I had wanted to have this baby quilt finished but…it’s not. The top is done. The batting is pieced. The back is pieced. Hopefully tonight, it will get on the quilt machine.
The quilt is for Brady…the newest member of one of my favorite families. If you look close you can see that the fabric has firemen motifs.
Just as I was piecing the backing for the quilt the pager went off and Brady’s Dad’s volunteer fire department was called out to a fire. A short time later my hubby’s volunteer fire department was called for mutual aide. There was a big fire in their small town and they needed extra help from area fire departments.
As a wife and mother of volunteer firemen, it’s a tense time the whole time the firemen are at a fire. The guys train and train but sometimes training isn’t enough to keep them safe. Thankfully, they all came home safe….the people in the town are safe.
While I tensely waited to hear news from the fire, I sewed and sewed….The baby quilt is completely ready for the machine….and I made LOTS of progress on my crumb blocks. I am thankful for firemen…but I’m also thankful that I have a great hobby like quilting to get me through the tense times.
