Throwback Thursday – Journal Quilt Week 8

Week 8 of the Journal Quilt Project fell in mid-July of 2011, in the middle of the Tour de France.  My DH is a serious cyclist with several road bikes (which really has its advantages when it comes to buying new sewing machines.  When I tell him how much a new Bernina will cost his response is, “Is that all??!!”)  We’ve been avidly watching the Tour (and the Spring Classics and some of the Vuelta and Giro) for years and even went to France for the Tour in 2004. (On a cycling trip called “The Mountains of the Tour.”  I learned that descending a mountain on a road bike scares the c-r-a-p out of me.)

Anyway, after many days of watching 4 hours of Tour coverage a day, I was inspired by the Tour to create my own jersey for this week’s journal quilt.  If I was a professional cyclist (ha!), I’d be on Team Bernina Harney & Sons:
