a fireman's quilt



Last month i was asked by my son's friend to make him a quilt with a fireman theme for his firehouse bed. Wow! I couldn't say no, could you?


I found lots of fireman theme fabric at the store. I was surprised there were so many. I finally decided on these two.




Now the challenge was to make a quilt for a man...not a 9 year old boy.


Here's what I came up with. A simple pattern and i hope a color scheme that is not too juvenile for a REAL firehouse quilt.

  1. I think that pattern will look nice with the fabric that you chose for the fireman quilt. I really like the bridge quilt, too!
