I hope this is the right place for this kind of thing. This is my first time here on this board and took a look at the little pictures and you guys are just incredible. All true works of art therefore I'm hesitant to post here but here goes.
A friend of mine asked me to make her something to cover her "Shabbat hot plate". Short explanation. On the Sabbath she doesn't cook. She prepares the Saturday lunch on Friday afternoon and puts it on a hot plate called a Shabbat platter and it cooks for around 24 hours. The meal is traditionally beans, meat, wheat, chick peas. Basically a very filling stew. I was planning to make myself one but got sidetracked by other projects. This is the first time I've done applique...what a nightmare. That was hard!!! But here are the fruits of my labors. My friend promised me action pictures next week.
It is two pieces of rust colored fabric on that a woven polished cotton with Good Sabbath in Hebrew.
Here is the "stencils" I made from fonts from the computer. Behind are the little plastic baskets of fabric that I chose from.
It has the quilt filling inside. Another adventure in sewing. I've learned alot from this project.
Thank you for looking.
