    So this is my going to be my block for my boyfriends harley davidson quilt I'm making him for xmas. I bought sheets covered in the emblem and am cutting them out individually and going to piece them together. I'm actually pretty proud of myself as I had to rearrange all the measurments due to a bigger than expected emblem! Thanks for looking!!

    Great job!

    I have made quilts out of Harley T-shirts for our motorcycle club to raffle off. So if he has any shirts that he doesn't wear any more, don't fit, have a stain or whatever you could use that as well because most the time the best imprint is the one on the back from the dealership. But I'm not sure how you would get it without spoiling the surprise of Christmas.

    Love how you used official Harely colors for the sashing too!

    Great Job ! He will love it , who wouldn't :lol:

    And a clever way to get the fabric you want when they don't sell it as regular fabric

    So very cool. Glad my brothers do not know about this board or they would both be begging for a Harley Quilt :). Also, love the border colors too :).

    I totally agree! I hadn't thought of using sheets. How clever of you!

    What a great idea. I will have to look for those sheets. Both my husband and my youngest son have Harleys.
    You are doing a great job.

    Thanks ladies!! It's tough going definately...but your support makes it a little easier!!

    Thank you for fixing the picture Amma!! I didn't realize it wasn't in the right format!!

    I got the sheets from JCPenny.com for about $40.

    Happy quilting all!!

    I made my son a Harley quilt two years ago and it was from his T-shirts. I also used some bandanas, some of his club emblems, pockets from his shirts and even his wife's T's and still had a couple of his nieces' little shirts., so I used them also. My favorite block was that of his niece's little denim Harley pocket book.
    I sewed only the front of the purse on the block and then added the purse's flap and shortened the shoulder strap and sewed that on in a curve. Godd place to hide something as the purse still opens and closes.

    My blocks ranged from 4"x4" to 16"x16" and all in between............

    It was a challenge to say the least....I couldn't have completed it without the help of hubby.

    good luck on yours.....my son was thrilled with his and I know that your boyfriend will be likewise.
