    Quilts made by our vounteers

    Here are three quilts that were put together for our fundraiser for a Miniature Pincher rescue. Everyone who knows how to sew....(and some who don't : ), sent in quilt squares. Even the non-sewer's, trying for the first time, did a nice job. We don't use a color scheme, so they come in all different colors and designs. It's sometimes difficult to blend the colors with such a variety, to finish the quilt, but I think they turned out pretty cute.

    The two t-shirt quilts were made with t-shirts sent in by our volunteers. So long as there were no tears or stains in the area to be exposed on the quilt, we washed them up and used them.

    I made the Dog Portrait using Batik fabrics. I was going to make a portrait art quilt, but then decided to frame it instead.

    I hope they all show up ok. I don't post photos often.

    They are gorgeous....put together beautifully. Love your portrait, very special. I hope you raise buckets of money for your group. Such a worthy cause (and a beautiful breed).

    I will never forget the one and only mini pincher I ever saw. They are so little and so very fearless!

    I hope your auction quilts do very well to help your cause.

    I had the pleasure of being "staff" to a min pin for 11 years. Even though he has been gone 4 years and we have 5 dogs (not min pins) in our household I still miss him. My hats off to you and all you do

    We adopted our son's 1/2 mini pin, your quilts look just like her. What a handful ! All your quilts turned out good, hope you got lots and lots of money.
