This quilt was made by our local guild and will be donated to the SPCA for a fundraising raffle. Guild members made Pet Themed blocks and it took me a while to figure out how to approach quilting this quilt. I finally decided to write animal quotes in the outer border as it was a solid brown fabric and a great clean slate to write on. Next was the center and felt the best way to blend all the work together on all the blocks was to use invisible thread and a very simple pantograph. I am very pleased with the results as it blended into each block and did not distract from the images.
Writing the quotes was a bit time consuming and that was mainly because I had to turn the quilt on my frame three times. I wanted the writing to be read as you walked around a bed looking at the quilt.
Here are the quotes I picked, hope the guild and SPCA members like them.
-Animals eyes have the power to speak a great language
-The purity of a person's heart can be measured by how they regard animals
-Until one has loved an animal a part of ones soul remains unawakened.
-Animals are such agreeable friends and pass no criticisms.
