New views of Quilts

...bits and pieces, joys and sorrows,stitched together with love.

Two independent groups, "The Havanese Quilters" and "HRI QuiltProject" volunteers
have created two beautiful Havanese themed quilts for 2011 to benefit Havanese Rescue Inc.

The piecing, binding and quilting is complete on both quilts, and clearly demonstrates
that each quilt was "stitched together with love"- for our craft, our breed and our mission - RESCUE.

"Bloomin' Havanese" was intricately "free motion" quilted with a complex and elegant overall floral motif.
"Havanese at Home" was also quilted using the free motion technique,
with many blocks quilted to match their particular theme.
Note the bubbles and ripples on the bathtub block and hearts on the Katie block.

One (or both) of these heirloom quilts can be yours,
but time is running out .

Show your love by supporting Havanese Rescue and the quilt fundraiser . Enter the free drawing now.
Get your tickets by clicking any picture below or visit the HRI Quilt website for more information and pictures.

Montessori Posters

I'd love to make a quilt of the drawings the Montessori kids did for HRI. Did you see them? Alana's grandmother quilted and embroidered Alana's first time she wrote her name and her first drawings, it is a keepsake that is amazing.

check out the new feature on www.havaneserescue.com

Every time you open the HRI
website, a different quilt square will appear in the box on the top of
the right hand column.

Click on the square and "ta-da" - the 2011 Havanese Quilt Project
appears, it's so cool !!! From there you can click on the different
quilt blocks up on the top of that page. The work and love that the
quilters have poured into the Quilts this year is unbelievable. A HUGE
thank you to every one of you involved!
