A very Special Quilt for a Very Special Lady

On the left the large quilt with the theme
 squares and triangles. 
 On the right, the small quilts has information regarding the larger quilt
and the names of all participants.
I had the pleasure to quilt a very unique quilt to hang in the The Beth Hillel Temple.  Judith Warren orchestrated this project and I asked if I could share it with you.  I also asked Judith to write a paragraph for me regarding the project. 

"The Beth Hillel Temple Quilting project began in September of 2011, during an intergenerational retreat of the congregation. Rabbi Dena Feingold and 74 adults and children made squares and triangles that were incorporated into the quilt. The theme of the quilt centered on Jewish community and the natural and spiritual themes discussed at the retreat. All of the children in religious school spent a day creating their contributions to the quilt. Over 14 volunteers from the Temple in Kenosha, Wisconsin, helped to put the quilt together, during quilting sessions at the Temple and in private homes over a ten month period. Quilt organizer Judith Warren then asked Quilts by Barb to finish both quilts, the larger one, and the smaller explanatory quilt which tells the history of the quilt project and names the participants. The quilt was hung in the Temple and dedicated with a beautiful musical ceremony attended by many of the quilters on Sunday, September 9, 2012, almost a year to the date after it was started." 

Thanks, Judith for sharing.
