Quilting Arts Reader Challenge!





The big delivery date finally arrived and my UPS driver brought the heavy box into my studio! So excited to see the contents of this long awaited shipment! 




My friend Libby Williamson was here to help and take photos. One of my neighbors came by to see (painter hand)



Imagine getting 300+ house quilts in the mail. It was totally fun to look at each and every one of them



Here’s Libby holding up a house quilt done in her style and make by our friend Michelle Banton.



I will be posting all the quilts in groupings of nine, like this one on the next post. Thank you Quilting Arts and all of the quilters who made house quilts for the Heart of the Home project. You are making a difference in the lives of these families.

Article and Reader Challenge in Quilting Arts Magazine


I was thrilled to be asked to write an article about artists giving back about The House Quilt Project. Quilt artist and house quilt contributor also wrote an ‘how to’ article. And a Reader Challenge where subscribers can make Heart of the Home House Quilts and send them to the magazine to be considered for publication. All house quilts will be sent to me to give to Furnishing Hope, who will in turn hang them in the houses and apartments that they furnish for women and children transitioning out of homelessness.



The wall quilts measure 14x14 square. 


Here are some of Laurie Russman’s whimsical and colorful wall quilts for the Heart of the Home project




Here’s me delivering house quilts to Furnishing Hope



Reader Challenge for Quilting Arts Magazine! Make a difference in the life of a family getting back on their feet by making a Heart of the Home house quilt. Reader challenge quilts due December 7, 2018. Click on the photo to see it larger for more information.

Heart of the Home



This week I decided to make some house quilts for Heart of the Home. I know that Furnishing Hope is running low on house quilts for this particular project.

It was nice to have some time inbetween deadlines to just sit down and make these for women and children who are transitioning out of homelessness. They are 14” square



I hope they will inspire makers to create one or two for this project.



I love bright colors and these fabrics were perfect for these wall quilts

I will post more next week. Thank you for visiting The House Quilt Project blog!

Shout Out to Quilters!

I have two projects and I am looking for quilters to make 1) 'Heart of the Home' house quilts for women and children who are transitioning out of homelessness. The scoop is in the upper tabs. Click on Heart of the Home 14x14
2) "Patriotic house quilts" for men to receive. 12x16 vertical format. See the upper tabs for the scoop on these wall quilts. For a family to receive one of these handmade quilts - it is the icing on the cake! I hope you will consider making one!
