This weekend is the fall festival at my son's school, and they have a huge silent auction to raise money. Each class has to put together a themed "basket" to be auctioned off. I am Room Mom (Extraordinaire), so I'm in charge of our class basket. First job? Pick a theme. I chose Batman. Stick with what you know, right? Each kid in the class brings in something for the basket. Of course, a Batman quilt was in order.
I didn't give myself much time to finish the quilt, so I went simple!
I included some strips of solids and some batman yardage. Plus, creepy Joker face. I quilted it in an all-over robotic-type stipple in yellow thread.
This is evidently the best photo I took of the back? No explanation here.
Yesterday, I spent several hours assembling the basket. You see, it's not really a basket at all. They have to be able to move it around the gym, so everything is taped within an inch of its life. I took this picture before I wrapped the whole thing in cellophane. Oof.
