Because every boy needs the cover of a superhero sometimes ...
Next up in my parade of grandchildren's quilts is this one for a six-year-old aspiring superhero! Super-fun to make, I only wish I'd been able to locate a greater variety of superhero fabrics at the time. This one was completed after our rainy fall season had begun, here it is draped over towels on our wet deck rail.
The August FMQ Challenge tutorial by Wendy Sheppard was a little overall motif she called Jester's Hat, and it was absolutely perfect for this quilt! The Jesters appear in each of the theme blocks as well as the dark blue border. This was my first experiment using a variegated thread for quilting, and I think it worked well against the dark background.
I loved the way the gold/yellow background fabric popped with the outline quilting:
A bit of the back:
Quilted with Aurifil 50 wt. for both top and bobbin, with a low loft poly batting. This quilt was totally fun to make, and was yet another great practice piece for the FMQ skills we learned during SewCalGal's FMQ Challenge this year!
