Final 2013 Finish (A): Baby Ewan's Superman Quilt

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

I know it's a little late, but I finally got a chance to get outside, with my mum's help, to photograph my last few finishes of 2013. 

As a lot of my readers know, I welcomed my second babe, Ewan, in November. My husband insisted on a Superman theme for the nursery, and of course, I had to make a quilt...

Here's the result:
...the print I used are actual images of comic book covers from the original Superman comics which I fussy-cut and framed. I backed the quilt in nice, fuzzy, warm minky cuddle fur.

And look at this quilting:
...Melissa over at Sew Shabby Quilting quilted rocket ships and stars into the quilt, a pattern my husband chose. He said it would 'fit' the theme of the quilt - something about Superman coming to Earth in a rocket ship from Krypton?

Ewan, 5 days old.
The only problem with a minky-backed quilt is that now my daughter wants one!

  10. That pattern is a great way to showcase a special print--I hadn't thought of that use for it before. And the quilt clearly has Ewan's approval. Adorable.

  12. That photo of Ewan is just precious!

    Minky backed?? Did you quilt on a long arm or a domestic?? I've wanted to give it a try, but wondered how much that minky slipped when used as a backing.

  13. Hi
    He is so cute and super cute. I love the way he is sleeping on his stomach with his bottom up in the air on his cool quilt. extra kisses to the kiddos for their cuteness.
