Harley-Davidson quilt

Our good friend has a birthday coming up and he loves his Harley. Wanting to make him a quilt I searched the internet and found "Official" Harley fabrics to order. There isn't much cotton fabric out there and it is expensive. I ordered 4 different types to use in the quilt.

This is the pattern I chose. It will be a large lap quilt almost twin size.

My daughter's helping me, I cut and iron while she sews. We've done this on many quilts, it goes fast and gives us special times together.

We bought lots and lots of blacks, grays and a little "Harley" orange.
She has 1/3 of the blocks pieced.

Some of our fabrics in the blocks.

For Christmas my friend Vicky gave me this unassuming  black t-shirt. Looks sort of tough "Harley like.

But when you look closer you see and antique sewing machine on front,

and on the back a wonderful picture and saying.

Thank you Vicky!
