Two more books my Quilting Cozy series will be released by C&T Publishing this month: The Rescue Quilt (Book #7, releasing on December 5th)
and Missing Memories (Book #8, releasing on
December 20th). These second editions will include directions for
making the quilts that appear on the covers.
During the writing of The Rescue
Quilt, Sarah (in the book) and I (in my sewing room) created the quilt described
in this book and pictured below. My quilt was made in memory of my little shih tzu, Mollye, and was donated to the Robeson County Humane Society, a no-kill
shelter in Lumberton, North Carolina, to be used as a fundraiser.
It is my hope that members of
quilt guilds and clubs, or simply quilters who want to get together with their
friends for an old-fashioned sewing bee, will consider making a quilt to
benefit their local animal rescue organizations.
Most of these organizations are
staffed predominantly by volunteers, and we’ve all seen their heart-wrenching
pleas for donations. They need our help. We may not be able to drive a Pup
Mobile like Sophie, or act as midwife for pregnant dogs like Bernice, but this
is one way each of us can make a difference.
Quilters are always searching
for worthwhile charity projects. Who better to help than the creatures who
offer us their unconditional love?

lovers, and everyone else!
