This is to help out Anjl to feed and support all these horses. We will be making a quilt to help raise funds.
We will be sending either a whole piece of fabric, a horse appliqued block, or a pieced block in your choice of block, but let's keep them all earth tone colors please? It will help make the finished quilt look better. Browns, tans, blacks, grays... And please do not add any embellishments, as they can not be washed when you do.
Please make your top blocks to be 12 & 1/2 inches when finished. This will be a fun and done block, so make sure your block is 12 & 1/2 inches, your batting should be 15 inches, and your backing is 16 & 1/2 inches.
Fun and done means you will take your block, it can be a whole piece of fabric, or a pieced block, and quilt it to the backing fabric, but please don't stitch close to the edge, as when the ladies put the pieces together, the back fabric is wrapped around to the front, for the sashing and binding. So please leave at least an inch from the edge with no stitching on it.

These blocks will be mailed to Anjl by 1 August!

Thanks to all of you for signing up.


Hi Linda, I hope all is well with you and all the 'sisters'!

I have been super busy here at home and not had much time for internet, much less cubits lately I need to start allocating more time to crafting too, or I'll go bananas soon Hubby and I just started 2 new companies...his & hers kinda thing and I've been busy setting those up, plus doing lots of volunteer work.

Which is the reason why I am writing to you. The place I volunteer at is ReHorse Rescue Ranch. You may have seen my many posts on facebook about them Basically, it is a non profit org started 3 yrs ago on Raquel's home/ranch. With all the foreclosures in our area due to the mill shutting down, there were many horses that owners were forced to abandon because they could no longer afford to feed them, or they were forced into an apartment with no room for them, etc.

Raquell has a big ranch, and an even bigger heart she started taking in unwanted horses and finding homes for them. The need was so great that she became a non-profit org and quit her full time job. Now, the need is even more great. Along with her current fosters, last year we took in 10 starving and neglected horses from one owner and we are struggling to keep up with their food/vet bills. Thankfully the news reporters kept us on the front page and we received a lot of attention, which kept the donations poring in. Then 2 weeks ago, Animal control seized another 15 horses from another ranch, we are housing 6 of those horses bringing our total to 48 horses. Even with the news stories, in the last 2 weeks we have only received $150 in donations for these new charges. (Raquel says that doesnt even reimburse the gas it cost us to go get the horses!) All 6 horses are about 300 lbs under weight, and the previous owner was breeding them...2 are carrying foal in this condition!

ReHorse is in desperate needs of $$ to keep up with the food and vet bills. Though there are several groups that are forming to do some fundraising, the $$ still isnt enough to feed all 48 horses. These horses are sooooo sweet! I really enjoy the time I spend cleaning up their pens, brushing them and just scratching them and giving them lots of

So now to my point. I had a brain sprinkle and thought that maybe the Sisters would like to make a quilt and donate it to Rehorse Rescue Ranch http://www.rehorserescue.org/ then we at re-horse can either raffle off the quilt, or offer it as a 'prize' to the largest donor for the month..etc to raise some funds for these sweeties. Can you run this whole thing by the Sisters of the Heart and see if its do-able? I am certain that I can even get the Sisters of the Heart's name in our newspaper out of Sacramento which would also bring their BIG hearts into the public eye to let people know just how wonderful they all are!!

I need to be taken off the list. I regrettably lost this page and forgot I had signed up. Since then I have committed to other projects and now am overwhelmed. I do have a piece of fabric for a panel in the quilt but it is not backed or quilted. It is a picture of horses drinking from a pool of water...perhaps it is wild horses...nice colors too....If anyone can take it and do something with it for this quilt I will mail it to you...just c-mail me.

I see that I am listed as #7 and #14....strange.

I may have missed it, but what was the decision on what type of Batting to use? Don't all the blocks need to be sorta the same thickness, so it is uniform throughout the whole quilt?--- or else some blocks will stick up, and others will lay too flat..? Blinking Jist wonderin'... Rolling my eyes.

Good question. How about if I send everyone the batting, so you all don't have to go out and buy a roll, just for one small piece.
Please send me your address in a C mail, and I will get it out to you.
I have the warm and natural, it is cotton. If some of you have that, then you can use it, otherwise let me know, and I will send you your square.

I searched thru bolts of fabric at Hancock's material store yesterday afternoon, but found nothing... except for 'baby-type' ponies, mixed with puppies & kitties! Hilarious! Later on, I think I'll check JoAnn's & Hobby Lobby, & there's always Walmart (we have 3 stores here now.) However today, I have to concentrate on Cup Blocks! Group hug

I have to go Water all my Plants before I can start doing any sewing... It's not only really warm already, but has been super-windy for weeks, which dries out my plants, esp. potted ones.
Sherri, you've been doing lotsa quilting, so take a well-deserved break! ...just don't forget to pop-in sometimes to say Hi! Group hug

I agree Seray..time for you to take a well deserved break and just have fun watching....maybe taking care of the garden is just the break you need.

An Indian Card Reader once told me I had to commune with the Earth Mother to gain balance...cause I had been only doing what was necessary....not what was fun...getting my hands covered with earth. So maybe this is what you need to do... Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Group hug
