Honoring Charlotte's Fallen Firefighter ~ with Cyndy G.

Good morning.  Today I have the honor of sharing my version of the JGW Quilt Patch Minnie.  When I first saw this I thought of the seasonal flags that my mom puts in her yard.  The great thing about these is that you can put any design on the front.  Especially Jodi's designs because they all look a little like a quilt block.

Today I do my project in honor of fallen Pineville firefighter Richard Sheltra.
Yesterday would have been Sheltra’s 21st birthday.  His family delivered cookies to fire stations across Charlotte and I heard on that news the fire stations across the Country and Canada had cookies delivered in his honor to say Thank you for protecting us. 

I used JGW Stars and Stripes Cards for the quilt front.  The paper I used is the new 
Authentique paper collection Honor.  I love this paper.

How cute is the stand?  I had one just like this.  I can't wait to make more quilts.  I plan on making them for all the Holidays.  Thank you for stopping by.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.
