    'Stairway to Airedale Heaven' is from a quilting magazine. I'm sure most of you have seen it. It was originally a wall hanging and called 'Stairway to Cat Heaven'. I enlarged it to a queen size and substituted Airedales for the cats. It was recently raffled off for Texas Airedale Rescue and raised $1,230.00.

    'Hearts & Dales' is from Fons & Porter magazine. It was called 'I Wooly Love Ewe' and featured sheep. Again, I enlarged it to queen size and used my beloved Airedales rather than sheep. I've had it about a year now and I haven't been able to let go of it, yet. I'm sure that I will donate it to Airedale Rescue in the future.

    I do make quilts other than Airedales but they aren't as interesting.

    I love what you did to the Cat quilt!! I have considered doing one with Labradors but probably never will.
    They both look great and congratulations for raising so much money with the quilt!!!

    Those are great. I did one with Dalmatians but never thought of the Stairway quilt pattern. I love them both. You do beautiful work.

    MarthaVA asked: Do you embroider or applique the dogs?
    Aunt Doggie asked: Where did you get the little Airedales to put on the quilt? Is that embroidery?

    The Airedales are raw edge applique. A fellow Airedalian is also an artist. She did coloring book type drawings for me and I was able to make templates. Since Airedales are black and tan, I didn't have to worry much about the color of fabric. I used a permanent maker for the eyes.
