I told you I’ve been trying to get caught up on my quilt tops that need to get quilted. I took a slight detour and did a couple of quilts for charity. These are both going to be donated to a fundraiser for a local animal rescue organization.
The first top was donated by a blog reader. The second I saw it I knew it was me that was going to finish it. I often support the local animal rescue and this quilt would be a PERFECT quilt for that.
First off I love the colors!!
Second, check out the center of each of these blocks…
There are cute little dogs!!
This one looks almost like a beagle.
What a great bunch of scraps!!
I found a red in my stash to use for the binding…I think it turned out great.
I had a black and white stripe for the backing. It was a thrift store fabric…but perfect don’t you think?
I finished a baby and decided to donate this one too. This one came from the Cresco ladies…
I never know what to donate. I don’t think everyone wants dog and cat things… I’m hoping someone attending will want a cute boy baby quilt.
There is a panel in the middle with a “Why God Made Little Boys” saying.
All around the outside are some great novelty prints that are all boyish.
It is such a cute quilt.
I had some backing leftover from another quilt that I thought would be perfect so I pieced that together and used that. The original fabric I bought at an auction.
I hope these two projects bring a nice monetary donation for the animal rescue.
Thanks so much for the donation of tops. It’s awesome to not have to make a quilt from start to finish yet still be able to donate.
If there are any pet lovers out there who are interested in donating a pet-themed top, I’d be happy to quilt it and donated it to the next fundraiser they have.
