    Cool 4th and Last Harley Quilt, very bitter sweet!!!!

    This is the last of the Harley quilts I have made for this family. This will be their quilt. I did lots of extra's on this quilt for them. I used all the pockets from the t's in the 3 corners of the border but the 4th one I used the pocket from his Harley shorts with the button. The back of the quilt is all the fabric and leftover t-shirts along with a label. I also used the very last t-shirt and made a pillow for them. I used my embroidery machine to do this. I have enjoyed this young family of 3 who soon will be 4. I hope this quilt gives them many loving memories of his Dad. I made sure it had lots of Harley designs and many others he liked. Thanks for looking at this quilt.

    I should state that this quilt is a memory quilt for the Father. His son and wife had 4 quilts made for his 3 sisters and himself. Very Sad to think he left so young. The young couple are expecting their second child with is a boy. They have a 2 yr old daughter.

    Great quilt. I'm sure that family is going to love every inch of it. It looks as though you used every last inch of fabric available! Good job. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome memorial. I bet it feels good too, with all that T-shirt material.
