We have been creating quite a few t-shirt quilts that are going to be used in Silent Auctions, Online Auctions, Raffles and other fundraisers. We are thrilled to hear the stories that go along with these quilts and I wanted to share a special one today.
Dougbe River School of Liberia
We recently visited my brother and his wife in Cleveland Ohio. We kept hearing about "Dougbe" (Dougbe River Presbyterian School of Liberia). After learning about this special school that they have started for all those kids, we wanted to know how we could help. Their church has an upcoming annual gala to raise funds for the Dougbe River School. We wanted to do something for this mission so we made this Harley Davidson t-shirt quilt for their silent auction. Hopefully, it will bring a nice chunk of change towards their fund raising goal.
Magnolia Texas Fire Department
We've been doing a lot of quilts for firemen lately. This last one we just finished is going to be the Grand Prize at their upcoming event in October. One of the blocks is from one of their jackets and featured in the center of the quilt. What a great prize!
ABC Basset Hound Rescue of New York
ABC Rescue is having their annual online auction in October as well. We are providing 3 t-shirt quilts for this auction.
These quilts are all made up of cute basset hounds.
My favorite shirt is the "Live Long and Slobber" with the dog doing the Vulcan "V". Love it.
