I made my first foray into challah covers in Fall 2005. At the annual Palo Alto L'Chaim festival, I saw several people selling challah covers for a lot of money, and I thought if I could make quilts, I could make challah covers. Here is one of my early efforts.
The challah cover above was an experiment with blues and with wavy stitching along the edges. The backing is one of my favorite pieces of fabric from the second quilt I ever made. It was a wedding gift for Yona and Tzvi in January 2006.
