    Wow, I'm in awe. That is such a heart warming quilt. I'm not good a putting on pictures but sure enjoy looking at others. I just finished a quilt for veterans. If anyone is interested in making some to give they are so in need. I do it through The Twilight Brigade. It is a group of volenteers that makes sure no veteran dies alone. They have never had a quilt donated to them before I sent mine so if you feel the love try it. Tell Jill Cece sent you. ttbnova@aol.com.

    My daddy who we lost five years ago was a captain of his local fire department for over 30 years. What a glorious quilt!

    Brought tears to my eyes. Firemen and women are so special. Heroes everyday, not everyday heroes. Thanks to them and to you for raising money for them to be able to work more safely.

My Aunt & others met at our church for as many years as I can remember..all their quilts were tied/knotted.Their quilts were beautiful & appreciated, so I did not have a problem tying this one.To me, it feels like love. Real quilting would have been beautiful! I have to work on that. Thanks for your critique.
    For my money you are a true quilter. I'm sorry some else felt your quilt needed something more. I thought it is perfect the way it is. As I look at it the love in the quilt stands out more than anything else.

    What a beautiful job you did and I know it will be greatly appreciated by the person who gets it in the auction. I grew up in Cressona and my father was a member of the local fire companies, so I can appreciate your effort, and know that the fire companies will put the monies to good use.
