Honoring a fireman!
Traditionally, barn quilts are created using existing quilt block patterns going back many generations. Those patterns may have slight changes in their design, but, you can easily recognize the basic pattern.
On occasion new patterns are created. They may represent a family heritage and, in some cases, they may honor career's of family members. This barn quilt was created by my friend Linda M, from Guyton, GA. She wanted to make this to honor her son-in-law who is a member of the Effingham County, GA Fire Rescue. Linda successfully recreated the colors of the patch that she used as a reference guide to make the barn quilt.
I applaud Linda for her originality and creativity in making a barn quilt that is personal to her.
