Jimmy's Superhero Quilt


High above the city..


the Superheroes assemble!


Na-na na-na na-na na-na
BATMAN! 
And Robin and Green Lantern and Iron Man and Hulk and Superman and Thor and Spiderman and Captain Americaaaa!


The quilt backing is two different superhero fabrics.


With the leftovers, I made a couple of pillowcases.


I'm so happy with how this quilt turned out!
I've been wanting to make a pixelated quilt for a long time, so making this was a lot of fun to try. I used up almost all of my solids stash.

This quilt was definitely time consuming, from cutting to sewing, each block took about 3 hours to complete. The characters are big too, 19" x 28". After debating about how to put them together, I decided to frame each block with a thin black border to make them look like a comic strip. 
I quilted it on my machine and my lines are REALLY "organic" in places, haha!! Machine quilting is not my forte, so don't zoom in too close, ok?


The Robin block is my favorite. I think it's his fun green mask! So cute!


This quilt measures 66" x 87" 
It is, quite possibly, my favorite thing ever!! It makes me so happy and I really hope Jimmy likes it, too.
I can't wait to give it to Jimmy for his birthday party tomorrow! 

It's gonna be SUPER! :)
