    Another one of those 2 hrs or less excuses to not clean house :lol:

    Housewarming gift for my biker best friend (hoping I don't insult by not making a Harley but I loved this chopper pic, lol). Fusible applique, design from a tattoo or something I found online. Showing how I'm labeling quilts now too, super simple, used twill tape for this one, usually it's grosgrain ribbon. This mini measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. I'll attach a little ribbon tie to the back for hanging because I know he'd NEVER use it for a mug rug. Oh, and my back binding isn't perfect because I did the 2 step machine option instead of a proper hand sewing. Thanks for looking!

    I love it! I am a "biker" too, have been for 10 years. I have ridden my Harley all over the southwest. You did a great job.

    I love any excuse not to clean house!!! As they say, a clean house is a sign of a broken sewing machine!

    Great job by the way!

    How clever to use a design from a tattoo! It looks really cool.

    Wow you guys, you should get together and bike around the USA and see us all. I love that gift. Great job on the design. I don't ride and never have but both my boys have Fat BOys and love them. They ride all the time. When we travel with them, the guys ride the bikes and we ride in the vehicle behind them. Then they put them on a trailor. Bikers really get into their bikes. I love to see people loving life. :)
