Lending a Helping Paw - Baby Patches Quilt

As you guys know, we love to help out pals. Mom loves to quilt, so we get mom to donate quilts for whatever fundraiser is going on. We get to help her, especially Parker, then we get our picture in the blog. I guess we aren't all that altruistic are we? MOL!

This fundraiser is for @BabyPatches and her human who co-own It will be auctioned on the blogsite, so you will have to check there. I am not sure when it will go on the block, so I would suggest checking every day!

We think we will name this quilt "Baby Patches and the Butterflies". Appropriate? Mom fell in love with the soothing colors and modern graphic feel of the cotton panel. She is about 1/3 done quilting it, and will probably add beads or other embellishments. The quilt is about 32" x 38". the binding is the darker pink (almost salmon), so should frame the quilt quite nicely. It the winner has a pink allergy, the binding can be changed. MOL!

All materials are 100% cotton (except for beads) and since there isn't fire retardant batting in the quilt, it is not suggested for use as children's bedding.

I hope you noticed that I said it is 1/3 quilted. I promise that you will have the quilt within 4 weeks after the bid is finalized, hopefully less, but when mom gets beading, you never know when she will stop!

Our suggestion is to start bidding at $30 and step back, cuz there are a lot of anipals who want Mom's quilts!
