So this project started as a picnic blanket for the Prophets of Rage concert we went to last Saturday. Unfortunately, i have this annoying habit of coming up with rather large projects around 5 days before i would need / want them done so Vrona suggested making a quilt instead.
It’s not a brand new idea. I’ve mentioned it a few times before but now – it’s actually happening ha! I’m wicked excited!
I had Vrona make a list of all of the bands he would want on it and asked him to think about the colours he would want the quilt to be. I love that we love the same types of music. This quilt is going to be badass!
- A Perfect Circle
- Alice in Chains
- All That Remains
- HED PE
- Highly Suspect
- Marilyn Manson
- Nine Inch Nails
- Nothing More
- Rage Against the Machine
- Rise Against
- System of a Down
He chose the colours black, white and red, but then decided to just do black and red. No border since the he wouldn’t want the border to be white and it looks funny as black or red. No biggie – might even be easier!
For something like this, i’ve always thought about using interfacing for the graphics, but i think i’m going to go the fabric paint route. Some of these logos are a little detailed.
I picked up fabric spray paint already in black, red and white, but i’m still unsure how it’s going to work. I’m certain using fabric paint and a paint brush is going to be much neater even if spray paint seems easier. I’ll cut out all of the squares first and then use some remnants for testing.
The more I think about it the more i’m leaning toward fabric paint and a paint brush.. I should really return the spray paint haha!
Once Vrona is happy with the quilt mock up, i’ll post it 🙂 I’ve pretty much laid out all of the variations for him (white logo, red logo, black logo on red or black square) to pick from. I think Nine Inch Nails is the only one i’m not completely satisfied with but hey – it’s not for me 😉
More later yea?
