It took me all day to finish this UFO. I'm tired! I didn't not think it would have taken me all day. I'm glad it is finally done. It measures 75" x 85". It was already bound. The black and yellow fabric is commercial, but I hand dyed the greens and blues and the backing. I don't know exactly when I started this quilt, but my best guess is sometime in 2013 or 2014. My top thread was Sulky Rayon and the bottom thread was various cotton threads.

I got the Harley t-shirt quilt pin basted today. That is a big job done! The quilt top went together so easy. The design again was simple, but the two colored columns of shirts represents the number 11.

I got the top all sewn together and it is now ready for me to pin baste. Right now it measures 85 1/2" x 95 1/2". The backing is just wide enough; not much to spare at all in the width. I will make it work!

I am happy with the progress I have made on the Harley t-shirt quilt. Three-fifths sewn together! If I can find the time tomorrow, I would like to get the rest sewn together so I could be quilting this by the weekend!

First, thank you all for your kind comments on my GB piece. This next quilt is not any dramatic design, but it has significance. I have made a Harley quilt every year for the past 5 years to donate to a poker run that is run by a lovely lady. The money raised is donated to charity in remembrance of her daughter who was killed in a car accident. This year is the 11th year since she passed, thus the two columns with colored t-shirts will be the number 11. Last year I made an X with the colored t-shirts for 10 years and a hug. I got the center column sewn together.

The Gee's Bend quilt is done! I got to put a big black X thru the picture that I have hanging on my door of all my UFO projects. One done; 14 to go!
