Charity Pet Quilts
In the few weeks before Gideon's passing, I made quite a few trips back and forth to the vet's office. My vet provides a boarding service for cats and while the cages are spacious and multi-tiered, there wasn't really anything cozy for them to lay on. The vet technician told me that sometimes the owners will bring a small blanket or something, but if they don't they will oftentimes put a towel in the cage for the kitties.
Well, that just wouldn't do in my opinion. Right there in the office, I pulled a tape measure out of my purse and asked if I could take the measurements of the bottom of the cage so that I could make some small pet quilts. I had some larger panels of practice sandwiches just lying around from when I first got my longarm and cutting/binding them would be perfect.
I've gotten 3 done so far and can probably bind 4 others that are smaller but still useful. I'll be able to drop them off when I bring Oliver, Quilt Inspector #3, in for a checkup on his thyroid in just a few weeks.
