Elm Street Quilts January 2019 Link Up

Just a quickie to link up to the Elm Street Quilts January 2019 OMG.  My goal is to put a label on this sweet little quilt that was originally intended for a new adopted granddaughter, but we were blessed with an adorable grandson who has stolen my heart.  It will go to friend's whose daughter is having a little girl.

Elm Street Quilts December Link Up: Christmas Quilts Labelled and Gifted

The Christmas quilts with coordinating pillowcases were well received.  The labels complemented the themes perfectly.

Elm Street Quilts December OMG: Make and Attach Labels for Two Quilts


Two quilts are in need of labels before they can be wrapped and put under the tree.  Betty's Original Embroideries offered two reindeer alphabet fonts that should make perfect labels for these quilts.  Hopefully, I will get to the embroidery this weekend and finish the labels before Christmas.  They are my my Elm Street Quilts OMG for December.

Hanukkah is this week and unfortunately the Hanukkah quilt is still sitting in pieces.  It will be a future goal.  I am not planning on staying up all night to get it done before Hanukkah ends.

Elm Street Quilts November OMG Link Up

I have had bronchitis and have been getting behind in most things except one.  I binged on Christmas movies and finished the binding on my November OMG for Elm Street Quilts.  The original goal was to finish the top but I found time to make a back and quilt it.

Elm Street Quilts November OMG: Order Arrived

My dilemma is resolved.  I didn't really like the red metallic print for the last border with all of the other prints.  A Google search yielded the print in the top left of the photo and then the shop just happened to have another one of the prints in that line that will work for the binding.  The fabrics have arrived and I can proceed with borders and finish piecing the top.

Completing the top is my Elm Street Quilts November OMG.

Elm Street Quilts OMG Finish: First Christmas Quilt

October flew by but my Elm Street Quilts OMG was met.  Except for a special label, the first Christmas quilt is finished.  The candy cane print binding was a near perfect match for the shades of red in the Rudolph layer cake blocks.  I am waiting for the letter "J" in the free Reindeer Peeking font to come up at Betty's Embroidery for the special label.

I am waiting

No Words Can Say Enough


Saddened by the events at Tree of Life in Pittsburgh, I am offering two versions of the Kaddish sung by Cantor Ari Schwarz.



English Translation of the Kaddish

Let the glory of God be extolled, and God’s great name be hallowed in the world whose creation God willed. May God rule in our own day, in our own lives, and in the life of all Israel, and let us say: Amen.

Let God’s great name be blessed for ever and ever.

Beyond all the praises, songs, and adorations that we can utter is the Holy One, the Blessed One, whom yet we glorify, honor, and exalt. And let us say: Amen.

For us and for all Israel, may the blessing of peace and the promise of life come true, and let us say: Amen.

May the One who causes peace to reign in the high heavens, cause peace to reign among us, all Israel, and all the world, and let us say: Amen.

May the Source of peace send peace to all who mourn, and comfort to all who are bereaved. Amen.
