Roler recently posted this mini quilt on Craftster that she made. She made it for a cartoon-themed swap. Her partner loves “Adventure Time,” so Roler decided to make her a mini quilt wall art with her four favorite characters.
For anyone not familiar with the show, the characters, starting clockwise from top left, are Finn the Human, Lumpy Space Princess, Peppermint Butler, and Jake the Dog.
Roler said it’s a beginner quilt for her and about the size of the average place mat.
One of my son’s favorite comic book characters is Green Lantern. If I were a quilter, I would make him something like this Green Lantern baby quilt from Jenny Quilts. I love how simple yet bold it is.

Oh how I wish I could quilt!! This Super Mario Quilt made by Skittl1321 on Quilting Board is absolutely fantastic! The detail is lovely, and I’m sure any Mario fan would treasure this quilt! I know I would love one! Maybe it’s time for me to finally learn to quilt…
Bamf! It’s Nightcrawler, one of my favourite X-Men. I even named one of my kitties after him!
Cheryl is the creative genius behind this quilted mutant. She’s also made quilts featuring other geeky favourites, such as Wolverine, Yoda and Grumpy Cat. Her Flickr photostream is definitely worth a browse.
Want to know something cool? I’ve been to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters! In fact, I live right around the corner from it. It’s real life name is Hatley Castle, and it is gorgeous! It should definitely be on the sightseeing agenda for anyone visiting Victoria, BC.
This awesome quilt wall hanging was made by funthreads on craftster. I think it’s fantastic! I love space, and the colours used in this are beautiful! She describes in some detail how she made it, but not being a quilter myself, I don’t really understand, so I can’t comment on how detailed her instructions are! I adore the purple Saturn (or is it just a ringed planet?) and the rocks, and the glittery beads as stars… even the name of it, Somebody’s View, is perfect. Just imagine an alien sitting on a far planet looking at the purple Saturn. I would love to hang this on my wall!
