We are getting married in a couple of weeks. (Not that I'm stressed or anything)
My cousin and her husband (Rabbi Ian) are coming all the way from Leeds (yes, in the UK) to Melbourne to celebrate with us (and to perform the ceremony).
As a token of our huge appreciation, I have decided to give them my 'Old Red Barn quilt along' - quilt (nearly finished now) and a matching Challah cover.
Challah is the traditional egg loaf eaten by Jews as part of the Friday night sabbath (Shabbat) meal.
The front has the word "Shabbat" appliqued on it in Hebrew lettering.
A floral quilting pattern...
and a plain cream backing
It measures 16 inches by 21 inches.
I hope they like it.
