So yeah, I made that.
Jack Attack sleeps quite hot at night. So hot in fact that the fleece Superman blanket I made him for the winter is starting to turn in to a liability as our nighttime temps creep in to the upper 40's. Unlike our old craphole apartment, our rental house stays warm and toasty 24/7.
Homeboy needed a "summer time" quilt. Even though it was spring. Semanitcs!
The quilt was inspired by this style, and came together to nicely. This was my first quilt, and I feel like I learned a lot, which is oh so helpful considering I'm currently working on one for our spare bed.
I had initially designed this to have a quilt "inner" in it, but after realizing the almost finished product was quite heavy and warm, I took the "guts" back for a refund. The colorful fabric is two different kinds of dinosaur flannel that Jack and I picked out months and months ago.
The white portion is an old table cloth that Troy's grandma was getting rid of. The back is a warm and cozy light flannel that I got on sale for $7.50. Total cost of this: about $11.
And a pound of flesh for the time. Worth it though. How many people get to say they can make quilts for Captain America?
