Super Hero Quilt - Finished!!

My friend asked me the other day when I was going to blog about my finished super hero quilt, and it was then that I realized that I never shared this finished quilt with you. You have seen all of the pieces as they have been coming together, but not the finished quilt.
My boy loves this quilt and that makes me love it that much more! Here it is on his bed, he is on the bottom bunk, which does not take very good pictures so I apologize about that. You can kind of see some of the super hero symbols that I sewed into the blue triangles, but you can read more about them back here.
The triangles are super big, which is perfect for him because he loves to look at the fabric and point things out that he sees. (Some of this super hero fabric would be good for an I-spy quilt!)
Here is the binding and background fabric. I love the red stripe against the bright blue. I used minky for the back, as per my sons request. Or button fabric as my kids like to call it.
I quilted this with just straight lines along the print borders and then a triangle arc on the print triangle. I wanted to keep it simple and I think this did the trick. You can tell I forgot about this - I even had all my photos taken back when it was nice outside and you could see the grass. Now it is negative 20 and the grass will not be seen for another 5 months.
And another picture:
Here you can see the quilting and the backing.
And all rolled up with that beautiful stripe showing!
I hope that you all are enjoying this Christmas season and staying warm!

Enjoy!
Pin It! \

  5. What a super cool quilt (excuse the pun)! I love the design, great to see something a bit different. (And wow, no grass for five months??? I cannot imagine that! I live in the coldest part of NZ but we did not even get an inch of snow this winter, much to the kids' disappointment as it was forecasted about three times!) Have Merry, white Christmas!!

  7. Great quilt...with or without the super hero fabric! I just finished a quilt with Minky on the back and with batting. It is very soft and heavy. Did you use batting on this quilt?

    1. Thank you Kathy, I did use batting because we live in ND and it gets so cold here and so I wanted this quilt to be as warm and cozy as possible!
