Harley Davidson quilt

A while back I received a request to finish a quilt someone’s neighbor had begun years ago. It was a Harley Davidson quilt.

“The shirts are already cut!” he told me. Normally I brace myself when I hear that because it means more work for me. Folks cut the shirts without stabilizer or with no consistent size. But this fella’s neighbor had done her homework! The shirts were stabilized and mostly consistently cut.

He wanted a different type of border than I’d used in the past, but I could see how’d they’d done it easily enough. The original t-shirt quilt he’d seen was in a museum in Florida.

And typical me…it was raining, so I didn’t get a finished picture.

Here are a couple of in-progress ones. You get the idea.

  1. Absolutely STUNNING! I was just asked to make a Harley T-shirt quilt and love the layout of this one! Can you please let me know what size the blocks were cut? Also, the black & orange sashing, what’s the width on those? I’m assuming the smaller squares are 2×2? Thanks!!

    1. The blocks are 15″ square. The smaller squares are 4″ square. The sashing is 2″ wide for the middle color and 1″ wide for the sides. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions!
