    I got mine from using bed sheets from Walmart. They were on clearence Queen size where only $10. Not sure if they have anymore, but do know they carry the sheets at normal price.

    Hope you can find some.

    IF you ever find any licenced HARLEY DAVIDSON 100% cotton fabric yardage, I hope you will post a link. I have checked for years, and as far as I know there has never been any licenced.

    My parents have alot of official Harley bandanas. They bought them a couple years ago. My dad had this big idea of flea marketing, bought a bunch of stuff and never went to one flea market. They would like to just get their money back on them. They make nice quilts. I have made a couple for friends.

    If anyone is interested pm me.

    I had always been told that H-D would not license any fabric for use by the general public.

    I learned yesterday. Go to the quilting forum's pictures section. The first item is how to post pictures.

    I bought my Harley Fabric @ Wal-Mart in Bastrop, Texas. It was around $5.00 per yard.
    I made some really cute Christmas Stockings from it with a white top and their names done in machine embroidery.
    Were they ever shocked when they got their gifts........Katrina

    Here is my "BIKERS ONLY" T-shirt quilt. I am hoping that I will be able to send this out. It is my first try at sending pictures. Wish me luck.
    This quilt is made mostly from my son's T-shits....but it also has a little girl's Harley purse on it where something is able to be inserted into it. I also cut pockets of some of his shits and placed them on the quilt. I needed a few some spaces so I printed out pictures of my son and his wife on his Harley and some of his cousins on their Harleys......OK, here goes. if this doesn't work, I will keep trying !!!!!!!

    Hi MJ

    I have also made Harley T-shirt quilts for my HOG (Harley Owners Group)chapter and a few commissioned ones. Unfortunately I don't have pictures. I really like how you made the blocks all different sizes and shapes.

    Unlike you I cut every shirt design out on a 12 1/2 square (12" finished) then put sashing between each square that was 2" finished with cornerstones. The cornerstones were T-shirts that only had a small breast/pocket imprint or the ladies shirts which usually only have a small imprint of the dealership on the back. I designed the quilt with 4 blocks across and 5 blocks down. The inner border was also 2" wide and matched the sashing. The outer border was more of the 12" blocks of T-shirts only with no sashing between each block. I used fat bat batting and tied it because I couldn't imagine trying to quilt through those T's and the interfacing you have to put on them to keep them from stretching out of shape.

    I could never find harley fabric either. I think the motor company does not license it out to be sold as fabric by the yard. But motorcycle theme fabric can be found. I have seen tattoos, flames, motorcycles, roadmaps. For my quilt I used fabric that looks like bricks in the sashing because the original factory in Milwaukee is all brick and the color seemed to blend well and not fight with any of the shirt designs.

    My blocks (I believe that there are 53) are anywhere from 4"x4" to the largest one being 16"x16"......My hubby got a posterboard and he cut pieces of paper to size and coordinated the blocks and that is how I got the position of all the blocks. I did the corners with the largest blocks and then started filling in.........it was a challenge ........to say the least.
    I cut all the Harley buttons from my son's shirts and jackets and that is how I joined the top to the backing. Had to do that as there was nowhere that I could purchase Harley buttons....I guess the patent wouldn't allow it.
    You are so right, I could never had quilted through that and the batting.......

    I enjoyed making it for my son but I don't think (no in fact, I know) that I will not make another.
