Habitat for Humanity charity quilt in progress

Our quilting bee decided to make a charity quilt sponsored by our local quilt guild for Habitat for Humanity homes built in our area.  We wanted to make a fun quilt with a beach theme since we live near the beach. Some of the blocks are paper pieced and others are pieced or use machine appliqué. There are 4 members in our group so we all made blocks using several sizes that would make it easier to fit the blocks together into a quilt.  At our next meeting we are going to finalize our quilt designs with all the blocks that we have made. Then we will divide the quilt into 4 sections to be quilted by individual members. At the following meeting we wil put the quilt sections together using “quilt as you go”. Can’t wait to see the finished quilt. The photos in this post are the blocks that I made.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
