ALYOF December 2014 Goal

My son LOVES firefighters, (and construction vehicles, and trucks, and anything else that moves :)! So 18 months ago - yes 18 months - as in this top has been sitting on a shelf since June 2013 - I finished this beautiful red/black/white fire themed quilt top.

I need to assemble a backing, baste then quilt and bind this quilt - in two weeks!! I pulled a bunch of fabrics, most of them are smaller pieces (less than 1/2 yard) left from piecing the front. It'll be a crazy mis-mash of prints, but that's cool cause he loves crazy (he loves me - right!?!)

My son really wants a new quilt for Christmas!!

And I've barely spent 5 hours on the sewing machine in the last 6 weeks....I really hope I can find the time to get it done!
