Rippling Star in R & B Tavern

I have finished the Rippling Star by Debbie Maddy of Calico Carriage Quilt Designs.  I chose to make it in the beautiful R & B Tavern Fabrics by Paula Barnes.

I love all of the Calico Carriage Quilt Designs Patterns.  I made the King size for the shop sample.  It is huge 118" x 118".  

It is so big I had a hard time getting a photo of it.  So it had to lay on the floor a little.

I just love Civil War Reproduction Reds and Blues.   I think this will be perfect for my house during the summer months.  

I quilted the quilt with a stars and stripes pattern in tan thread.

The backing is a piece with blue and red small print that I had been wanting to use for a backing.  But couldn't find just the right quilt.

Marvel Comics Stained Glass Quilt

I have just finished making a quilt from the new Marvel Comics fabrics.  I used the Turning Twenty - Simply Sashed booklet by Tricia Cribbs.  I have many of her booklets and this one is my favorite.  The pattern I used from the booklet was the Stained Glass Pattern.  Finished Quilt is 75" x 92".  But can be easily made larger with the addition of a border.

When we got the Marvel Comics fabrics in I knew that we would have to make a quilt with them (my husband immediately claimed).  We just seldom get fabrics in that are so versatile and make great quilt kits for boy, teens and men.

The Stained Glass pattern in the booklet worked perfect for a comic quilt since the black sashing really matches the look of comic book pages.

I must admit that I was very inspired as I was sewing this quilt.  I re-watched (or listened) to the Avengers.

Of course I used moda black for the sashing and used a black with red polka dot for the backing.  I quilted in a wide meander.

Thanks for letting me share.
