Firefighter Quilts Have Started

I spent Saturday cutting out quilt kits till I could hardly stand to look at fabric anymore.   I thought I’d have enough fabric for 20 or so but I’m thinking I may not have bought enough for more than half yet.   For those of you just reading my blog I made a commitment to myself to make a quilt for each one of the firefighters and cadets in our city.  Luckily I live in a small town and there are only 30. It will be my 2016/2017 volunteer project.

It’s funny to look at a pattern and think that couldn’t take more than 15-20 minutes to cut that and then realize it took you over an hour.  I’m always amazed though that once cut up you wonder how that little stack took so long.  Here are two I cut out over the weekend. Haven’t made either of these patterns before but I like the overall look of them. 28 more to go.
