Sonic quilt :full view: by marquise-crafts Sonic quilt :full view: by marquise-crafts
Sonic the Hedgehog quilt, ftw!

The black outline of Sonic himself is made of crushed velvet. I thought I'd try it since I found this old crushed velvet cape from my "Goth days" and figured it'd make good scrap fabric. It turned out to look surprisingly good, but it was a total nightmare to sew. I was covered in little velvet fuzzies for days and the fabric stretched a lot so it was hard to keep it straight.

The remainder of the quilt is symphony broadcloth while the back is anti-pill fleece. Rather than batting, I used a velveteen blanket for the middle part. Needless to say this quilt is VERY thick and VERY warm. Amazing for the coziness.

I made it for myself, to be honest. I'm a big Sonic fan from childhood. I can seriously play Sonic 2 for Sega Genesis with my eyes closed (No joke, I did it once for a friend to prove it). I made it without the intention of selling it, but if I get the right offer, I'd be willing to let it go. Maybe.

It also depends on the pattern. If it's a smaller, simpler pattern, I recommend 3" squares. :)
