    My grandaughter is living with a boy that is crazy about Harley Davidson's so she asked me if I would make him a quilt for her to give him for Christmas. A friend of mind drew up the plans & this is what we came up with.

    I did it probably the hard way but I cut my squares & then just sewed them by sections. I had it drawed out.
