    So, I was off at Joann on Saturday. I needed some girl time and had some money to spare haha

    When I came across this transformers fabric. Since I wanted to make hubby a quilt I thought it was perfect (we both share a love for transformers!)

    So I picked it up along with some red fabric and some yellow fabric.

    The only thing I am stuck on is a quilt pattern to use. I really want to showcase the transformers fabric and I have 1 yard of each. Here are the fabrics. Your comments are much appreciated!!

    and the red is deep but bright with a design that looks like dragon scales on it.


    Edit: and here is the quilt I was thinking of possibly making:

    I thought it would showcase the transformers quilt well.
    And also, I was thinking, that if I machine it fast, I can take my time on the quilting and possibly handquilt a design.
    I was thinking of doing the transformers logo as the quilting pattern.

    That will be Great... I did a quilt for my daughter when she turned Sweet 16 and in the border I quilted all of her favorite things from TV shows to boys to pets...she loved it.

    Happy quilting,
