GIfts: Memory Quilts Revealed - Part 2

Saying goodbye to Harley
A few months ago, another pug in our circle  left us suddenly. Harley was another distinguish gentlepug who found his family through rescue.  Along with his fur sisters, Sophie & Dixie,  he made a cross country move and welcomed a furless pup named Effie in the last year.

Harley struggled with several chronic health issues, but his decline was very sudden. We we all shocked by news that he had passed away.

Our group felt his family would be too saddened by a large quilt.  The decision was made instead to present them with a pillow in his honor.  Taking my design cue from his mother's wedding scheme, I created a custom pillow with a favorite photo on the front, and a custom label with all the donors on the back. This allowed a large donation to be made in his honor to his pug rescue group, Kentuckiana Pug Rescue.

And here's how it turned out:

I had the opportunity to hand deliver this gift.   While I wasn't able to smuggle Miss Effie home in my purse as hoped, I enjoyed meeting her in person!

Effie:   Wanna play Sophie?
Sophie: NO!
