Quilting and biking?

We are fortunate to have the Central Lakes Trail system running right through our small town.  It used be the Burlington Northern railroad tracks until 1992 when it was turned into a recreational attraction. Now, what does this educational information have to do with quilting?  Our newest quilt pattern, called "Life is Beachy" reminds us of bikes on the boardwalk or biking to the beach on a hot summer day.  The pattern is super easy because it contains pre-cut layer cakes. The fabric we used, Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater of Moda, has a Nantucket Island beach theme with bicycles, crabs and other beachy things.  The long arm quilting by Just by Spoolin' Around chose an all over bicycle design that fits perfect with the fabrics.  It was obvious to us, in our search for a photo shoot location, we should use our wonderful bike trail as a backdrop.  We would have chosen the beach, but with this HOT, HUMID weather we've been having the beaches are swarming with sunbathers and swimmers.
