St Bernard Rescue Quilt

Allison has a small ranch in Julian. She is passionate about St Bernard Rescue. She has one of her own. Allison decided to make a quilt to raffle and donate the proceeds to the rescue group.. Allison gathered red fabrics of all kinds, flannel, cotton, homesppun and lots of plaid. She also had a small piece of fabric with Saints on it that she fussy cut into blocks. Then using ultrasuede, she appliqued a St. Bernard dog sleeping.

I trapuntod the dog and did a medium stipple throughout the quilt in Superior So Fine black thread.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
