A Lovely Year of Finishes July Goal

Well, hope I can up my average from 50% to 66.6% by getting this project done.


I actually did do some work on it just before we left Florida in April, but it has sat, untouched since we got back home.  This is a pattern I picked up at the Sarasota Quilt Guild Show in Spring 2013.  The pattern comes with the photo transfer ready to be applied to fabric.  I intend to make it for my huband's garage.  It is a wallhanging, and has some cute gears to appliqué on the quiltlet.

Yep, appliqué.  And we all know that I still have not finished the appliqué round of my Self-directed Round Robin.  My Self is not bitchy enough, clearly, LOL!  I considered (for a nanosecond) having the round robin as my July finish; it will have to be the finish for August as the show is September if I want it to be part of the display, and I do!

I found the gears green backing at Rainbow's End in Dunedin, and I bought more than I need, so he might one day get his very own quilt...

Linking up with Melissa's (Sew BitterSweet Designs) A Lovely Year of Finishes, as well as Lee's (Freshly Pieced) WIP Wednesday.

I love gears. I'm looking for a gear project of my own. Bike gears in my case. I can't wait ti see your finish.

Maybe doing the applique for this one will get you in applique gear for the round robin? This looks like a fun project.

I love the Gear fabric. Our eldest son turns 40 next year....Yikes!....and I want to make him a quilt. He loves cars and weather, so will soon have to shop.
