Fearless Five Quilt- SURPRISES

 Not everyone in Blogville is aware of this, but WHN was commissioned by several residents to make gifts for the family to be included with the quilt.  The Ladies of Leisure, our beloved Chihuahua Mafia, Coco Bean, Lady Godiva and Truffle, were the first to commission such a surprise.  Coco Bean donated a beautiful chenille blanket that would not have done well as a quilt square, so a pillow for Sandra was made, using Fearless Five fabric!  Bert the Dog also donated two of his Rescue Dog harnesses, but the fabric was more suitable for a pillow for Baby Josh, and voila- using matching fabric that Tiger and his lady Mona had in harnesses and a dress, the Baby Josh pillow was created!  The Trubblesome Trio sent a silky fabric with US flags on it, from the UK, and asked that bandannas for Brinks and Bella be made, and they were!  Remember the red and white heart fabrics that WHN used?  Well, since there was no room in the quilt itself, she made a prayer shawl for Sandra, blocked in the same red used for the bandannas.  Finally, using fabric donated by the Furst Mom of BLogville, and of course for which WHN did not take a photo, a prayer shawl was made for Grammish, who is Sandra's Mom and with whom Shelby slept at night.AS WHN and Sandra are both Catholic, both prayer shawls were blessed at her parish and are now with the Fearless Five family.  In fact, all of these gifts were shipped out while our WFQ, Cynthia, was busy quilting the Fearless Five quilt and were held by Sarah, Mona and Weenie's Mom until the quilt was finished and arrived safely.  These surprises were opened at the same time as the quilt itself.  FINALLY, since WHN had an extra block of the Fearless Five from the quilt, at the suggestion of our WFQ, a baby quilt for Josh was made- also using fabric leftover from the Ruby and Penny quilt that The Mayor sleeps on each night!
