The Bat-Blog is pretty famous for celebrating creativity, in any form, but this photo is just totally amazing! I actually love old quilts as an American art form. But this modern-day one is just really great! It's titled "ARKHAM ASYLUM". Besides Batman, Robin, & a few versions of Batgirl, we also get to enjoy many images of some major villains: Poison Ivy, Bane, the Penguin, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and many more. Please be sure to click on the photo for a much larger picture. The details are beautiful! ( Thank you Debra for sending this pic )

I don't like using the word "cute" in association with anything Batman related, but this quilt was pretty cute. Actually, we should call it "crazy", since there was an old-time Bat villain named Crazy Quilt, right? Ha.

The details really do pop out when you click the big pic. Very well done, quilter!

My mom made this quilt. It's currently on my bed. This picture was on my sister's blog.

She designed all the squares herself. It looks even better in person. She worked in her own little references like the Batman below Killer Croc and above Harley Quinn. The background is this rose fabric. She has always loved that song "Kiss from a Rose" on the Batman Forever soundtrack.
