Question #1: what block pattern are you thinking of? AND Question #2: did you actually find Captain America fabric by himself or was he included in with the Avengers? I've been keeping my eyes open for C.A. all alone bc one of my daughter's best friends is NUTS about him. If I ever find the fabric, I'm going to make her a pillow case so she can "sleep with him every night."
She recently ran into him at Disneyland, I think, (but it might have been Universal) and swears they have a special understanding. I love the silliness of 20-somethings - they are so much more fun than moody teenagers.
Wonderful progress on Tink. She's looking grand!!
It's been almost a week since I've been on here. I love, love, love the quilt.
It's so beautiful. I can agree deciding on the right quilting might be difficult. My first thought is to border in each of the kitty squares with a SID and leave them be. Then the rest of the quilt could be with a favorite design in the sashing and borders...if you can find some sort of rose design, that would fit perfectly with this beautiful piece.
As for the Captain America quilt, for the time being, I am thinking of using a quilt pattern I found in McCall's Quick Quilts magazine. But I am considering designing my quilt design because I think I need a bigger center of the quilt blocks so I can be sure I can fit a whole Captain America in the block. The design on the fabric is bigger than I remembered. I found the fabric at my local JoAnn's. It is strictly Captain America. They also had a design that is strictly Ant Man (hubby's other favorite Avenger).
I know what you mean about kiddos being fun in their 20's. My son is in his mid-20's and he embraces his inner geekiness now instead of being embarrassed. It's been a lot of fun. He and hubby enjoy their discussions on which Avenger power would they like to have and why.
I've got another picture to post...hopefully, sometime today or tomorrow. It's actually two new sections finished on the Tink picture. Unfortunately, the last picture I took, my camera was acting up. It came up as "corrupt" or some such nonsense.
