    You all have probably heard about the fires in Texas. I made this for a volunteer fire department to use as a fundraiser. I actually finished it 9-11-2011. Fitting isn't it? Hope you like it!

    Did you draw the center medallion yourself or did you use a pattern?

    Nice job on the quilt!

    The fireman I spoke to when planning to do this told me to search for maltese crosses. I found several I liked, chose one that did not say copywrited and then used that as a springboard for minimal changes to the design. Then I took it to a copy store and had it blown up. I would have loved to put the fire department's name on it but was afraid it would prevent someone from another dept's participation.

    I love this quilt. My neice and her boyfriend are both volunteer firefighters in Lincoln City, Oregon and I couldn't be prouder of them both.
    She would love this quilt also. Thank you for sharing it with us. I'm sure it will be appreciate by all those who are firefighters.
