Here are some of the detailed photos of the quilting.
The finished quilt is about 75" x 90". I used American Made Brand (100% US grown premium upland cotton) fabric for the black background and the grey backing. This is rather important to me given the context of the people to whom this quilt may reside. The applique fabrics were purchased on a variety of IWMC rides. Mostly under the radar as good fabric stores in small towns are generally not far from bars. I am known to vanish temporarily as bikes are being parked, only to show up as the drinks/food arrives with a package of fabric in my hands and a smile on my face.
