Life is good and it's about to get better! This year there are two beautiful quilts created and donated to help support the Havanese in Havanese Rescue Inc. The drawings will be held at the 2009 HCA National Specialty in Lombard, IL.
The Havanese Antics quilt was made by the HRI quilt group. The Four Seasons quilt was made by the Forum quilters. Both quilts will take your breath away.
Regardless of which quilt you designate on your ticket as your choice, all funds benefit the dogs of Havanese Rescue Inc.
This week's blocks are from the Havanese Antics quilt. Many people came together to create these blocks, inspired by their love of Havanese and a desire to change for the better the lives of Havanese in rescue.
Did What? by Sandi Austin
If you own a Havanese you have had your trash can emptied and shredded. Smarty, at two years old, still cannot resist the temptation and when she is caught, the look of innocence is so cute that punishment would be a waste on such a little angel.
(As an aside, HRI wants to thank Sandi for fostering and now adopting one of our recent HRI rescue dogs! Maybe we'll see both Havanese girls in next year's block!)
Rain-Rain Go Away by Liz Barry
From the lightening in the sky to the fringe on the rug, Liz's block portrays a rainy day. Her girls just don't like the rain. They are pleading for the rain to go away, so they can go out to play.
RLH by Cheryl Grant
Two happy Havanese are enjoying their favorite game, Run Like Heck, along the beach. You can almost feel the wind in your own hair just looking at this block.
Don't Eat the Flowers by Judy Atchison
Judy's Havanese Coco loves flowers. On every walk, Coco manages to find a flower bed in which to frolic. (Coco wants to assure us she was picking this flower for her "mom," not eating it.)
