The Batman Quilt
The inspiration for this quilt spawned from The Rustic Knight being adamant about keeping all clothing batman related, and me trying to figure out what to do with them that didn't include keeping them in a box, until Kit had children of his own. We bought Kit his new bunk bed a couple of months ago and decided he needed a new blanket to fit the new twin beds...
Lo and behold, a Batman quilt!
Keep in mind, I have absolutely no idea how to make a quilt.
I am just sewing on a prayer, trusting that this will all work out...
Because I know it will be beautiful. And I know Kit will love this :)
Here are the materials used:
|Batman t-shirts, pajamas, and costumes...|
|Some clothing I had that I never wear, but|
are the appropriate colors
|We bought fleece material for the base of the blanket and batman material for the squares;|
I have enough to make pillow covers. I bought a total of 5 yards for $35!
After laying out all of my material, I took inventory of what I had in Batman decals and the other colors.
Then, I did a mock layout of the pattern to be the quilt.
|I spent about a half hour deciding the placement of the squares.|
that I believe I will have this complete within the next couple of weeks!
Of course, it's not like I have much more time than that anyhow :)
