Another finished quilt!

My friend Kathy has been agonizing over making
this quilt for over a year now!
Her nephew is a fireman and wanted a quilt
made from his t-shirts.
The only problem was that the t-shirts were
pretty much the same and kinda boring.
Kathy makes beautiful quilts....usually made
from batiks and alot of pretty pastel quilts.
This was a very hard quilt for her to make!
All that is left to do now is apply the binding
and sew on the label!

The quilting was inspired by Anne Brights
Men and Boys quilting patterns.
When the man is a fireman you have to quilt a
fire truck on it! I used alot of "FIRE" and some
swirls that could be water or rolled up firehoses.

I've been working on making labels,
so this will accompany the quilt when
I bring it to Kathy at tomorrow night's quilt meeting.
