    Well I am slowly working down my list of need to do's and here are a few pictures of the boyfriends quilt. It turned out very well and he loves it. it's a king sized, very heavy quilt. the inside area is a flag we bought in sturgis the year we rode the Harley to see it. I made matching pillow cases and nightstand toppers also. It has a mix of hand and machine quilting on it.

    I wish i could have gotten better pictures but it is just too big! I hand quilted around the words, numbers and biker and machine quilted the rest. I free motioned around the majority of the flames in the flag and the rest was stitch in the ditch. Boyfriend picked out most of the fabric himself. i didn't let him see it until the whole top was done so it was still a surprise for him. for an idea of size the Sturgis flag is 3 feet by 5 feet. So this is certainly the largest quilt i have ever made!

    Outstanding job. Great idea to use the flag as biker type fabric is few and far between. We have never been to Sturgis, but we do go to the Easy Rider Rodeo in Michigan every year. I don't ride anymore, wish it could, it's a long story. Hubby still has a Sportster he shares with his brother. Thanks for showing, you're giving me ideas!!!!!
