    This will be for my brother who is 60 and still rides dirt bikes. I think he even still races. He must be crazy. But got this fabric about 3 yrs. ago and now it's time to make it. I also will be putting black and white checks on the back like whats in the finish line flag.

    Any ideas on how to quilt it?

    He will love it, and ya know it is that craziness that keeps him young! You have no idea how many 60ish give or take a few years are in terrible shape because they stop being active. I for one am fast headed in that direction if I don't change my ways as they say.

    To quilt it, I'd outline all the bikes and riders.

    That's awesome. Anyone who does cross country or motor cross would love it.

    I love it! way to go to your brother. I think if you quilted it in some type of a swirl pattern, like the dust those bikes kick up?

    Very nice! My husband rides a Honda Goldwing touring bike and I want to make a quilt for him, but I can't find the right fabric. I know your brother will love it!

    I would quilt around the motifs and just on their main lines so that they puff out.

    He is going to love it. How thoughtful of you. I love the idea of the flag fabric on the back

    My brother in law has been racing morotcycles since he was 15 and now this weekend at 69 he is still racing. I have some pictures from the 60's I am putting into a quilt for him using some of the fabric you used. Very nice.

    Great bikes! For quilting- perhaps do echo outlines, or even an all-over design~ Surely he will love it any way you do it!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
