    2014 Firemans Benefit Auction Quilt

    Taken from Eleanor Burns Quick Trip Pattern, The 2014 Firemans Quilt is named : A Walk around the Fire House.
    This is lap size 50"x65". On the back are a pair of boots-to walk around the Fire House!. & a quilt label. Also a 14"x20" pillow. I live in a small town area where all firemen are volunteers.

    The pattern and colors are so appropriate for a firefighter. I hope you raise a lot of money to support your everyday heroes.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Very nice indeed. Love the colours and the boots! Our local firemen are also volunteers and are greatly appreciated. They can make the difference between life and death in small communities. I hope your quilt raises lots of funds for your department.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I love your quilt!! My Dad was a fireman in NYC many years ago. He retired as battalion chief. We grew up in a small town in upstate NY and we had volunteer fire departments in all of the towns. Thank you for sharing your quilt. Love the boots!!

    This is a striking, delightful quilt! Great job. Love the boots on the back and the checkered backing. It all works together so well!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
