    Have been watching all of you....with your super great creations. Well my favorite sister lives in Wyoming and rides Harleys on the weeksends (yes she is normal otherwise) so I had to make her a special one for her trip to Sturgis for the big rally....this is not for everyone, but I can assure you it is perfect for her.....

    So cool!

    Is she married? Does her husband wear bandanas? If so, you should make him one with that fabric. Or one of those sweat bands they wear.

    Looks nice maybe you could make a wrist band to match it? That might look cool:)

    Looks like you did a great job. I want to make one someday, but keep wondering if I can do it. Guess I will never know unless I try. Right???

    I can not tell you enough how very simple it is....just follow the directions, and use a stiff interfacing to give your tote some structure.... so it stands up at attention.....

    Great job - I'm not a Harley fan, but anyone who rides a Harley would love this quilt, and I really like the tote. I'm sure she will love it. What a great sister you are.

    MMM....great job! DD is a motorcycle mechanic for Harley.... BUT.... don't shoot me.....I really don't want to make her a bag with that fabric.....She LOVES huge leather or flashy bags....& it's amazing how much she has contributed to helping the economy of Canada so far! :shock:
