On my design wall this week is a quilt for a friend. It’s made up of Marvel Comic prints from Spring Creative and Camelot fabrics. I ordered them on line and didn’t think there would be a disparity in quality, but there is. The Spring Creative brand fabric does not have the same hand and thread count as the Camelot. Sad because they were priced about the same, and the subject is licensed to both. I came up with the following block:
I made twenty of them, at 16 X 16 inches, they will make up a nice size throw. I’m using a dark gray Kona for the sashing and borders. The backing fabric print will be his favorite NFL team’s logo. Its pretty busy with all the comic pages and colors. I figure it won’t show dirt/use quickly though.
I worked a lot on the Hosta quilt this weekend, I’m about 70 percent done. Maybe tomorrow I’ll finish it up.
I have also been knitting away on my Sprite’s Fen Shawl for the Shawl Society II KAL. I’m using a lace weight yarn, so its hard to see what the finished garment is going to look like, but I like it so far. I’m about 35% done.
Linking up with Judy at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts for Design Wall Monday today.
