    Inspirational. My husband was a volunteer firefighter for over 35 yrs. Can't do it anymore due to a heart problem. This is awesome. Now you have me thinking I should do one for his last and favorite firehouse. You did a great job.

    This should raise lots of $ ..! Firefighters and families will have a heartfelt response to this quilt. My dd works in a fire dept for the city (she is not a firefighter) and she thinks this is great!

    Your quilt is beautiful It brought tears to my eyes, because we all owe so much to our firefighters. Our little town in CT has an all-volunteer fire department, and they never have trouble raising money in their annual fundraising quest. We know how much they mean to us!

    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. [email protected].

    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.

    Small world isn't it? Do you still have family here? I first practiced on a smaller piece, and will be making that into a wall hanging. It actually got pretty good because of the good advice I received from this site. This year Schuylkill Haven will be hosting the 'Sch County Firemens Convention" & I thought perhaps I would give the wall hanging to them , hopefully to raise a little money to defray costs of hosting that . .

    Yes, my Mom still lives in the house we all grew up in. I get home about four times a year. Miss the region, but have very fond memories of the Firemen's Conventions and the parades. I am sure Sch, Haven would LOVE the wall hanging. That is the wonderful thing of growing up in the Skook, seems the folks really appreciate the effort someone like yourself, has put into a project. Have found that not many regions of the country are quite like our region.
