At the time I didn’t want to make the bat quilt…but 200+ people told me to suck it up and make the bat quilt, and one person said that it was weird to make a bat quilt in June.
So I made the bat quilt…
…and I loved making the bat quilt…
…and more importantly, he really loves the bat quilt.
Really though, this was the most fun I’ve had making a quilt in awhile because I knew he was excited about it.
Also it was easy to cut out, the blocks are big (15″ finished), and there are only 12 blocks so it’s a breeze to sew together. It’s a nice throw size at 54″ x 69″.
Kaitlyn quilted this for me, I wanted the quilting to look like windy skies, and this design worked perfect.
Background: Blossom black on White
Binding: Black 1/4″ Stripes
It would also be awesome with some Halloween-ish Kona cottons:
Also here’s a sneak peek of a new product I have in the shop now…it makes sewing these bats together 1000x faster (slight exaggeration)!
I’ll post more about it next week. Also there’s a sneak peek of how linty my machine is….ick.
Can you believe fall is right around the corner?! I need at least another 2 months of summer!
It went by too fast this time!!
