About the Quilt & Creator:

Lynn Harris has been quilting "forever" and has entered quilts at various quilt shows over the years throughout the Southeast. Her trademark "Log Cabin" style is a standout pattern for quilting. Using only small blocks and strips of fabric sewn together involves countless hours of devotion to the craft. In this particular quilt the smallest piece is only 2"x2" and the longest in only 2"x13" (not counting the outer border and secondary border).

The overall size of the finished quilt measures 96" long x 68" wide. There are 24 separate "blocks" in the quilt with each block featuring a small H-D logo in the center. There are well over 300 small pieces of fabric needed to create this masterpiece. The back is made from multiple pieces of hot chili pepper fabric sewn together seamlessly. The quilt stitching represents the “flames” often used as motorcycle decor. 

The estimated value of this quilt is at least $2,000. This value is assigned based on the amount received for a similar style quilt that brought $2,200 a couple of years ago at an auction by Daytona Harley Davidson for one of their charities. Over the years Lynn’s quilts have raised over $50,000 for various charities and non-profit groups like ours.

Lynn is also a long-standing member of HOG and has contributed to the current Ancient City HOG Chapter (ACHOG) as an officer, road captain and Ladies of Harley. Prior to her association with ACHOG, she was heavily involved with many aspects of the former St Augustine HOG Chapter.
