KruseKats Quilt! Lydia's House

Mom has very strong thoughts about domestic abuse, and volunteered for an interesting organization which provides intermediate housing and life skills training called Lydia's House. She made this quilt for a fund raiser auction. It was appraised for $500 and auctioned for $550.

The quilt is from a Piece O'Cake design published in Better Homes and Gardens quilt magazine many years ago. The houses are all hand appliqueed while the motto in border is machine appliqueed. It hangs in the community room at one of the facilities. Piece O'Cake produces some of her favorite designs. We hope to feature more in the next 2 weeks.


  1. It's beautiful! And for such a great cause too.

  2. This was the first block I learned to do! A house block and it was so much fun! Seeing them all together looks really cool!
