I am sure he will love it ! It is an attractive and creative quilt. I don't know a biker that would not love this one. Just be sure he doesn't set the bike on top of it (Ugggggg) like some bikers I know. One love the quilt the other the bike.

Your choices of color and design are wonderful! My husband has had a motorcycle off and on all his life. He is one of those Biker's for life too. There is something about speeding along in the fresh air that is inspiring. Yes, I had my license for quite a while. Finally gave it up when he kept buying taller and taller bikes. No way to hold them up if your feet won't touch the ground. "smile"

He's going to be blown away by this quilt! It's totally awesome. Can't wait to see how you quilt it. The cubes are so unique & go perfectly with the quilt. No being a biker I'm curious if the cubes have a significant part in the design & if so, what is it? I love, love, love this quilt!!!

Very nice, I like the combination of the panel and the piecing in the lower part. I'm sure he will love it.

I love the quilt; especially the Hollow Cubes. I have made lots of them; they are not hard to make. Just like most things, you have to learn how it goes. If you look up "Hollow Cubes Quilt" I'm sure something will come up. It's made with just a few triangles surrounded by a few strips.
I love how the colors are placed with these, with the top matching the floor, and fronts matching back walls.

If you look in Cat on a mac's Quilt Gallery, you can see mine under Tumbling Blocks.

I wanted to say I love your quilt! I thought of making my son a biker panel quilt, but never thought of these open cubes. This is so neat! It won't be this Christmas tho, as I'm making him a deer panel quilt. Show us after it's quilted too.
