When I was first drawing up my KaBam Quilt Pattern I was trying to design an explosion from a comic book. So hence the name KaBam! I drew this up probably a year ago and was hoping to make a King size quilt eventually for my bed.
When I found out my sister in law was having a boy and the babies room was going to be star/galaxy/star wars theme. I thought this design would be perfect for his room! The parents said they liked the dark side. So for them it is a planet exploding from a Death Star. But I also think it looks like a huge star.
I went searching in the Stash Fabrics store to find the perfect fabrics.
Blue (Background) – Figo Fabrics – Shooting stars in Blue
Red – Gingiber –Blizzard in Berry
Red/Orange – Alison Glass – Cross stitch Tiger
Orange – Robert Kaufman Fabrics – Zest in Cedar
Dark Yellow – Dear Stella – Dash Flow in Amber
Bright Yellow –Dear Stella – Moonscape in Banana
I wanted to pick an ombre of colors for the star/explosion.
I used Warm and Plush cotton batting to make it a little more poofy. For the quilting I decided to outline the star/explosion. Then in the dead space I echoed the shape out every 1 3/4 inches. This gave the quilt great texture and a cool design in the dead space.
For the backing fabric I found this super cute star fabric by P&B Textiles – Winter Lights Star Dot Blue/Navy Fabric
The binding is half of the Dark Yellow and half of the Bright yellow.
I love how it turned out and was so happy to give this one to my new nephew.
This quilt pattern is great for the adventurous beginner to intermediate quilter. The pattern comes with labels to keep you organized!
The KaBam pattern comes in a Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen and King size!
