On an international quilt mailing list that I belong to, for Jewish quilters, someone brought up filet crochet yesterday. Someone else sent an attachment with a photo of a challah cover she made with filet crochet. That prompted me to dig out my filet crochet challah cover that I made almost 30 years ago. We have several challah covers and sort of rotate using them.
Sometime during the year after we were married, we were visiting friends. I was very attracted to the challah cover that she was using and asked her about it. She said that her mother in law made several of them for the children and there's no pattern for it. After some begging, she allowed me to take it home to copy. I sat and charted the whole thing on graph paper. It is backed with a piece of brown fabric. I don't remember when the wine stains are from and I never tried to get them out. It's probably too late now, they're probably set from being in the drawer for so many years. If I would want to bleach it, I'd have to take off the backing. Too lazy.
(Still no quilting?!?!) (LOL!)
