I’m happily playing with my postcards and will post the new ones.  I do have a confession to make though- I have become obsessed!  I am making a large quilt that needs 1/4″ square triangles, lots of them.  Since I can’t do much more than sit in my lounge chair (I’m doing so well…), I sat yesterday cutting off all the dog ears.  I had this nice huge pile on my work surface and they were all green.  I started handling them and was struck with the idea of making some snippet postcards, too.  as I’m playing, my husband is cleaning the kitchen and brings me 2 handfuls of scraps from the floor and asks me what to do with them.  I begged him to save me from myself and he should throw everything out right away so I don’t have to agonize about how small a piece I should save. Let’s face it: it is getting ridiculous!  How small to YOU keep?  And better yet, for how long and do you really every use it all up????

Congratulations to Silky P. for winning our October Monthly Raffle!

Thank you everyone who participated!

Thank G-d I’ve been busy with work, so haven’t been able to post much… But, when my daughter was in town recently she made me take lots of pictures of quilts I have done over the years- so here is the start of it. These are two quilts I made during my obsession phase with cows- don’t worry that phase is long over! 🙂 (I won’t mention that I’m in to King Kong now, though!)

"Home Home on the Range" I made it in 1994, but didn't get the binding done until '95- procrastination: the name of the game!

I Never Saw A Purple Cow (1992)

Congratulations to the winner Sew Materialistic’s First Monthly Raffle, Christine Hansen!

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).

I’ve been making more postcards for this trading group I joined- “Trading Fabric Post Cards”- a group of 25 people who from all over the world who has to also send out 25 postcards. There is no fee and no rules. If you would like to sign up, just google quilted postcard trading group. I still have these in my possession (past the due date) bec. big cities are quite uncooperative in hand stamping… If the fabric postcards were to go through the machine it can be damaged. By me, they charge .44 cents, then .20 cent fee, then $1 for each handstamp!
As an aside, Sew Materialistic offers free postcard workshops, where everyone just sits and sew postcards- lots of fun!

My daughter, Blima, made this lap quilt as a wedding gift for her best friend. Her friend loves flowers and hearts, so Blima used every flower and heart fabric she could find. It is a positive/negative quilt. If you want more info about how to make it, you can email Blima at info@sew-materialistic.com.

I was busy doing my own quilting on the porch of my daughter’s summer home, when my curious grandkids asked what I was doing. Then they of course wanted to make a quilt, too! CB ,who is 8 yrs old, free formed the quilt and did it all herself, except for the stitching and bling (she cut out the pieces with Wonder Under and ironed it down). L, who is 6 yrs old, drew a picture of what he wanted on a paper, then traced it on the Wonder Under. He picked his own fabrics which I helped him cut out,  he did the placements and I did the stitching.

I took the quilts home to finish quilting in Brooklyn and kept getting phone calls when I was going to be done.  They get them back within the week…

Didn’t they do a great job?!

I went to a quilting retreat last week on the 5.  I think it’s the best kind, the one that I get to spend a day with friends who enjoy the same interest, quilting, even if we do come from very different backgrounds.  We are the Quilters of the Night Kitchen. Yesterday we were able to put together 3 soldier quilts that the Brooklyn Quilters Guild collects to give out to veterans.  We all worked fast and almost finished all 3 tops.  food, music, talk, and quilting-who could ask for anything more?  a great time was had by all.

I think I’ve mentioned it before but I’m going to throw it out again, maybe this time someone will catch it.  Anyone interested in starting a guild?  Meeting to be held on a weeknight instead of on Saturdays.  I know there are a lot of Sabbath observers in Brooklyn that are also quilters.  Would someone like to get the ball rolling?  We can use the store as a stepping off point.  Email me please.

This past Friday we had a meeting of “quilters of the night kitchen”, a group of 9 ladies that get together once a month to catch up on their quilting and life stories.  For those of you that belong to a group, I’m sure you can understand the high I feel every time we meet.  I love these ladies and cherish their friendship even though we all come from different backgrounds,  in the end we are all women who have a common bond, and thats our quilting.

Thank you,

Malke

I’ve been keeping myself busy doing nothing for almost 2 weeks and have finally pulled myself out of the funk and started quilting again!  It’s so funny that for the last week all I wanted to do is vegetate and sleep, and this week I’m so hyped up, I’m not sleeping at all!  That means I have all this time to QUILT.  I worked on 2 3rd baby quilts (if you want to know more, just email me) and on some projects I’m taking classes for.

