The pattern reminds me of a business building stairwell. Not that a stairwell inspired me though. My friend, Dan, is a firefighter. Every year he participates in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb which is a fundraiser for the Lymphoma Leukemia Society. In 2010 he participated in honor of my mother (and her photo in his helmet) who had been diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. And every year he climbs with her photo in his helmet.
It's 69 flights of climbing and these men and women are in full gear...boots, coat, oxygen tank, helmet... In honor of Dan's commitment (and his fellow firefighters) I named this quilt after him.
It's a simple quilt and fun that uses fat quarters. One fat quarter will make one block. 9 fat quarters makes a good sized baby quilt! So many variations and it changes with the fabrics you use.
Hello! I'm a stay-at-home-quilter with two gorgeous girls and handsome Australian husband. Five years ago I started a longarm quilting business that has very quickly grown to include quilt pattern design combined with fundraising for cancer patients. Quilting is exciting! Not just the fabrics and the patterns rather that I've been able to use my craft/hobby/job to reach out and bless others.
