September Family Collages – #2

I did do my weekly quilt project for the month of Spetember, just did not post them due to traveling. Here is week 2:
This quilt represents my 3 grandfathers who were in WWII. (My grandmother on my mother’s side remarried.) On each of the photos was written a little note, which I turned into applique-ed phrases. I beaded and trimmed the piece but had little else to put on it until I went to the Queen’s Ink in Maryland, and found a pack of gears by Tim Holtz’s Idea-ology line, called Sprocket Gears. It was just the righ “manly” touch for the work, and could be easily sewn on.
