    Suggestions?

    This is the fabric I am using for a quilt for my husband on our anniversary this year (I have been getting complaints that he never gets any of the quilts I make ). I am hoping to do something with a fire dept theme to it, or just fire in general. Any suggestions? I have until July 11th!

    Maybe a tossed nine patch or a rail fence both would look very nice and are quickly made. Both are my "go to" patterns when I need something fast and/or easy.

    When life gives you scraps, make a quilt.

    With the exception of the tan, all the fabrics are darks. Maybe you might try brightening it up a bit with a few more lights and medium value colors; the blue in the truck print for example. There is a flame print out there somewhere also.

    How nice you are to make one for him that will be so personal!
