Guess who got the Quilts!

Hi,

I wanted everyone to know that I am the proud owner of the Havanese Rescue Quilt - Antics! I must say that I can't wait to recieve it. For all those attending the NE playdate at Missy's in Sept I will bring the quilt with me. Missy, you can look and touch but you can't keep it, even if Jasper gives huge kisses!

Also, Sharon Martin won the Havanese Forum quilt!

I know that both Sharon and I are so excited, happy, and proud to win these quilts. They are truly beautiful and show the incredible skills of the quilters!

A huge thank you to all the quilters and all the people who donated for the quilt to help out the wonderful Havanese breed!

Marie

Whoopee! Congratulations! How wonderful that you got one of the quilts, and are a Forum member! It is nice that you are willing to let the folks at your next get-together touch and admire it, too, although you aren't sharing, apparently! Ha!

You know you must keep an eye out for Missy. She truly wants that little female Havanese puppy. But, if she can't get that she might try and subsitute it with a beautiful Havanese quilt with lots of wonderful Havanese patches! Missy - just having fun with you! :-)

Both Sharon and I are volunteers for Havanese Rescue so that is really cool too.

Yup-- can't trust me! LOL. Thanks for bringing it to the playdate Marie so we can all drool. I promise to be good. (now not sure I could make that promise if you were bringing that cute little Esme to the playdate.) Congrats on your win-- i can't wait to see it.

Yaaaaaaaay!! I didn't know that the Marie who won the Antics quilt was YOU! How cool is that? Congratulations to you and to Sharon. I am envious, but I also know you ladies will enjoy the quilts for many years to come. Share pictures of yourselves with it when you receive them, o.k.?

Share photos!

These were my first quilt squares ever. I did the Silver Dog with the leaf on his head (completed due to Julie's tutoring and patience) for the Four Seasons Quilt (dedicated to Dorothy Goodale) <any word about Dorothy Goodale and her life at Nationals?>

I did a square at the bottom, second from right, which is Riki jumping through his agility hoop...and my daughter Alana did the Rescue Puppy in the corner.

The nice thing about these quilts is we have some HRI folks who added to the Havanese Forum Quilt, and many forum members who rescued our HRI Quilt by coming through with lots of blocks at the very end.

I was a winner last year of the Havanese Wall Hanging which was donated by Pat Limburgh who did the actual quilting of the HRI Quilt. I was so surprised. It is a treasure in my home.

I understand that the Forum Four Seasons was completely hand done for the actual quilting portion...how I wish I could have seen it in person!

Just know the love and dedication that went into these quilts...all for the dogs.

Julie has been my saving grace and mentor this last year. I couldn't have done it without her support!
