Quilt Exhibit in Jerusalem

Last Thursday, I went with a local new quilter friend to an exhibit of the Israel Quilters Association taking place now at the Jerusalem Theater.

The theme is "My Color Palette" and it runs until mid June. It is being taken down in the morning of June 15.

Shoshi Mossery took first place with her quilt 'Between the suns',
Rachel Steiner took second place with her quilt 'Circles and colors'
Batia Eichenholz took third place with her quilt 'Falling leaves'.

Does anyone notice that they all have similar color combos? There were two judges. The curator and a non-textile Israeli artist.

I did not enter a quilt into the exhibit, but lots of my friends have quilts there! Here is just a sampling of some that caught my eye.

More tomorrow!




  1. Hi Debbie, It is very interesting that the three winners have the same color scheme. Thanks for sharing the photos. It looks like it was a very nice show.

  2. I agree! If the theme is MY colour palette, why do all use the warm sunny colours? Difficult question but the quilts are all beautiful!

  3. Thanks for sharing the photos. It would be interesting to know what the judges had to say about color and how much the color palette chosen b the quilters figured into their choices.

  4. I love these happy quilts!! Sunshine for this gray and rainy day in Amherst Massachusetts. Wonderful to see what our Israeli colleagues are making. Hilda

  5. Ooooo! Wonderful show! Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more.
