Every month I sew with 12 amazing women. And every time we get together, we make a quilt to be donated to a local organization. A few month ago, we decided to make a quilt for Habitat for Humanity. A home was to be presented to a family and what new home doesn't need a new quilt!
Before getting together, everyone was told to find a house block pattern and bring scraps in reds, periwinkle, black and lime green. I thought I would share the fun blocks that were made.
The one requirement was that you had to use the circle fabric in the main part of this house somewhere in your block. This little trick gives all the blocks a cohesive look.
This big manor house even came with a door mat. I just had to quilt the word "Welcome" on it.
These four houses were mine. I think it is always fun to adjust the scale on a few blocks to keep it interesting!
A cute house block made from a wonky log cabin. How fun is that!
The details on this house were all carefully folded under and top stitched. More patience than I have!
And this house has a herd of wiener dogs all wearing sweaters running through the second floor. Yikes! I do love the fence and flowers though.
In this house, a pretty bird sit singing in the window.
And every neighborhood needs a chalet. This block was paper-pieced I believe.
Here is one from the mid-century. She used the circle fabric as clouds and shrubs. Brilliant!
Finally these ladies are no longer afraid of mixing prints in their blocks! I have converted almost all of them to scrappy quilters.
It was amazing to me that no one had the same idea for a block.
This one reminds me of the homes built in the seventies. Split level any one?
And here it is in all of its glory! We wish the very best to that family as they build a new life in their new home!
Do you have people you get to sew with? I admit, I look forward to it every month! I am so blessed to call all these generous and talented quilters my friends.
I will also be linking up with Pretty Bobbins, Inspire Us Thursday, TGIFF, Richard and Tanya Quilts, Fabric Frenzy Friday, Crazy Mom Quilts, Sew Can She, and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
