The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

Archive for September 2010

Unfortunately not good news from the drs and not feeling too well nowadays. So, please bear with me with my sporadic posts and replies… 😦
Hope to be 🙂 next time!

Its funny how I always thought one sewing machine was enough and never understood the need to have more than one.  That was before I became a quilter and find deep satisfaction in my work. 

Well to get to the point.  my Pfaff is on the fritz, I lost the pedal to my new Bernina, and I can’t figure out the bobbin of my new featherweight. I was ready to punch someone out today!  Good thing it was a dreary rainy day and I went to sleep instead and only dreamed of quilts. 🙂

Tomorrow is another day… hope it is a great one for you!

Everyone thinks (and hopes!) they are different and unique.  We all want to feel that we maybe are a little bit different than the next guy.  So, I was sitting and eating my brunch at work, which I very often do, and a young girl of about 11 said she also eats Cheerios with chocolate chips.  Now imagine my utter suprise! I always thought only my kids and I did that!  And here was a perfect stranger saying she loved to eat her Cheerios with chocolate chips!  Maybe she was stolen at birth?

I’ve posted pictures of my Holocaust Quilt before (original holocaust quilt post), but it means so much to me that I want all the new readers to have a look at it too. This special quilt will be the kick-off of my monthly raffle- this month the prize is a $5 gift card to my store, Sew Materialistic or a $5 coupon off your next purchase online @ www.sewmaterialistic.com. In order to enter please post a comment, “like” the page, and suggest our Facebook page to a friend.
Thank you for looking and Good Luck!

The front of my Holocaust Quilt

Back of my Holocaust Quilt

When I finished the holocaust quilt, and put in the last stitch, I sat back and announced that I finally finished my life’s work. my youngest daughter was sitting there and said quite innocently, “I thought we were your life’s work!”

How true, they all are, and I thank G-d for them everyday. But this quilt is important to me, too, because it tells the story of my mother’s family during the Holocaust. As a religious Jew, who lost most of my family during that time, the naysayers (deniers, revisionists etc) hit a very sensitive cord in me.

How could someone say it all never happened when just from one family so many perished? But the point of the quilt is not about the loss but, rather, how many of us survive today to prove that we are still here and the master race is no longer. (read more about the Holocaust quilt).
