Default Need help with pattern

Hi, I went down to the Joann's in Mt Laruel last week. Spent way to much money LOL. I purchased some Batman fabric to make a quilt for my niece's boyfriend. He is a BIG Batman fan. Now that I have the fabric, I have no idea what to make with it. Any suggestions?

A Picture of the fabric would help. Is the print large or small?

I recently bought a pattern that I thought would be good for guys. It's called Boxtrot by Creative Solutions. It is a very modern geometric guy-type pattern. The sample I saw in the quilt store used the same focus fabric in all the boxes. Most guys don't really appreciate all those little pieces, although some do.

OOPS! Not sure how to turn it...guess everyone will just have to look sideways. lol Kinda like my straight 1/4 " seam.

Cute pattern! Could easily repeat the line of boxes if you wanted more too.

I usually let the fabric do the design. I'm making a quilt now for my grandson who loves fire trucks, the other one loves dino's. So purchased several types of fabrics with their love in mind and then just DAUG'd (design as you go). You can also go the Picture thread and search batman. You may get some inspiration. copy-imported-photos-00012.jpg

I just made this quilt for my DGS. Easy!!! Can make it as big as you want! Fussy cut the fabric to show off superheros! Squares are 9" but can be made any size depending on size quilt you want. This quilt measures 45 x 54. I am not putting on borders.

Default Need pattern idea for Batman Fabric

Hi
I purchased some Batman fabric las week down at Joann's in Mt Laurel, NJ. My niece's boyfriend just loves Batman, so I thought I would make him a quilt. I posted earlier this week and have been unable to post a picture from my home computer, so I hope my work PC works better. I also have red fabric with little silver dots, yellow fabric with red dots and circles and blue fabric with small dark blue dots.
After I purchased all this fabric, I have no idea on what pattern to use.donna-140resized-.jpg

DD's first boyfriend was Batman obsessed... Could tell some very interesting stories about him, lol.

Anyhow, I made him a Turning Twenty with Batman fabric and coordinating TOT's and textures in those colors.
