Haha. And here I was picturing this scrawny nerdy kid. It's funny how we imagine people when we know nothing about them.

It's way beyond my quilting level, but man, how cool would it be to make a quilt with motorcycles quilted on it!

What about the kind of wavy lines in the border of this quilt:

Bree....I already made him a quilt of a lot of his old Harley t-shirts, it's a king size with 49 shirt squares. Being that they are both in their late 50's early 60's I hope that they like both of the quilts...I don't plan on making another for him, because my 3 sisters will expect one or two also. haha

Teri-if you aren't all sandwiched and ready to quilt you could ALWAYS take some of those rows apart and re-sew them so you reds are more spaced out and to your liking... Very pretty BTW! I would cross-hatch... it is fast, looks good and easy for not so experienced quilter..... show us when it is finished....

I have done several jelly roll races and cross hatching is my choice. On the right side measure down 10 inches from top corner, on left side measure up 8 inches from bottom corner. Connect the two points with stitching and stitch next rows the desired widths. I have used 1.5' to 2' and sometimes vary them for just a bit more interest. Your quilt is great! Love the colors.
