2017 The Secret Lives of Havis

The 2017 Havanese Rescue Quilt Project quilt is called “The Secret Lives of Havis” quilt. The quilt was inspired by the fact that the HCA Specialty Show is to be held in Asheville North Carolina. We decided to go with a fun theme with fall colors or this year’s quilt. Fabrics were chosen from Moda’s collection called “Grunge Collection”. The quilt colors and design are fun and lively as well as dynamic and classy. The quilt measures 60 inches by 78 inches.
Enjoy our fun, silly theme. Be Happy and enjoy our quilt and video that is made for you!

2015 - Favorite Things

The 2015 Havanese Rescue Quilt is called “These are a Few of My Favorite Things” or “Favorite Things.” The quilt was inspired by the song from “The Sound of Music,” and the quilters decided to depict favorite things in each of the quilt squares. Fabric colors were chosen from Moda’s color wave called “Bobbins and Bits” which includes fun turquoises and corals. Bobbins and bits of fabric are favorite items found in every sewing room, so the collection suited our theme. Each square includes a dog bone, and the dog bone theme is again carried throughout the finishing of the quilt, tying each square together by one of our Hav’s favorite things…dog bones!

The quilt is five feet wide by six feet long and has a quilt sleeve for hanging.

You can see the squares set to the theme song here!

2014 - 10th Anniversary Forever Home Quilt

This gorgeous quilt proudly proclaims, "Forever Home" in a banner across the top of a home, happily inhabited by 32 Havanese! The whimsical depiction of these Havanese is sure to bring a smile to your face.

This is HRI's 10 year anniversary. Since we were founded in 2004, more than 875 Havanese have found forever homes thanks to the hard work of our volunteers. Forever Home is a tribute to all that rescue stands for. The person who wins this gorgeous quilt will be very lucky indeed!

Forever Home was designed by Michelle Burke with the idea that Havanese would be depicted throughout the house making themselves....well....at home! Cheryl Grant was instrumental in choosing fabrics and creating the garden background for the house. She evaluated the blocks and created a house that would logically flow and look like an actual house right down to the garden and driveway.

The Forever Home quilt is 53" wide by 57" tall. You may bid on the quilt during the Annual Auction beginning Saturday, November 8, 2014.
