Haireiette's Hats

Our mom's block is being featured on the Airedale quilting bee blog today.  The block she did is called "Haireiette's Hats"


The inspiration came from this photo of our sweet angel Maggie on Nantucket one summer when she was only 2 years old. 
 Mom loved the block so much that she wanted to create one for herself in wool~


Angel Maggie never minded modeling hats for mom♥

 Donating to the quilt will give you the chance to win the main quilt or any of the bonus quilts.   
Two years ago we were the lucky winners!
 This is the beautiful Home At Last quilt ♥

Good luck to anyone who donates to the 2013 Airedale Rescue quilt!


Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly
