Shout Out for The House Quilt Project


Would you like to make a patriotic house quilt for this on-going project?

I have been coordinating The House Quilt Project on behalf of Furnishing Hope, a non profit organization that provides the interior decor/furniture for Habitat for Humanity in Orange County, as well as, for the Wounded Warrior Battalion from Orange County to San Diego.  To date, this project has created 60+ house quilts for Furnishing Hope, since September of 2010. 

The Wounded Warrior program is an ongoing project where they furnish four homes a month, sometimes with only a weeks notice.  These are for wounded US Soldiers coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Here is their website
http://www.furnishinghope.org/

I am looking for more people to make house quilts for this organization, so they can have them ready to go at a moments notice.  The art quilts measure 12" wide by 16" high vertical format and each quilt must have a house and an American flag on it.  Two pop tops are sewn on the top back for easy hanging.  More information about placement and the label for the back are on under the "Criteria" tabs on the top tool bar, click here. 


I will post every house quilt that I receive, on the blog.  I would be happy to post your blog and/or website url address on the blog.  Optional - if you would like to write a short note from you as to why it was important for you to get involved in the project.

I would be delighted if you would consider making a house quilt for this project, and make a difference in the life of a US wounded warrior.
