    Default firetrucks, dalmations and cats from Laura44

    I finished up this cute top from Laura44 today . Just did some straight line zigzag because the pattern is so cute it didn't need a lot of fussy quilting. I looked at the fabric and thought dogs and picked out cats for the back but as I was sewing I noticed it was a fireman theme. Sorry about thatClick image for larger version.

    Sew cute. When I was a kid, our local fire station was a great place to hang out. The firemen usually put us to work sweeping out the garage/bay, helping wash the trucks, or some other easy labor. It sure made us kids feel important to be helping out the firemen. They didn't have a dog, but they had several cats that could usually be found lounging either on or under the trucks.

    I can just see this quilt becoming a toddler's lovey and using it till it's loved so hard it's threadbare.

    Fireman used to rescue cats from trees, so all is good with the backing fabric.

    Adorable! The backing actually looks great...I bet most fire stations have a resident cat or two. Really a cute quilt with lots of happy color.
