Quilting like the Wind.... and Finished!! (or not) Friday!!

Happy Happy Friday!!!

I'm flashing back a few years.... I found this photo in a box at my parents house, and just grinned...

My Dad started as a volunteer firefighter, and worked up to Chief. There is a Quilting group called Firehouse quilts and I had quilted a BUNCH of the quilts for them.  My Dad asked if they could have some... and some they got!!! 

Firehouse Quilts packages them in ziploc bags so they could be stored in the ambulances, and the kids and I made the delivery. My Mom loved to write so she wrote a story about them for their local paper - and this was the photo she used.... too cute right???

So back to me!! I have been quilting. it's so cool to see all the Variety of quilts that clients make - this one... FOOTBALL!!!  LOVE it!!!

My Clients son wanted some theme quilts for his friends - and one was a Peanuts Quilt... LOVE it!

Last photo ... SPRING has to be coming right? Wednesday was a pretty nice day, until it wasn't - and we got wind and snow and super cold....  this little bloom seems to have made it.... Fingers Crossed!!!

Back to you!!!!  it is Finished ( or not) Friday!!!

Oh, that is the cutest photo of the boys and a quilt at the fire station!

And, my, what a lot of fun quilting you've been doing.

What a wonderful (true) story! Thank you for sharing!

What a fun find at your parents house. Lots of fun quilting going on at your place. Hopefully your now in for the same cool down we're getting this week. I'm really ready for some warm, but windless weather.

How awesome that your dad and his firehouse were able to benefit and receive some quilts - sounds like a family affair with your mother writing about it, too. I hope the buds and blossoms make it through the cold snap and that overall everything keeps trending toward warming up!

Such a great memory and the photo is so wonderful. Generous you to make so many quilts for donation!

That is so nice! What did the firemen do with the quilts? I assume they gave them away, but in what way?
