    My 'Firemans Quilt' brings $525. at auction..

    A local group in my small town called 'Hugs & Kisses' has many affairs to raise money for anyone & everyone who may need help. This auction was to raise money for our local Volunteer Fire Companys.
    I made a small 'quilt' or throw! . I used paper piecing for corner Maltese crosses(the firemans cross), then took pics & made 'crayon quilt' blocks from those pics, outlining everything with embroidery stitches...then just worked around that!! I'm very happy that "I" could donate $525...thru my quilt! There was even a write up in our local paper, calling it the "hot" item amoung all the local fire companys!! cute!

    I loved this, thought it would have brought more money, didn't realize it was a throw...but someone should have paid more. Great job!!!!

    WOW! What a fabulous outcome! Your quilt is lovely! Do you know where it will hang?

    I love the block borders on the top and bottom, very nice.
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.
