The House Quilt Project

A community project - "Welcome Home" The House Quilt Project was started in June of 2010 by working with Furnishing Hope (the company that designs, decorates and furnishes the houses) to make 12Wx16H house quilts for a subdivision of homes for Habitat for Humanity in San Juan Capistrano, CA.  All are original works of art that are unique to the artist who designs and makes them at their own expense.  Pop tops are sewn in the upper corners for easy hanging.  Each artist has their own label on the back that it sewn into place.
