Several months ago, I had purchased a TON of firefighter material. My thoughts were that I would make Chris a quilt to take to the station for him to use instead of the blanket that he has. I had all the squares cut and everything... and then nothing. Life just gets a little crazy with a toddler running around (not to mention he loves to play with the sewing machine) so last week when I was straightening up the basement and I saw all the squares, I thought "oh, I should totally make that quilt for Chris' birthday!" (Which was on the 20th and I had great plans to take cute pics of Landry to post telling him happy birthday, but the rash kinda spoiled that one) So I pinned and sewed and pinned and sewed (and pinned and sewed...repeat) I had the entire front done and the back done I just needed to complete it. Then my child came down with his reptile rash. So the quilt was put on hold. Yesterday, I was so tired of looking at the 2 seperate pieces, I decided to stay up until I was finished!! Needless to say, Chris got to take it to work today!
It measures 5' by 8' - I never could get it to take a decent picture- also remember this is at 11:45 last nite so I was trying to be quiet!
This is the back, I PROMISE it's not this wrinkled in real life. I was to tired to straighten it all out for a picture though.
I really hope he enjoys using it, Landry and I had a good time making it. Even though my fingers and back don't agree!
Happy Late Birthday Big Daddy! We LOVE You!!
Have a great day!
