|My first 1,000 miles & ten years~|

I'd been looking for a fabric for the background, something Western - when my cousin & owner of the Quilter's Fix in Sheridan, WY called to say that she had found something that I'd like! The print looks like tooled leather. I cut out the patterns on all the shirts, ordered some for the rides that hadn't given out shirts & laid them out from our very first fifty at the Bryce XP, to the last at the Milwaukee Rail Trail.
Next was finding someone to do the work! Again - Jackie came to the rescue & found a super talented seamstress in Sheridan to do all the blocking, binding, etc. Deb is booked up months in advance, so during the wait, we ordered in the flannel for the back. I love using flannel - it makes the quilts a little heavier & warmer.
When the finished quilt arrived in the mail last week & I opened the box, it was like opening years full of memories!
