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?
