Shiloh Pieced and Present supports animal relocation with quilt blocks

Tonni Shirley, the quilt shop owner of Shiloh Pieced and Present, is sponsoring a community project for Hardin Animal Rescue and Transition Team [HARTT], a non-profit for rescued animals in Tennessee. When I saw Tonni's post on social media, I thought it was a wonderful idea and wanted to contribute.

Shiloh Pieced and Present is collecting 12.5" (12" finished) quilt blocks for a silent auction quilt. The blocks have a focus on dogs and cats. The details and specifications for the blocks—as well as the deadline for submissions—is listed on the shop's FB page.

I made a few blocks about a week ago. But yesterday... I desperately needed some time with the sewing machine so I made four more.

To keep things balanced, two blocks are dog-themed and two are cat-themed.

Cat-themed quilt block. Simple, but effective. Look at those eyes!

My blocks are going in the mail tomorrow. I hope the auction is successful and raises both awareness and funds for the care and shelter of the animals that go through the HARTT organization.
