Wheelie Wednesday - Airedale Alphabet Quilt

Hi everyone. It's me, Autumn.

This year, for the first time, the Airedale Quilting Bee is offering the individual block patterns for the main 2010 quilt, "A is For Airedale." You can buy individual blocks for $3 each, or the entire 25-block set for $30. The patterns can be used for many things beyond a quilt or pillow - create a stencil, wood silhouettes, appliqué patches - let your imagination run wild!

The purchase of a block -- or the whole set -- is important. This pattern sale is the first stitch in the safety net that extends to Airedale Rescue groups nationwide. The pattern sales will help defray the costs of the quilting bee fundraiser, whose sole purpose is to help fund National Airedale Rescue. Each purchase helps to ensure the funding needed so the Bee can continue to create these beautiful quilts thus providing much needed support for Airedale Rescue.

This link will take you to the page with all of the details. 
This past winter, mom spruced up our downstairs bathroom by repainting and restenciling ! Guess where mom got the patterns?

She used these Airedale quilt patterns - this stencil just happens to be the pattern for letter T for TuckbuttRun. 

 And this is the "P" pattern for Playbows. 
Mom has future plans to spell out our names and make a quilted table runner and she would love to do a small wall hanging too.  The ideas are endless!

Today is the birthday of Maggie and Mitch's very good friend, Putter!
Happy 7th birthday, Putter! We hope you have a wonderful day!

See you all next Wednesday!

Awe inspiring! Can't wait to see the table runner, and when she spells out your names.

Do you think if we just changed the colors that people would think those are Wirey Guys? People always ask if I am an airedale!

What a great idea. Our Mom wants to paint some Porties on the stairway. It's sort of hard to find patterns for Porties so she has to make her own.

Hi Maggie and Mitch,
Tell Mom that I love her sprucing up. So pretty.
Those pictures of Bambi are old ones b/c she will not let me take a pic of her. Every time I get the camera she hides!!!
I use to sew and quilt a lot but now that Alzheimer has started I can't remember how to sew!!!!
