    Volunteer FireFighters Quilt just finished!!

    A local organization, called Hugs & Kisses, raises money for all sorts of needs. Next month is an auction to help 6 local volunteer fire houses. I designed a quilt to honor them & hopefully raise some good money!
    I used crayon and embroidery on the pictures..The corners are the firemans cross..and a bit of quilting inside is in that same design, along with a loopy? firehose and just rails up the side.. I am fairly new to 'quilting' and actually love the designing a lot more that the quilting!! So, there is 'enough' on here to hold it together, so I guess it's OK.
    Just wanted to share. I've attached pics of the whole quilt, the Firehouses, and 1 close up firehouse.

    Love it. The art work is awesome. Hoping it goes for a lot of dollars.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    WOW That is awesome. It was more than just a thought. That was a labor of love. Your are very talented to be able to do this for the fire departments. Here is hoping that it really brings in a large bid.

    Very nice. It shows your love for the dedication of the volunteer firefighters. Hope you raise lots of $$$$$ from it.
