Relief for me and for hurricane Harvey victims. I sent out over 20 yards to Betty (see post here) for their Project Linus quilts. My overloaded shelves thank me and I am sure the quilters in the Houston area will be happy to start stitching again.
I was also able to whip up a few more kennel quilts (I forgot to photograph the first 3 before I sent them out) to send down as well.
These little quilts are used to keep cats and small dogs comfortable in their crates as they are rescued. There was a “call for quilts” from The Quilt Pattern Magazine for 12” x 18” kennel quilts. I am sending these to Dallas, but if you go to their website (here) there are a number of places requesting them.
They are super simple to make. They don’t want any added binding (so it doesn’t come loose if they chew on it). I simply pillow cased them and stitched down the edge.
It took more time to choose the fabric than it did to actually make them! I kept finding cute fabrics with dogs and cats. Honestly, did I really think the animals cared what the pattern was?
I am feeling very fortunate. My daughter-in-law’s family on the west coast of Florida, came through hurricane Irma unscathed. I hope to be sending care packages to Florida early next week.
Thanks to quilters everywhere who have been able to help in these recent disasters.