I’m making a selvage tote bag that I’ve always wanted to try and a new technique for me, portraits.  I think I’m more comfortable with the selvage bag than the portraits but im still working away, which is the point, isn’t it?  To challenge yourself and hone your skills,

’till next time.

I was awed and inspired by an exhibit I went to in Morristown NJ.  I went with a group of ladies and we were treated to a private showing by Jack Walsh, the proud owner of all the quilts.  He is a collector of contemporary quilts and it was an eye opener.  The exhibit made me want to dabble more in contemporary quilting.  I think I’m off to a good start with the post cards I started making and sending out.  I’m having so much fun!  Check them out!

Sew Materialistic Newsletter Spring/Summer 2010

Sewing Classes and Quilting Classes are located in our Brooklyn, NY Store at

1131 McDonald Ave Brooklyn New York.

Good and not so good news.  If you’ve been keeping up with this blog than you know that Blima got engaged and I was busy with her dress and chupa[wedding canopy].  Blima has since broken off her engagement so now I have so much more time on my hands to reorganize my long suffering sewing room.  I finally got all the shelves up and it is really starting to look good.  I’ll take a picture when it’s finished.  I’m soo proud.

I took a group of ladies; Cecelia, Alzaida, Claudia, and Chava to the Somerset Quilt Show on Friday.  We were all tired out after the long day and I think everyone had a good time.  For some of the ladies, this was there first show!  I’m hoping to schedule another trip for May.  If anyone is interested in joining us, please email the store.

I’m having <CENSORED> [complaining] burn-out.  It’s again the time of year for me to start thinking about another newsletter.  I came up with the great idea of not sending out a whole newsletter but instead only a postcard with a burning match on it.  The idea was nixed by one and all, too bad.

I love my quilting store and I love most of my customers, (I’m sure you are one of them), and thank G-d we are doing pretty good in this economy but I still feel burned-out.  In particular, registration for sewing and quilting classes was way down this quarter.  Now I’m cheap and don’t go in for spending my hard earned dollars on anything but quilting fabrics for my stash but I’m always curious about new techniques and patterns and therefore try to take classes that interest me and allow me to grow as a quilter.

There are a few diehards that do take all the classes that we offer and it gives me great pleasure to see them growing and enjoying the sheer joy in learning something new.  Are we not offering enough new and innovative classes?  Should we be offering more detailed work?  More fast and easy?  I dont know where to go so I dont feel like going anywhere.   So there, I’ve said my piece and I feel better [now i have to see if this goes thru my censors](One Word Censored).

I’m on a short vacation of sorts because I’m in L.A. enjoying the sun, in between the rain, and the Road To California quilt show that I try to go to every January.  It was great as usual and I was visually overwhelmed by all the colors and quilts.   Spent too much money of course but that’s not new.

I spent another great day in downtown at Michael Levine, a not to be missed fabric shop, with a great selection of cottons.  I’m going to have to go home and sew fast and furious to use up some of the fabrics I bought.

I have become intrigued with journal quilting.  I’ve done it before and found comfort in putting down my story in quilts.  I’ve decided to try my hand at it again and am starting a journal quilt that I hope to add to every week.  I’m keeping the blocks down to a 6″ size and making one a week.

When 4 are completed I will put them together as a monthly story, then as a story for the year.  Since I sarted my chemo this week, my first block is of course a chemo cocktail.  I dont know if I will be able to post weekly, this week has not been a good one for me, but whenever I can, I will try to show the blocks.
A happy holiday to one and all.

Sorry for not posting in so long.  Life has intruded.  My grandson and great nephew both had bar mitzvahs and a grand-daughter became engaged.  I get to get busy and make another chupa quilt.  This one I’ve been working on for 5 years thinking I had plenty of time.  Not any more!  I will also be starting another round of chemo and would appreciate it if you all keep me in mind in your prayers.

Sorry for the delay, and it’s been a while, but here are more stuff from our Vermont Quilting Trip!

Our group in Woodstock where we all picked up some very cool fabric.

I just came back from a great two day trip to the Shelbourne Museum in Vermont.  We went for and saw the famous Dear Jane quilt and were suitably impressed with it in person.

