    Hello All
    I have finally finished the top I designed for a friend of mine who is a volunteer firefighter. He has been for over 20 years so I hope he will like this when done. The middle says "I fight what you fear"
    The pictures are not the best as the top is 72x90 or so (he is 6'4" tall lol) The blank space in the sides and top will be quilted in a firefighter motif.
    Do you think he will like it?
    Hugs
    April

    Thank you very much. The center will have firehoses, fire hydrants and a flame mix. The sides will have the silhouette of a firefighter down them.

    Oh April, that is great! How could he not love it!!! So fitting for a firefighter! Are you doing the quilting yourself or sending it out?

    By the way, thinking good thoughts about your DD - hope she's feeling better! I know her MRI is in two days...so I'll keep sending out good wishes to you and her.

    Love,
    Esq
