What materials did you use? This is the "Large" size from the pattern; I used 14" of 4 different blues, 14" of 4 different blacks, and 14" of 3 different yellows, plus extra for the border. You could probably make this with a few charm packs or layer cakes though (but it would be tough finding suitable colors...) If you're having trouble working out how to make it, there's some detailed instructions in the pattern!

What are you most proud of? Designing the pattern and doing all the math to make it work out right in different sizes! It was my first time making a pattern from just a picture.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use some bright blues for the background, to contrast with the black. You also want to use some lighter/manilla yellow colors so he doesn't look sickly, haha. I also love using black batiks, and maybe throwing some purple in. Also be careful placing the applique facial features! You can change his expression very easily with the slightest tweak to his mouth, or the slant of his eyes. I wonder what a smiling Batman would look like!

I forgot to mention that I love the star wars hidden in your quilt stitches. Beautifully done tie and x-wing fighters.

I really enjoy the whimsy of this quilt. I'd have loved to see it quilted with a bat-mobile, bat-signal, or baterangs. I love starwars quilting though. That is really cool.
