I am working on a charity quilt. Some time ago Dee Dee a blog reader sent a charity quilt top for me to quilt and then pass along to a worthy charity. The quilt top was really wonderful and I’ve been saving it for a benefit fund raiser.
It just so happens that I follow Dee Dee on Pinterest and see that she is always posting cute little pictures of dachshunds so I took a guess and decided she must be an animal lover. (EDIT**I had two Dee Dee’s mixed up! But I am assured that dachshunds are in the family though)
When the Humane Society that I work with said they were looking for auction donations for their upcoming fund raiser, I immediately thought of her quilt top. I sent an email to her asking for permission to use it for the benefit and I got a yes!! So after I finished up one of my latest deadline quilts, I threw it on the frame and started quilting.
After about four hours at the machine, I had it done. It is such a pretty quilt and I am sure it will do well at the benefit.
Now I need to bind it and label it and the quilt will be all ready for the benefit on Saturday.

What a beautiful quilt!!
Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together? This quilt will be a big hit at the auction!! You and DeeDee are so generous!
Well done, I am so excited to see it go for such a good cause. (FYI, wrong Dee Dee – I don’t have dachunds or Pinterest:) but there are a lot of doxie’s in the extended family:)
I’m the one from MN. I’m just happy this will hopefully help the animals:)
Beautiful. I love the colors.
You do so many wonderful things for charity. Do you need any scraps? I have a ton and I think they multiply during the night. I would love to send you some.
