Announcing Cotton Spandex Jersey!
Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To seek our pale enchanted gold.
This cheater quilt describes Bilbo's journey, from the Shire to the Lonely Mountain and back again.
The quilt tiles both vertically and horizontally. It is a two yard repeat with only slight changes on the second yard - Bilbo is returning to the Shire, rather than leaving. You are looking at the vertically repeating pattern - for the horiztonal repeat, see http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1585168.
I put many details from the book into this fabric, so I recommend viewing the Flickr photo at its largest setting so you don't miss anything.
If you are intending to make a project, like a quilt, that requires sewing vertical panels together: the pattern is set to tile properly at the 56" width. If you buy 42" wide cloth, you will get around 1 1/3 horizontal repeats instead of 2. Vertical tiling is handled by Spoonflower.
What we do and how we do it.
