TGIFF: Super Heroes and Princesses

7:00:00 AM

Well, the Christmas rush is on.

I've been madly trying to finish a ton of stuff for the kids - most of it has been in some stage just shy of completion for months now. Feels good to finally finish a bunch of stuff!

Two of my most recent quilty finishes are kind of - well - cheater finishes - heheh.

I used two quilt panels to create minky-backed throws for the kid's cuddle time on the couch.

For my 2 year old son, who is absolutely nutters for *anything* comics -

The quilt finishes in at about 32" x 44". I used a 100% cotton batting, and bound it with a royal blue Kona I had left over from his baby quilt.

I backed it with a butter yellow minky -

I am still working on my free motion quilting abilities - so don't judge too much. But I had a lot of fun with it, practicing. 

I used an Aurifil 50wt in royal blue, and I think it turned out pretty well!

Along the top of the quilt I free motion quilted the words "SUPER HERO EWAN":

For the girl, of course it had to be princesses -

I backed this one with a lavender minky, and bound it in a coordinating Kona-

...and I used a baby pink Aurifil 50wt to quilt this one -

...and, across the top I quilted "PRINCESS AUDREY".

I think they are going to be a huge hit this Christmas! Super excited to give them to them!

I'm linking up my finishes to TGIFF - Iris at Crazy Dutch Bird Quilts is hosting today!
