My nephew Elliot turned six this year and the bed quilt he's using now has started to look a little juvenile to me. I asked Elliot whether he wanted a new quilt and, if so, what he wanted it to look like. His response was "black, like Batman." I know that Batman fabric is something that I could probably buy, but it's a) not my style and b) something I doubt my sister wants in her house either. I also think it's likely that Elliot doesn't remember what he told me, so I'm not too concerned about my decision to take the quilt in a different direction!
Does anyone remember the quilt I made for Block Party? I decided that I wanted a version of it in colors that would match my house. Like all of the patterns in Block Party, this one is beautiful in its simplicity and very easy to put together.
