Hi Quilting Friends,
When my oldest son was a small boy, he just LOVED to see the fire trucks driving through Odessa, Texas, where we lived at that time. Ian called them “frucks”, and we’d pull over to the side of the road and watch as the “fruck” sped past us with sirens blaring and lights flashing. It was all very exciting! There was a fire station on the route that we drove to his preschool, so we saw a LOT of “frucks” while we lived there.
I’d be willing to bet that there are other little boys and girls who get very excited to see “frucks”, even in 2021! We’re happy to introduce our newest quilt design, “My Hero- Firefighters”, to you today!
First, the “frucks”!
The pumper truck arrives at the fire, and the firefighters hook their hose to a hydrant. Now we can get some water on those flames!
The ladder truck makes it easier to enter the burning building, to rescue people and to fight the fire.
The SUV carries special equipment for the firefighters to use while they are fighting the fire.
The Fire Chief arrives in his sedan, assessing the situation and calling for more men and equipment as needed.
And now, the brave firefighters!
Angela uses her ax to gain access to areas where the fire needs to be extinguished. Awesome and amazing!
Hal holds the hose, which is connected to the hydrant. Hooray for H2O!
Lloyd climbs the ladder, looking for people who weren’t able to leave the burning building. Lucky that Lloyd isn’t afraid of heights!
Rebecca helps those who have been rescued to feel relaxed and respected. Right on!
