I saw saragold's cowboy quilt here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=358783.0 and was in love, and was looking for an excuse to make something like it.

My brother gave me another beautiful nephew January 2011, so I was thrilled to have a reason to make something like saragold's quilt.  Both my brother and his wife are volunteer firefighters, so I went with a firefighter bear for the character, and backed it with rescue vehicle fabric (sadly no photos of the back).

This was my first experience with applique and I learned a ton.  My brother loved it and tells me it's used everyday.

What an adorable nephew you have, and the quilt is awesome!  It will be cherished for years to come.
