[completed] granny superhero quilt

Ages ago, I finally finished this old work-in-progress quilt. It was even partially quilted, so I finished quilting it with wavy lines in red thread, and bound it in a navy and white polka dot print.


I used a granny square pattern with Marvel superheroes at the center of each block. The background fabric is a subtle black-on-black print. One block pops with a yellow background, and solid red and orange strips of fabric surround the off-set blocks.

The back of the quilt is a red-white-and-blue polka dot print with a strip of extra squares surrounded by solid red.

I think this is a great, fun quilt for a boy (or girl!) who loves superheroes. 

Finished size: 45x60 inches, a perfect crib or small throw size.

[completed] mod beads quilt

Awhile ago, I finished another WIP quilt. This mod beads/garland quilt (made of snowball blocks) was another long-time work in progress. It feels good to have it done at last!

I quilted loop-de-loops across the quilt in a light green thread. It was fast and fun to quilt.

I backed the quilt in a fun green and blue and orange print, and used a "cheater binding" (folding the back of the quilt over to the front) to avoid making the quilt even busier.

I think this is a pretty cute, cheerful quilt!

Finished size: 40x50

[completed] dare to be different

Awhile ago, I finished another long-time work in progress. This one is my "dare to be different" quilt, made of several different yellow fabrics and one pop of a teal print fabric.

I quilted swirls and spirals. I was going to do something more angular, but decided that the quilt needed the addition of spiraling quilting to soften it.

I bound the quilt in two colors - a yellow and a light teal.

The back of this quilt is a light orange-on-yellow stripe. The white quilting shows up nicely on the back!

I am really pleased with how this quilt turned out. It's cheery and awesome.

Finished size: 45x60"
