Stephen King: The Dark Tower Series Art Quilt

My husband really loves the Dark Tower Series books by Stephen King. So much so, that he was going to get a tattoo of the K in a circle which I guess is like a language in the books or something... I'm not sure because I still haven't read the books!

Anyway, with a new baby coming and the car accident and rental car and new vehicle we just don't have extra money for a tattoo right now, so I decided to make his this art quilt.

Because I have never read the books I had to Google KA (the K in a circle) and then I looked at some of the book covers to get an idea of what to do.

I rough sketched the tower, the rose is a clipart from the internet.

I am a little nervous... my husband is very supportive of this sewing/quilting hobby of mine but I've never really made anything for him other than a solid black & red NOOK cover. Nothing fancy. I really hope he likes this!!! I'm sure he will though.

If you're wondering where I learned to make quilts like this, I took a Craftsy course called "Pictorial Techniques", taught by Wendy Butler Berns. (<-- This is an affiliate link.

It was her class and her teaching that helped me make my Getting Along quilt (as seen in the sidebar) which won the 2013 Army Arts & Crafts contest!!
