A few weeks ago, one of our local deputies was seriously injured in a head-on collision. Our charity group, Firehouse Quilts, was asked to make a comfort quilt for him. We kept a photo journal of it's creation from picking a pattern and fabric to it's presentation to him by his buddies. I wrote an article and put about 15 pics in to help tell the story; I think it's going to be in our printed version of yourhub.com this Thursday.
You can read the whole story online tho . . . just click here. :)
Thanks for letting me share our heart-warming story. We normally give snuggle quilts to our fire departments in Colorado and the firefighters give them to the children they see on their emergency runs. :) If you're interested in seeing more pics and stories of our deliveries, you can go to our website at www.firehousequilts.org .
This is the young deputy and his girlfriend showing off his comfort quilt.
Here's the 4 gals that worked on this project.
