The Herd and Hospice Quilt

This is a quick post...just wanted to show you the herd...it's all together and going to the quilter at 8 o'clock tomorrow morning. She was so sweet when I called her and told her how life had gotten in the way...she said..."Don't worry, I'll have it done for you." I'll show it to you one more time after it's quilted and the binding's on...before we give it to the "visiting dogs" people for Christmas. This sure was a fun quilt to do...love Buggy Barn patterns.
And here's the Hospice donation quilt...simple pattern, beautiful fabric (MODA...Heritage... Collection for a Cause) and spectacular quilting...makes for a perfect quilt...the fabric and the quilting do all the work.Can't wait to get the binding on...but it has to wait it's turn. Again, a very big THANK YOU to the quilter that donated her time and skills to quilt this for me...a very special person!
WOW! 3 posts in 3 days! I think that's a record for me! Back to binding...one more side to do tonight.

I thought "The Herd" was for yourself. I like that you chose to just do dogs and not the flowers as the pattern shows.

The Hospice quilt is very soothing! Good choice of pattern and fabrics.

Both quilts are very nice. I'm curious about the Hospice Quilt. My dad was just under Hospice care in CA before passing. Nobody said a word about needing quilts and I'm a quilter. Hospice was absolutely wonderful to my dad and our family. Please tell me more about your donation quilt.
