    Check with a local quilt shop or quilt guild to see if someone loves your animals enough to finish them for you, then sell them. You can earn some money for your shelter with those quilts.

    I was told to not finish them unless you have over 40 yr old fabric. Or you wreck the value. Do you know the names? I will check with our only quilt store in town tomorrow, Thank You

    Why are you calling them Amish? They are 1930s fabrics. #10 is called Friendship Block. #9 is Lone Star or Star of Bethlehem. #7 is Four Point Star. All of them have different names and were probably pieced in the 1930s.

    As for getting the most for them? Raffle them. That way you could get hundreds for them versus practically nothing at auction. If you can't raffle them, go international on ebay.
