Hog heaven!

No, I'm not talking about little piggies!  I'm talking about the Harley Davidson kind of hog.  I don't ride or drive one, I don't even own one.....but I know several people who do, and they are part of the Christian Motorcycle Association.  My daughter/SIL and my sister/BIL are all involved in this worthy organization.  They have several fundraisers each year and I love their cause.  Transportation for missionaries in their every day lives.  That could mean a bicycle, camel, jeep - whatever will get them from here to there.  I have decided to take on several projects to help them along this year.  I have already told you about the 25 pouches (out of lipstick fabric) that my sister is selling to raise money.  I decided to make a quilt for their big fundraiser in February.

First off, I had to go on line to find 'Harley Davidson' fabric.  Then I shopped for coordinating fabrics in the Harley colors.


I found a FQ of Harley logo fabric on line!  I raw edge appliqued them onto 6 1/2" squares of Kona Cole.


Lots of HST for this pattern.  It is from the Autumn 2014 issue of Quilter's World. "Halloween Dash"

 

The back was fun to piece.  I used a leftover 'Harley' block as my label.







I love the way it came out.  Thank you Mr. Wonderful, for helping with this last shot!

Stats:  was - 59 1/2 x 68
    ended at - 56 x 66 (after washing and drying)

I have been hearing about the Harley quilt, but seeing it in pictures is so much more exciting! The addition of that flame fabric really makes this quilt shine. Love the quilting, Vicki! You did an amazing job with this hog!
