Challah Cover

A good friend of my daughters' is getting married next month.
My usual gift of a Christmas tree skirt would not be appropriate
as this friend is Jewish.

I found a pattern for a Challah cover and decided this would make a nice gift.

My daughter asked that I make it in the wedding colors and I set to work.

The pattern had more flowers around the letters,
but I liked this simpler look.


I started to hand applique the design,
but realized it would take a while.
I machine appliqued it instead and am
very happy with the results.

The back looks so cool!
I'm going to take this to my daughter this weekend
and she will deliver it to the bride.

Happy Quilting!

Nicely done with the simpler version, having more flowers would detract from the center too much I think. BTW thanks for your comment on my Snowman topper tutorial!
