In my last blog, I told you about the raffle quilt I’m making for a local animal shelter as a fundraiser. I promised to show you the finished product, but I’m having so much fun with these blocks that I really wanted to share them with you along the way. So, here are the first few blocks that I’ve made.
Then I decided to make a few with flat roofs and will add cats perched on top like the puppy below.
I wanted to share these few pictures with you…
…and one thought: Just think what an impact quilters could have on homelessness among our furry friends. My last raffle quilt, which I donated to a no-kill shelter in North Carolina, provided a new roof for their facility and helped in the placement of a number of dogs and cats.
This can be done simply by checking with your local rescue facility and see if they would like to conduct a raffle as a fundraiser. Chances are they’ll say yes. It can be done by your whole group or simply by an individual. And as quilters, I can promise you this quilt is great fun to create. Please leave comments and let me know your thoughts and ideas.
And when you’re not quilting or playing with your furry friends, please take a look at my Quilting Cozy series: (Available on Amazon.com – and in book stores nationwide.)
