Oh yeah, I’m a wee bit tired of looking at the super hero fabric but the husband said,
“HOW ABOUT MAKING A SUPER HERO QUILT FOR THE AUCTION IN SEPTEMBER?”
The cash-ola will support a children’s home that is very dear to us, so of course I will make another Super-Hero quilt. In reality, this is number four. Husband has his and there are two others for a couple little boys that are special to me. So number four is in the works!
I started out making four patch units with these two fabrics. I suppose I could have gone with more subdued, dramatic colors….but I didn’t. After so much “hero” fabric, with the blues and dark colors, I wanted something flashy! Now that I think about it, I think these might be Flash Gordon colors. Without even trying, I’m in the zone!
Here are the hero fabrics (sigh). They are cut to 4.5″ wide x 10″ long. Yes, this is another MSQS pattern. This one is called Four Patch Frenzy. Jenny used a layer cake, but I used yardage, there are about 6-8 pieces of each print, and I had about 13 prints.
After prepping the four-patches, they are sewn onto the cut pieces. Easy peasy. Just had to make sure the four patches were all sewn on the same way. After a bit I tried to pay attention to directional fabrics, but it got to be too much of a hassle so I stopped.
Here are most of the “blocks.” Yes, this easy peasy unit is called a block! After reading the instructions in my most recent (I think) BLOCK magazine, I realized I could probably get all the (5) rows (of 15) together today. And once I got that done, I could probably slap the rows together too!
So I did.
I did have one little boy in mind as I was sewing. He goes to my church and talks Avengers with my husband all the time……
I’d kind of like him to have it.
We shall see.
