Last two weeks before the Airedale quilt raffle

Below is a picture of the 2011 Airedale Rescue drool-worthy quilt. Today I went to the  Airedale Quilting Bee website to snag some raffle tickets.

The Bee began in 1999, inspired by the success of the fundraising book Houses Full of Laughter (with yrs truly as editor). Since then, clever and talented quilters have worked together every year to make and raffle off a quilt, raising over $125,000 over that time. I hope you'll go here to donate for a chance at this year's quilt and, best of all, to help Airedales in need of forever homes. 

Here's what the site says: "The Airedale Quilting Bee creates beautiful art quilts and then has an on-line fundraising campaign for donations to the Airedale Terrier Club of America's Rescue Committee. This committee oversees all funds donated to rescue and helps regional and state Airedale rescue groups defray the costs of rescuing countless aged, injured, neglected and newborn Airedales Terriers."


Go to the Quilting Bee website for more great photos!
