Progress of the HARLEY quilt

 I know I have shown you 1 or 2 photos of this quilt . You have definitely seen the finished quilt but here I’m going to show you my progress photos.

Cutting to see what I’m working with…

Now I have started cutting

Centre of the top is done.

Borders are on.

Quilting is done.

Look at the finish

Then we gather at our motorbike group. There were about 30 bikes join us for the days ride.
I have donated this quilt for their special 30 th anniversary AGM day.

And the quilt is auctioned and raised $600
Not bad considering no one knew it was happening. We did have about 70 people attend the night. Mostly couples. A beautiful dinner, a live band and a great group of people.
Look at this beautiful stop we had at Euston.
We are in the middle of winter and the weather was just perfect.

And we had a great day….

How wonderful, you have done a great job in making this quilt, and you can be sure that the successful raffle ticket holder being a club member will love their prize. Plus, a nice boost to the club funds too.

How good is that! I bet the winner of the auction was thrilled to receive it. The design is very effective. I love how you used a checker plate fabric for the background. Weren’t you lucky to have good weather for the ride. We haven’t had a fine weekend here for ages.
