Does anyone know of or have a quilt pattern for a motorcycle quilt? Looking for one to do in the near future.

Thanks

I haven't seen any but since I draw stick people I suggest looking in childrens coloring books.  Maybe someone else will give you a better answer.

I've seen motorcycle fabric somewhere and you could use fabric squares and set them off with an outer block design or make them every other block or something like that. Google the fabric and see what you think.

Patty, I'm making a motorcycle quilt out of Harley t-shirts. I picked the Harley colors for sashing and borders.  I might try my hand at a large appliqué of our tour bike in the center. I'm not sure what you are looking for but I would venture to guess you are going to have to design your own quilt.

I didn't know you'd be using Harley t-shirts.  That will look great.

Maggie have any suggestions on the finishing of a t-short quilt, I have made one out of church t-shirts and another one of a college sororiety but only have a normal size sewing machine to quilt on. Any advise on how to ensure it will be stable for quilting?
