Just in Case

We don't know how many of you also read Mackie's blog, but we found something of interest there the other day and thought perhaps we would cross post, just in case.

Mackie is a wirey fellow, like me, and like me, he is a rescue. So he and his mom posted this information about an antique quilt raffle that the Fox Terrier network is having! Mackie provided the story, and we got the pictues at the website above.


Mackie says"
"Just want to tell you all about a chance to help Fox Terriers in need all around the country. The Fox Terrier Network (FTN) formed a Crafters' group that is raffling off it’s first quilt to help with its work for Fox Terriers. The first quilt is a beautiful antique quilt. The design is called "Dresden Plate." The squares were found in a chest by the grandaughter of the lady in the picture. The lady lived in Arkansas andit appears the blocks were made from used flour sacks. During the depression, these flour sacks often became first clothing and then quilts. One of our members found the coordinating fabric and put the quilt together, then hand quilted it. The quilt back is muslin. The finished size of this beautiful quilt is approximately 64 inches X 80 inches. This is a great chance to get a brand-new Antique quilt just in time for Christmas! All tickets, which are $5.00 each, can be purchased from the FTN website. Click on the ad and buy your tickets! Once you have paid, your ticket and number (or tickets and numbers!) will be e-mailed to you. Ticket sales close December 10, 2007! Get your tickets now! The drawing will be on December 14, 2007.Thanks for helping FTN help our fox terriers and those that love them. "
