So… I finished a thing! A thing with cats!
Here’s the whole thing (please forgive the weird bright sunlight and shadows):
Here’s some of the houses in the village (top left):
And here’s the woodsy cabin (lower left):
On the wrong side of the tracks, things are a little shadier:
Good thing there’s a nice cannery on the waterfront to make all the cat food for those cats:
The back is a fun rainbow print, with two of the extra blocks inset. The center of that star is where I wrote the label:
This quilt will ultimately benefit Good Mews Animal Foundation, a non-profit, no-kill cage-free cat shelter that I volunteer for.
How it will benefit it remains to be seen. Several people have asked how they can get a chance to win this quilt, but unfortunately online raffles are illegal for the state of Georgia. I’ve inquired with the fundraising chair for Good Mews if they’d be willing to do an in person raffle (and I could be the go-between and take ticket “orders” for people I know that are out of state), but haven’t heard back from the Chair yet.
In the mean time, I’ve listed it on my etsy store. All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the shelter, and the buyer will be listed in the honorariums in the quarterly shelter newsletter. If there’s no buyer for it on etsy, and the shelter doesn’t want to do a raffle, I’ll donate it for their silent auction in the fall.
BOOM. Found a buyer! My parents are buying the quilt and sending the money directly to the shelter, so the etsy listing has been deactivated. And I get to keep it long enough to show off to Tiny Stitches and the AMQG meeting this weekend. I knew I was raised by the right people…
