The group met through an online chat to work out all of the details of what, who, how and YAY we are doing this together! It would be a quilt based on improv houses. It was decided that the quilt will be presented to a family that will be moving into a Habitat for Humanity House through South County Habitat for Humanity. Home is where the heart is and where love grows!
My row was a complete accident ( as is most of my improv sewing ). I had the colors and was thinking in one direction but not happy with the results. I was playing with log cabins ( shock and surprise) for a different project and realized the tiny centers looked like windows! From that point on I really like the clean lines of the windows and decided to build on the clean lines by creating a city! After a few building I noticed that there were no people ( you cannot have a city with no people)! Thank you Heather Ross for making tiny people for me to fussy cut in so many projects!
I had also just received fabrics by Luke Haynes for Moda and noticed they were PERFECT for sidewalks and buildings!
The lovely group organized the assembly, quilting, binding and shipping of the quilt to California! I love the quilting community!
Here is the beautiful quilt hanging during Quiltcon 2016! I LOVE IT SO MUCH! Thank you so much to Elaine for taking photos :o)
It is always wonderful to be part of a project that is filled with love for others. Thank you MQG for organizing another fantastic charity event and to the MQG Atlantic Bee for letting me participate in your group :o)
