    Second Batch Of Donated Quilts/Blankets Sent Away To Animal Shelter

    Here are some donated quilts/blankets finished and now at my local municipal large in size animal shelter. I am working on another batch for next month. After that, I will break for the hot summers that are here and resume in October or November.

    My Leo came from a rescue group so I know how welcome these blankies will be. I recently found a neat pattern for a dog toy made from strips of fleece. I think I'll call the local shelter & see if they'd like some. Thanks for sharing!

    Can you share the dog toy pattern without violating copyrights? Thanks.

    How nice of you to donate to the shelter. I know the animals appreciate their soft beds.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
