    Enjoy the Ride Coast to Coast - Motorcycle Quilt

    Saw this Coast to Coast fabric and knew I had have it! The center of the quilt is a panel and I used matching fabrics from the line to make the quilt longer. These panels are quite a challenge when they are longer in one direction - at least for me. I have been trying to make more "guyish" quilts but this works for ladies too! I used charcoal gray minky on the back and a Maze quilting E2E pattern for the quilting.

    Fun quilt and I love that quilting pattern. When I try straight lines it looks like a drunk raccoon did them.

    Where can I get the panel? My daughter is in a motorcycle group, wants me to make a quilt for a friend in the group who is having a rough patch. This panel is perfect!

    My entire group membership, 1300 women in the US & Canada, would love this quilt! We each ride our own bike & many have ridden coast to coast, our version of E2E. This is a great quilt, & I’d also love to have the name of the fabric line.

    The fabric line is called Coast to Coast

    Great quilt! Any motorcycle enthusiast would love it. I too ride my own and while I haven't gone coast to coast I have ridden from Eastern NYS to Yellowstone, then skirted into Utah down into Colorado and home. That was our longest trip but we have done a couple close to that going to Sturgis in South Dakota.
    There is nothing quite like seeing (feeling and smelling) the country from a motorcycle. It pretty much sucks when the weather is bad and I have definitely ridden through my fair share of storms and cold weather. Love my heated gear. The only thing I don't like about those long trips (on average about 10 days) is leaving my dogs. I miss them horribly when I am away like that. The cats too.

    Awesome quilt, it's great to see the patterns that can be achieved when you have a computerized machine.

    That is awesome!
    What is the size of your 1/2 triangle squares?
    It would be useful since so many of us use a panel..
    Thank you
