A Quilting Story, 2018 Edition

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!
