Finally! I finished the quilt for Miss Ru last night and she immediately wanted it put on her bed.
When she got her new, bigger bed, I told her I would make her a quilt. (Of course.) She said that she wanted a Batman quilt, which threw me for a bit of a loop. What is a Batman quilt, and how would I make it? She said, "No, not of Batman, but with the colors in the comics." Miss Ru is a huge Batman fan. You don't even want to know how many videos there are of him in her collection. Anyway, this is the color scheme I came up with, and Mr. Muddling provided the finishing touch.
He cut out all those bats flying on the quilt top. It might not be the choice a lot of people would make, but I do understand his attraction for Ruthie. Batman is a mere human who has withstood devastating losses, yet continues to battle evil without super powers, just a lot of determination. (And a LOT of marvelous toys!)
The backing is a Jinny Beyer print. It looks gray, but is actually a soft violet.
Miss Ru's dog Ariel approves.
This picture is just for the fun of it. I had to take a break while quilting this one and lay down on the floor. Looking up I noticed how pretty the quilt looked from the bottom with the light shining through it. I used a really thick polyester batting, which I guess is why you can see right through it. Funny.
Not a lot going on out in the gardens in all this heat. Mr. Muddling's outdoor construction project is still in progress, hence the ladder, etc. still out there.
I've had enough of Summer now, thank you very much. I'm ready for Fall. How about you?
Hugs and kisses,