Of course, what is a quilt trip without going to quilt shops. We went to Woodstock Quilt Supply and had Bob all to ourselves. It’s a very modern quilt shop with many Kaffe Fasset and Kona Bay fabrics. Tala Quilt Shop in Vermont was another stop and how different this was! Very quaint with overflowing shelves of Reproduction fabrics, Moda and Batiks.

Vermont has a thing about Mooses and they were everywhere. Unfortunately  we couldn’t stop to take pictures of all of them, but this is me with the “Covered Bridge Moose”.

I absolutely love Laura Wasilowski’s song about the tomb of the unkown sewer, so I took a picture of one in front of the Shelbourne museum.

At the store, we started a Dear Jane class.  Although we had only six people register, we all became dedicated Janiacs, and we are enjoying every minute of it.  I, in particular, took off with those little cute blocks and I am making, or trying to make, two of each in different colorways to make them the same but to look different.

I’ve made quite a few but not nearly all of them.  Anywho, we dicided that it would be fun for all of us to go to the Shelburne Museum to see Dear Jane up close and personal.  A two day trip to Vermont in the Fall would be fun anyway.

Tell you all a bout it when I get back!

I’ve been very busy since I came home from Cleveland; cleaning my sewing room.  I had emptied the whole room out, because I got new shelving, and now I have to put everything back together again.  I’m not having much fun because I would rather be quilting but I like revisiting old friends.

How do you organize your room?

How small a piece of fabric do you keep?

I’m afraid to throw anything out; maybe it will be the one I’ll need for some project.  My not finished pile is huge.  When the room was a mess I didn’t see how many I had,  now I’m amazed.

My daughter, Blima, visited her sister in Argentina and took some pictures of the quilts I made for them.  I will post them this week.

I haven’t written much in the blog but have a few words tonight.  I’m on vacation in Cleveland and there isn’t much to do, although visiting with my daughter, son-in-law and new baby, tully, is a lot.  I carefully packed my one carry on to include my “Dear Jane” project to work on here but to my utter disappointment, I found out I only took the finished blocks with me, not the ones I was going to work on.  Oh well, haven’t done any work this whole summer!

I feel I could pat myself on the back.  A customer just came in to my store and asked where the Holocaust Quilt was.  She came in especially to take a picture of it because she said it so much touched a cord in her heart.  How’d that make me feel?  Great!  Only problem is, I gained too much weight to reach my back!

Somebody, who will remain anonymous, sent me this wonderful letter.

“This may not quite qualify as ‘quiltresting’ or as material you would want to share with your readership, but I MUST share it with you!

I just heard about you, ironically, (or perphaps not) from my work colleague. He just called me and we were talking about the fact that my youngest daughter will be leaving for seminary soon and we will be “empty-nesters”. I told him I have taken an interest in quilting and hope that this will help keep me busy while I’m missing my baby!! Who would have guessed that he would be a source for quilting information!! He told me his brother-in-law’s mother (ME!) has a quilt shop in Brooklyn, a website, etc., and he told me about the Holocaust Quilt!! Before I hung up the phone I found the website, the blogs, etc. and I was THRILLED!!

I am the daughter of a Holocaust Survivor (I created a website that you may like to have a look at: http://www.jewsoflatvia.com) and was very interested in seeing the quilt for so many reasons. My mother is an avid quilter who is ALWAYS quilting or crocheting blankets for the Linus Project. I, on the other hand, am a complete novice but have discovered crazy quilts and really want to get started with a sampler.  I finally found the pictures of your Holocaust Quilt by scrolling down in your blog and I was totally blown away. It is the most moving and soul-stirring quilt I have ever seen. Absolutely amazing.

So funny and amazingly wonderful how by mentioning a little something to him (which, by the way, while I was saying it I was thinking – now why would he be at all interested in hearing about my foray into quilting!) could lead me to this treasure trove!

As an aside, my older daughter lives in Washington Heights and I already told her about your store. She said she has a cousin (a wonderful artist) and aunt (from her husband’s side) who were interested in learning quilting, so I will definitely send them to your store! I think they live in Queens, but I will definitely pass on the info.

You are a real inspiration and your work is incredible!! Thank you for sharing it with the world!! Absolutely beautiful!”

