    This is a wall hanging that I did for my wonderful husband. He is a power lineman and I just wanted to show him how much I appreciate him for everything he does for his family.

    Terrific idea and completed quilt. As a power company brat and former employee myself, this is great!!

    A lineman has a very dangerous job. Early elementary grade children are especially receptive to safety talks/ demos from linemen decked out in their gear. :-)

    I didn't have a pattern. I found a picture of a lineman and used an overhead projector to do the outline, then used it to blow up the image on a piece of poster board.

    Wow!
    You could do that for a policeman, or Fireman, and auction it off for one of their fundraisers.
    Very nice silouetting there
