    Volunteer FireFighters Quilt just finished!!

    A local organization, called Hugs & Kisses, raises money for all sorts of needs. Next month is an auction to help 6 local volunteer fire houses. I designed a quilt to honor them & hopefully raise some good money!
    I used crayon and embroidery on the pictures..The corners are the firemans cross..and a bit of quilting inside is in that same design, along with a loopy? firehose and just rails up the side.. I am fairly new to 'quilting' and actually love the designing a lot more that the quilting!! So, there is 'enough' on here to hold it together, so I guess it's OK.
    Just wanted to share. I've attached pics of the whole quilt, the Firehouses, and 1 close up firehouse.

    AWESOME!!!!! That is so wonderful, I'm sure the fire department will love it!!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Love it. The art work is awesome. Hoping it goes for a lot of dollars.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
