    Hi. I'm new to this board. have been reading some of the entries and like all the friendliness. I live in the State of Louisiana and I love to quilt. I am also a big animal lover and donate my free time, when not quilting, to the local animal shelter playing with the cats and brushing their coats. They love to be brushed. I just recently completed making 63 mini quilts to put into the cat cages in the cat adoption area at the shelter becuase the cats like to lay on something soft, other than the cold metal or newspaper in the bottom of their cages. The mini quilts helped me to clean out my fabric stash a lot. I attempted to make one quilt for each cage on adoption row for each day of the week. I also wash the dirty quilts for the shelter so that the staff doesn't have to do that. It was a fulfilling project for me. My own 6 spoiled cats were slightly jealous over all the attention given to the making of the mini quilts, but they seem to understand. I wish i had a photo to attach of myself at this time, but that will come later.
