    Awesome quilt! And yes, it does look like a lot of work, but will likely be very much appreciated. Great job!

    Beautiful work!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Your MC block in this quilt came out perfect so your hard work paid off. Really the first one is the hardest. I used Judy Mathieson's technique for making mine and I didn't find it too terribly bad. It is still my most favorite of quilt block patterns so I will definitely be making more in the future. Great job on your quilt.

    Very beautiful! My husband is a retired firefighter whom worked for 32 years on a paid fire dept. He keeps asking for me to make him a quilt. You just gave me a great idea!

    I'm working on Mariners Compass right now. I hope mine looks as good as yours. It's beautiful. My hubby was also a volunteer firefighter. This just gave me some more ideas. Great work.
