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

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!
