We Grants tend to wave our nerd flag pretty high and bedding is no exception. Daughter #1 was heading off to college this fall and Jo-Ann’s had some amazing fandom fabric. What better way to combine it all in one than to make a quilt?
Armed with a pattern from Happy Zombie for the patio quilt and fabric representing Star Wars, Jaws, Dr. Who, Marvel Avengers, The X-Files, Gravity Falls, and an occasional Sasquatch here and there, we built this beauty.
Along with Jo-Ann’s, we found some of our fabric at Spoonflower, a really cool site with custom fabric. Okay, I will admit it: We finished the quilt top two days before she left for school. But we have some amazing Lord of the Rings fabric waiting for our backing and batting and we’ll be quilting by Christmas break. I think the nerd quilt will be ready to go to school for second semester.
I think my favorite square is the Sasquatch/X-Files mix. What’s yours?
