Story Submitted by: pabozem

As a quilter for the past twenty something years, I have been involved in a lot of charity quilting. My guild has made quilts for tornado victims, Ronald McDonald House, hospital nurseries, to name a few. I've also become involved in Greyhound adoption, and have had a number of retired racing greyhounds over the years. One of the ways I have been able to help raise money for our local adoption group (Race the Wind Greyhound Adoption of Wichita, Kansas) is to make quilts and wall hangings that have been auctioned off at our annual fund raiser. The quilt for this year has 49 pictures of retired racing greyhounds that have been placed in homes around the country and Canada! I used hand dyed fabrics, and printed the pictures on fabric. It is machine pieced and machine quilted. The person who purchased this quilt lives in Miami and her daughter is involved in a quilt guild there. So, I know it went to a good home!
