Kennel Quilts for furry friends somewhere, either local, or to send to Louisiana as they are in need after the storms that have rolled through there. That is where my two will go.
In 2016, Island Batik joined forces with an existing group of industry partners and supporters of the Petfinder Foundation to create the Piece for Shelter Pets (PFSP) initiative. The initative supports the Petfinder Foundation, a "Public Charity" that works to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets by assisting animal shelters and rescue groups across North America through financial contributions made possible by the sale of fabric, thread, and other quilting related products. PFSP sponsors include "The Quilt Magazine, Island Batik, Aurfifil Threads, QuiltyBox, Benartex, and Hancocks' of Paducah."
The TQPM Small Kennel Quilt Team is a volunteer organization sponsored by "The Quilt Pattern Magazine (TQPM) that springs into action(or should we say "Stitches" into action?) when disasters strike, sewing small kennel quilts for animals in need while they are separated from their humans and possibly injured. Creating kennel quilts is a way for quilters to help our animal friends in times of need by doing what we love. TQPM Small Kennel Quilt Team supplies kennel quilts to shelters across the United States.
There are guidelines to follow HERE if you would care to make some also. I picked out 3 strips from my Island Batik stash builder packs and got busy making a couple of Kennel quilts that measure 12"x18".
