In my November 27, 2017 post, I shared with you “A Quilting Story”. Each year, my guild makes a quilt to give to a family receiving a Habitat for Humanity sponsored home.
On Saturday, we met to compile our latest creation for a soon to be new home owner. We always have so much fun mixing and matching fabrics, houses, trees and community buildings. Below are some highlights:
Isn’t this fabric perfect for a church?
I love the color combinations in this house! I don’t think my husband will agree to an orange house…but maybe a door? Hmmmmm.
Rick rack makes a nice gutter along the roof (sorry, contractor-speak) and how about this cute, color coordinated chimney?
The bark on this tree looks like the real deal!
Party pennants or laundry? I say we go with party pennants!
Another cute gutter along the roof again…AND what’s not to love about lace shutters?
Nice tree in the back yard…I’m thinking lemonade in the shade!
The school looks like it’s ready for business!
Here’s a bird’s eye view of our community in progress. We always add three layers of 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch “bricks” around the outside edge for more color and texture.
After a flurry of sewing and re-arranging, the quilt top is now headed to a long arm for quilting.
I’ll be sure to share the final version with you before this charming quilt finds a forever home!

That looks great
It’s such a fun project to work on!
What a fun little village you are creating!
Yes, lots of ideas, very fun to work with all the ladies in this guild!
I really like this!
Thanks, we always have so much fun! We weren’t sure of the green background, but no matter what we use, it always seems to come together!
Good Morning! This is SO darn cute. How could the new recipient of a Habitat house not fall in love with it?!! I just adore the chevron roof, and the lace added as the gutter and shutters. So sweet. ~smile~ Roseanne
It’s like the icing on the cake to have a quilt to hang on the wall or drape over the couch. Lots of creativity goes into these quilts, such an honor to be a part of this project.
Oh what an amazing quilt being put together – wow! I love the house with the pendant fabric! Okay I love all the houses!
These houses are just so cute in real life! I can’t wait to meet the lucky family!
Cindy, I love all these fun houses! A community of quilters making a community quilt.
Such a perfect gift for someone moving into a new home. It’s awesome you work with Habit for Humanity!
This is really an inspiring project and we always have so much fun!
What a wonderful project. What a lucky family to be loved so well by the community. Habitat is a great organization.
It is a great organization and we enjoy being part of it!
