Quilts, Quilts, Everywhere!

Suddenly, there are three quilts in my life...................

This is the memory quilt I am working on for my Dad. I am going to Arkansas on Wednesday (to see him for his 81st birthday) and I am wishing I had started this a month ago so that I could give it to him then. The center blocks are all assembled. I am waiting on fabric to come in the mail to do the photo transfer blocks - so far I have just printed them on the photo transfer paper. There is also a person or two missing that I would like to include. I have a dark purple for an inner border and the binding but not sewing it on until the other fabrics arrive just in case I change my mind.;)

This is one of two quilts that Ratbone Rescuesis auctioning off this year. They received enough blocks to make two quilts! This one has the four blocks I made. To see more photos or learn more about the raffle, click HERE. I am a volunteer for Ratbone and I got my Eddie through the organization.

And finally, I bought raffle tickets for the quilt shown above. It is from the web page of Rat Terrier ResQ. It is a beautiful quilt and has photos of a couple of my friend's dogs. If I were to win it (I never win anything except jury duty) I believe I would give it to that friend. To learn more about this raffle, click HERE.

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
