The Airedale Quilt


A friend let me put up some photos of this year's Airedale quilt. You don't even have to be an Airedale-person to buy raffle tickets for--and to win--this amazing artwork. This year's theme is Fairey Tails. This group effort has been a yearly event for ten years and raises funds for Airedale Rescue. It's not just a fund raiser, though. This project has inspired people to become artists. Miro approves!

    What I meant to say was we bought tickets in the raffle. It's a great cause and the quilt is gorgeous. Did your mum make a patch for the quilt to? We love the block that Maggie & Mitch's mum made.
