    Harley Davidson Quilt for SIL

    Recently married daughter's DH is a Harley Davidson fan. He picked the fabrics for this quilt. I have color issues so was not terribly inspired by his choices, However, it is for him so his fabric choices were honored.

    Turned out much better than I thought it would.

    The center is a HD bandana bought from a local HD dealer. The bandana fabric is not particularly high quality, but I know will only be judged for it's beauty to a Harley Davidson lover.

    The back is a black fleece with multi-colored flames on it. Looks good.

    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    love it. I have looked for HD fabric for years. My friends that used HD in Dubuque, Iowa told me their is no fabric out there.

    I do have some from Sturges SD fabric shop that says 75th anniversary but you can't get it anymore

    There is a fabric store in Sturges that sells bike fabric

    Yes, HD fabric is difficult to find, hence the use of the bandana as the center of the quilt. SIL is a chef and likes 'hogs' so the blue fabric was his choice.

    Great quilt, altho I personally prefer our Honda, which is not as "noise polluting" as the popular Harley! (Some have made fun of us cause they say it sounds like a "sewing machine," but I say - a sewing machine rings my chime.) You did a great job on the quilt honoring his passion - that 's the important thing.
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    I'll bet he will be very happy with this quilt. I like the motorcycle fabric and the flames.
