Last year I made my son a bat quilt, and I’ve been planning a colorful version ever since.
I used the Bats pattern I wrote last year, and a variety of bright basic fabrics.
The background bones fabric (isn’t that cute?!) is from the line Scaredy Cat by Riley Blake. It’s getting tricky to find now, but I bet brick and mortar shops might have it.
This lime bat was my favorite of the bunch…and you can see I placed it smack dab in the middle of the quilt.
I quilted this one myself in a swirly pattern. I dragged my feet to quilt it for a few weeks and then once I finally made myself get started, it only took me a couple of hours or so.
I love the quilting part….but I will procrastinate making a backing and basting the quilt foreeeeeever.
I backed it with the blue plaid from my Backyard Blooms fabric, and bound it with a pink stripe.
Now it’s draped over Sophie’s bed and she’s happy as a clam with her Halloween quilt in non-Halloween colors.
Here’s the one I made last year for Ryan:
His is definitely more Halloween-ish….but hers is so fun with all the color! Bat quilt pattern can be found here.
Have a great day! -Allison
