    This is another quilt find. I work at the animal shelter and people always donate blankets and such, every now and then will get some hand made quilts in.. They say someone has passed and they found these in there home. I cant see letting dogs shred them... Not sure what this pattern is called?

    I think it's called nosegay, but I always thought it should be ice cream cone. Pretty quilt, and you were right to rescue it.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Wow! Score! I think that's called Nosegay or Bridal Bouquet. I call it a lucky find for you!

    Oh goodness, lovely quilt. you could hang it in the animal shelter to brighten it up but no, the dogs won't get to lay on it.

    I can understand your wanting to preserve them-but I have to say I was very moved when we said goodbye to our Genna last year, she was sent over the rainbow bridge while being held and loved on a quilt at the vet's office. Maybe save those quilts after all.. Thank you for caring about them and the lost puppies and kitties

    The quilt was donated to the shelter for the animals, perhaps the donor intended it to be used to comfort an animal. I also have had an animal pass away in my arms wrapped in a quilt that someone donated to the shelter. Of course the animal was wrapped in one of those blue pads used to protect a mattress. Our local shelter also holds garage sales twice a year. Maybe the quilt could be sold and the money donated to the care of the shelter animals. I volunteer at the shelter and it is so sad to see all the animals waiting to be adopted. I have adopted several and would take them all home if I could. Hubby says no more animals!

    I'd go crazy trying to keep my dog and 4 cats off my quilts. I'll put this as kindly as I can - Let the shelter auction it off or have it appraised and pay the shelter a reasonable amount for the quilt.
