    This is my finished Batman quilt. I had originally posted it when it was too busy and received some great suggestions on how to fix it. It's still somewhat busy, but much more tolerable :D

    The pattern is square-in-a-square from Quilters cache http://quilterscache.com/S/Squareswi...res2Block.html and is 12.5" x 12.5" UF

    It's the companion quilt to my Superman one: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-106192-1.htm

    That came out great! I am going to copy that idea with a Disney theme for my dd. Thanks for sharing. I LOVED both the Batman AND Superman quilts ~ Pat

    Lucy -- you are so way ahead of me with your super hero quilts. My DH is so very picky about what he wants -- no heads cut off, no upside down figures, etc. I have not even started his quilt because we have just picked out a pattern that he finds acceptible. I hope to be starting it sometime next month. I've also committed myself to a wall hanging and a bag that he can take to the Comic Book conventions. Wonder Con is coming up this weekend in San Francisco. I've made him a lanyard for his badge but that's as far as I've gotten. So good for you that you've gotten yours done and they are very nice. Good job. Now I need to get working on mine. Promise to show then when they are done.

    Those are really nice and I like the way it is put together. I will use that pattern when I do one for charity. Thanks for sharing.

    It turned out great. You may find it busy, but some little boy is going to think it's soooo cool!

    I fussy cut the blocks (pain for Superman, since it's all close together), but I had to draw the line about worrying about parts getting cut off. I tried not to have any spots that were just legs or something, but not much worrying beyond that. I was careful to put the city all right side up, since I knew what would happen is they would all be one way except for 1, and it would drive me nuts
