But it happened.
Never wanted to own a motorcycle quilt, let alone set out to build one.
But that happened too.
Plans change. People change.
One thing leads to another.
3 bikes later, I look back and smile.
This quilt was a classic "brain on fire" episode. A spark that blew up in my head...an explosion of "what if's" and "this might work's" that landed me, years later, here.
A few years ago I sketched my 2nd bike, a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard 800. I fondly called this bike Piggy for as much as I loved it I hoped he'd one day grow into a Hog. Thought I could free piece it-- HA! Changed my mind-- QUICK! So instead I drafted my bike in a fashion that I could see it paper pieced, enlarged it, tweaked it, pieced it, made some free pieced letters, put it all together, took it all apart, cut parts down, put it back together, basked in the glow, showed it off a bit, put it in the closet. Figured I'd quilt it, someday.
Had. To. Have. It.

With a long arm I never thought I'd own.
Have to make another quilt someday, I ride a Fatboy now.
Like I said: Things change.
What better way to kick off this year's chilly riding season than to have a cozy bike quilt for my cold bones to curl up in when I get home!
