable batteries - yes I think I know where they are and where the adapter is too - I just don't get all of those things together to actually charge the batteries until I want to use them & then it is too late....
I'll start with the back - well just a corner of the back - it is all made out of this lovely cat flannel. Meow! Cool binding too, huh? I love to use stripes as bindings - especially when that are not "regular" like a perfect pin stripe.
A couple blocks - sorry about the off-color... My red looks very orangey....This pattern was inspired by Pat Speth's Millenium Star. I like this secondary pattern better.... Speacking of secondary pattern, on this quilt I did something that I rearely if ever do - I only used 1 background fabric. (I only had one 2.5 inch WOF strip left over!)
A corner shot - Yes, those are coordinating fabrics! (2 points for those of you out there saying, "Is that Hanukah print in a multi-color - not just blue & yellow or blue & white.)
Hanukkah Sameach - Happy Hanukkah in Hebrew - TOO COOL! I was so excited when I saw that.
