Cast Your Vote
Outstanding drama and comedy series are some of the highest honors at the Emmy Awards. The following quilts are inspired by this year's nominations. Which gets your pick?
Drama Series: Breaking Bad
Chemistry is all about mixing the right amount of ingredients together. This quilt combines prints and batiks in a wall quilt you'll be addicted to making. Best of all, Walter White would approve of you sewing in your underwear.
Drama Series: Downton Abbey
Fabrics from the Downton Abbey collection by Andover Fabrics effortlessly bring texture and contrast to this fresh wall hanging. We have a feeling that Lady Sybil would've picked this quilt out for her room!
Drama Series: Game of Thrones
If you watch Game of Thrones, you know winter is coming. This throw features prints of evergreen and icy blue that Jon Snow could use to warm himself while fighting at The Wall.
Drama Series: House of Cards
This quilt is patriotic on the surface, but will reveal some "curve"balls as you're piecing. We have a feeling Frank Underwood could relate.
Drama Series: Mad Men
We're giving a nod to 1960's fashion with a paisley print. We can picture Megan Draper wearing an outfit to her next audition that would match this perfectly!
Drama Series: True Detective
If True Detective had you on the hunt for the Yellow King, don't fret. We found him! This yellow and black throw is perfect for covering a king-size bed.
Comedy Series: Louie
The quilt is as quirky and offbeat as Louie. Plus, the black-and-white table runner reminds us of the twinkle on stage while Louie does his stand-up gigs.
Comedy Series: Modern Family
"Gotta fix that step" will be a line of the past when you make this wall quilt with an easy stair-step pattern. The black-and-white background gets a "modern" twist with a pop of red.
Comedy Series: Orange Is the New Black
A mismatch of loud orange and tan prints surprisingly combine beautifully in this quilt -- just like the ladies in Federal Prison. The kaledoscope effect mimics our ever-changing opinion of the show's characters (hey, we couldn't hate Alex forever!).
Comedy Series: Silicon Valley
In Silicon Valley it's all about having the right code (and this quilt looks like a QR code to us). One algorithm change in fabrics and the block creates a whole new look. You can even pull an all-nighter like Richard to create this.
Comedy Series: The Big Bang Theory
This wall quilt definitely looks like a big bang! You'll need to make a roomate agreement to keep others from stealing this quilt. And we think Sheldon would appreciate the exact color plament and piecing this quilt requires.
Comedy Series: VEEP
Selina may strive to be the "People's Vice President", but this quilt was voted the "People's Patriotic Quilt." It's so easy that anyone can make it, no matter their skill level!
