16 Corners Later.....The Super Hero Quilts are Done

Well maybe 17.....I did sew one with an empty bobbin.

It all started with my three year old, hero obsessed Grandson. Just pick up a panel or two (one for the front and one for the back) and add a little quilting.......easy peasy, right!!!!


I went all out with the quilting.......of course I did!!!!


I wanted to pick up on the spider web theme. Many hours later....there you have it. I kind of love it.

But meanwhile back at the ranch I received the news.........the granddaughters are into superheroes too. So, three more quilts to make..........Frozen on the front and Spider-man on the back.


There is no way I had time to spend hours quilting each girl's quilt......so I went to my old speedy stand-by. Yup, you guessed it, SPIRAL QUILTING!!!! By keeping the quilting lines further apart than my usual 1/2 inch distance I was able to quilt all three at about an hour per quilt.


I think the spiral looks great as well.


Also doing the bindings completely by machine is a time saver. Take a look at he wonderful stitch in the ditch attachment that comes with the Bernina Walking Foot....so fabulous for binding!!!!


To keep my interest up....a different binding for each quilt.


A label with each child's name in the corner and I'm done.....plus I threw them all in the wash and they crinkled up very nicely. Hmm, I could make gift bags for each quilt............I doubt that will happen, but you never know.