My favorite new product is “Quilter’s Home” which is a really fun magazine geared for quilters but not, necessarily, only patterns.  I read it from cover to cover. try it and get addicted just like me!

Here is a better picture of my daughter’s chupa that I made.

CHUPPAH QUILT

CHUPPAH QUILT

Hi.  I haven’t written much in too long, sorry.

I have been busy trying to work on a lap quilt for my daughter.  She said that her house feels too dark and depressing (this after a trip to sunny Florida) because she has decorated in dark colors.  I used the ricky tims kaleidescope method and made her the begining of the quilt.  I really enjoy this pattern and have used it for my newly married daughter’s chupa [wedding canopy].  I got stuck when I had to do the borders, but I’ve solved this lingering problem and hope to work on it this week.  Going to post a picture when im finished, but here is the center:

I know it’s been a while since I posted.  I’ve been crazy busy but we just finished loading on a whole new batch of quilting fabrics on our site.  Enjoy and tell a friend!

Here is the picture of the quilt I created for my daughter’s Chupa.  It was part of the “ceiling” of the Chupa.

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback on my Holocaust Quilt.   Thank you.  It’s a very precious project to me.

Tools that I haven’t mentioned because you all knew about them and I think are great:

Iron Safe: Our best on-line seller, covers the sole plate of the iron with a Teflon cover that makes it safe to iron on anything without the shine or scorch.

Tailor Tacker is a neat little gadget that is used in dressmaking but works just as well in quilting to accurately mark your quarter seam corners.

120 Inch Tape Measures are simply great for measuring larger quilts accurately.  When I was trying to measure the chupa quilt I had to keep on flipping my 60″ and coming up with different numbers.  I now have a 120″.

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.

The quilt represents my family’s struggle and triumph. The back of the quilt shows the darkness, on the bottom, with the names of those who were killed and then it blends to the light, on top, with the names who survived, and their children, grand-children and great grand-children.

All the live ballots, absentee ballots, oversea ballots, hanging chad ballots and all other ballots have been counted and we have a winner to the 2009 Challenge Quilt Contest!

“I lived in lower Manhattan when I first came to NY.  I quilted the most travelled route I took in those days between the Lower East Side, where I lived, and the World Trade Center where I worked.  (Ii never took the bus).”

“New York Mosaic” by Susan
“The first thing that struck me when I moved to NY from the Midwest, almost 30 years ago, was the non-stop motion everywhere, the lack of patience and the need for everyone behind me to be somewhere else five minutes ago, if not esterday.  To me, NY is a true mosaic, not a melting pot, with each person a unique part of the whole.  This quilt is based on the subway tile station mosaic motifs, trying to incorporate motion, people, landmarks, traffic and some of the many things NY is know for: finance, communication, entertainment, food, etc.”

“I employed a variation of the log cabin block.  My husband and I enjoy traveling to our favorite spots in the 5 boroughs by subway.  “All On Time” was sewn in honor of an artist who was forced by the Great Depression to give up his scholorship to Pratt Institute to work as a NYC motorman. He later came out of retirement to work at a menial job to pay for the tuition of his daughter as a dance major in NYU so that she could fullfill her dream.”

“A Wild Ride on the Subway” By Ellen

“‘ A Wild Ride on the Subway’ fits with the theme of transportation that I have been working on.  From boats to taxis to Volkswagons, getting around NYC can be an adventure!  Born and raised in Brooklyn New York, I have been painting for over 35 years.  Over the past five years, I have been experimenting with fiber art, finding it to be freeing and fun. where as my paintings are formal, my quilts are whimsical and playful.”

“People on the Moon” By Sarah
“People in NY, with it’s great history and diverse cultures, are all on the moon.  Both residents and tourist alike using different means of travel.  Buses, trains, cars and trucks moving over the grand bridges.  Through tunnels, up and down our streets, sometimes at great speed I might add.  Let us not forget the boats that travel in and out of our vast waterways and harbors. We have it all for people on the moon.”

“Our Day in Central Park” By Perri

“I stared at the challenge fabrics for a long time. Central Park was conveniently in the center of my piece of subway map so it gave me focus, after rejecting the idea of cutting out tiny words from the map and finding fabric to symbolize many NYC destinations.  The quilt became an exercise in fabric scraps and wonder under.”
