A Goal for July

My goal for July for ALYOF is to complete the quilt I worked on last month.  In June I completed the stitching around the appliqued cars, and this month I will complete the quilt.

The quilt is from the book, Growing Up With Quilts, by Mimi Dietrich and Sally Schneider.  This pattern is one of Mimi Dietrich's.  In the corners, there are blocks to represent Stop signs, and then there is a final border of black-and-white 9-Patch blocks.  I have ordered some HotWheels fabric for the backing and have my red binding all ready to go.  

I started this quilt as a donation quilt to SafeHouse, through Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild, but I might be having second thoughts.  It's awfully cute!

Be sure to stop by Sew Bittersweet Designs or Fiber of All Sorts and check out all the other quilters who have stated goals for the month of July.

  1. This is adorable! My "grown" son is a car guy and would love it. It will be fun for whoever receives it. Happy stitching!
