All proceeds go to the Irish Setter Club of Western New York Rescue fund.   Photos were donated to do the quilt from the Irish Setter Club of America Members.    Twenty four Photos were picked from the hundreds received *.   This was a difficult task as there were so many beautiful ones to choose from.  The club thanks everyone for their support in submitting them for this wonderful cause

The quilt is 58 1/2" square.  made from quilters cotton (pre-washed), fat (1" or so) polyester batting, broadcloth backing, rayon embroidery thread.  the top is machine pieced and machine embroidered.  the binding is a wrap-around from the backing, hand stitched.  it is tacked (comforter tied) with DMC embroidery thread…over 200 hand tied knots.  it took well over 60 hours to complete.

Many thanks go to Valerie Wroblewski aka "Annie Roo" for all her hard work on this quilt for this wonderful cause…….you are very much appreciated.
