Hi Quilting Friends,
Today we’re SEW excited to reveal our new quilt design, a salute to those brave men and women who “Protect and Serve” the community as police officers. We call it “My Hero”!
“My Hero” was fun to create! It features applique, foundation piecing, and precision piecing, all in one adorable toddler-sized quilt. Our quilt looks fresh in a palette of blues, gold, and neutrals, with little pops of color on the applique blocks. Let’s jump right in and see the details.
“My Hero” features five heroic police officers who are here to protect and serve. Every officer needs a police shield, and this shield could be personalized with your hero’s name if desired! Susan decided to use matching embroidery floss for all of the appliques in this project, an excellent choice.
Tom is helping with traffic control today. Please pay attention to his hand signals and his sign; he’s here to keep everyone safe on the roadways.
The lights are flashing! The siren is wailing! Someone needs help, and the police officers are rushing to the scene in their police cruiser. Please pull your vehicle over and let them pass safely.
Sometimes the police officers need a little extra help, and that’s when they call in their K-9 unit. Karen and Cody are here to assist! Even though Cody may look just like an ordinary dog, this highly-trained police officer can help sniff out the perpetrators or help with a rescue. Good boy!
The K-9 unit has a specialized vehicle with a kennel in the back to keep Cody secure while Karen drives them to the crime scene. When they aren’t busy solving crimes, Karen and Cody visit schools to show the children how to stay safe
Officer Dave has stopped for a short coffee break, but his donut has gone missing. Any clues about what might have happened to it? This case is called “The Krispy Kreme Kaper”, and the perpetrator must be apprehended before that donut disappears forever.
The police van is equipped to carry officers, equipment, and supplies to the scene, whether it is for the SWAT team or the Crime Scene Investigators. There’s plenty of space for everything we’ll need to find clues about what happened to Dave’s donut, and close the case on the Krispy Kreme Kaper!
Oh dear! How sad! Mommy has wandered off and gotten lost. Cindy is pretty worried about her, but Officer Linda is here to help! Let’s go and find Mommy together.
Sometimes it helps to have a birds-eye view to find a missing Mommy or a dastardly pilferer of pastries. The police helicopter is handy for search and rescue operations or aerial surveillance. Wouldn’t it be exhilarating to take a ride along with them!
“My Hero” features a roadway around the borders, perfect for playing with a collection of little cars. Vroom, vroom, vroom!
