I read about The House Quilt Project “Heart of the Home” in the October/November issue of Quilting Arts.
Artist Jaime FingaI has partnered with Furnishing Home, an organization that supplies home furnishings for homes of those who were previously homeless. You can read more about this project on The House Quilt Project website.
The rules are simple. The quilt needs to be 14 x 14 inches and feature a house. For hanging the quilts, they must have can pop tops or rings sewn in the upper corners. And the quilts need to include a label on the back with The House Quilt Project, artist’s name, city, state, year, and Do Not Wash.
I gathered together some of my dyed and printed fabric and started cutting. If you’ve followed my blog over the years, you have seen several of these fabrics in tutorial posts. And here is my finished quilt. I posted about making the kitties here.
That’s it. Pretty simple. It goes in the mail today. I sure hope my little quilt brings some smiles to it’s new owners.
And speaking of kitties, our two have finally bonded. After spending almost two weeks at the vet where they were boarded while we were on vacation, they decided they do like each other. Also while they were there the vets discovered that Ally’s itching was from her ears, so she’s back on ear medication. She’s still itching a bit, but not as bad and she no longer has to wear that wrist band around her neck. It’s been a long road to getting her healthy.
That’s all for now, but I’ve got lots to share soon!
