Sunday Quilt Inspiration: motorcycles

macco-bonneville-t100-blackdog_020I've been working on a customer memory quilt for over a week now. Today it hit me (finally!) that the theme of my customer's quilt would serve as good inspiration for other quilts.   Apparently the customer has been a Harley Davidson fan for several years. The number of shirts and the places they represent tell me that he didn't just buy a motorcycle. This guy has probably seen all 50 of the states and has a shirt from each one.

One day I'll own one of these and I'll ride fast on long open roads. I can't imagine how much peace and freedom you experience from that.

Now, I haven't the foggiest of ideas what I've just posted. Other than to have seen a motorcycle, I have no experience on one. When on the highway, I try to avoid traveling close to one because I believe in giving everyone their space, especially something small enough to lose when changing lanes. 

2009 ninja 250r is <3 i think this will be the cause of my ... Death hahaha AND WHO CARES! #AdrenalineJunkieThe thought of hitting or being hit by another vehicle is rather sickening: I certainly don't want to see someone sliding down the highway with nothing but road under him. Everyone gets some free space.

Anyway, I found a few motorcycle quilts. Most, if not all, are Harley Davidson themed, but it's the only brand I've seen enough to recognize.

I'm not showing you the quilt I'm working on because a) there's not much to show and b) I haven't taken any pictures. If all goes well, I'll post a picture of the top in a few days. I'm at least a week or so from a finished quilt. So far it's looking like it will be a big one!

I have visions of a Harley quilt in my head, but no one has ordered one. Best of luck on finishing your quilt!!

I don't know so much about Harleys (not as many here as in the US) but I do know a nice Triumph when I see one.
