Harley Treads- Charity Quilt finished

The Des Moines Modern Quilt guild finished it's first group quilt for charity in less than 2 months and just in the nick of time, the event is Saturday, July 13.  We made this quilt for A Heavenly Ride For Hospice.  The first post about this quilt can be found here.  Since it was a motorcycle ride for charity we went with Harley Davidson colors, black and orange.
 The chevron pattern reminded us of tire tread, so it all seemed to fit together.

It was quilted by Beth Hromyak in a flame pattern.

Sherry Von Fumetti made the label and the backing featuring the pieced initials HD.

The binding was the same black and white print that really reminds me of lug nuts.
I hope this quilt raises a lot of money for Hospice and finds a good home with someone who loves it.
