House Quilt


Here's my second quilt for the do.Good Stitches charity quilting bee.  I can brag just a teeny-tiny bit about this quilt, cause most of the blocks were made by all the other talented quilters in my group.

I think the best part of this quilt was opening up all the packages as they arrived and finding all these cute blocks.  Everyone put so much effort into these little houses, and some small child is going to love this quilt!

So thank you to all my fellow quilters!  You did a great job.




And the fun doesn't end on the front!  This quilt is packed full of action! I'm hoping to send this quilt to a charity that is donating quilts to people affected in the Slave Lake fire.  This city is only a few hours away from where I live, so I was happy to hear there is a charity set up to give quilts to these folks who have lost their homes.  


And just a peek at my cutting table and design wall to show you that things are brewing...  although I can't do any more cutting till I clean up!

  10. Well gosh ~ how cute is that house quilt? It's so cute! Love your colors and I love your 16 patches you've got on your design wall.

    I have to tell you that I was so inspired by your basket quilt that I had to immediately start making my own. I just gave it to my quilter a couple of days ago. Should be done soon. I'll send you pictures. Thanks for inspiring me.

  14. I have seen some charity quilts in the past. They are functional but, well, what can I say..... some have not been very attractive. But this one! Wow! It is an eyestopper! I think that someone in Slave Lake will be overwhelmed with the beauty.
    Thanks for giving the 'best' to others!
    Looking forward to seeing the next project. You continue to inspire :)
