What do you make for a grown brother? Undecided  Always a fun question, lucky for me, my brother saw my dad's quilt and wanted one.  Only thing is, he wanted a MANLY quilt.  So, I sought out inspiration and came up with this idea... Cheesy



But how to find large enough flames?  So for months I sought out flames and measured them.  Finally success struck as I was visiting my mom...



I thought, hey this will be a cinch....Never think that to yourself.  Flannel flew...A lot of sewing later, this is the final result.



I left the flames edges raw so that it would fray slightly for a more masculine look.

The ecstatic brother, he never smiles

He said all the volunteer firefighters are going to be jealous. Grin

Comments and Critiques are welcome, I'm still learning.

Holy testosterone! That's a flaming miracle! And VERY well executed, too.


BTW, you could sell that pattern. I'd buy it!

Thanks for the comments everyone!  It is one of my favorites, I'm even thinking of making myself a purse or bag out of this pattern.

Thank you so much, if I ever get it in a shareable form, I'll let you know.

A skirt would be cute, too. Long and full, in organza, for example.
