“Super Hero” returns (TBT?)………….

The story began wa-a-a-a-ay back here. The birth of a Super Hero began quietly enough in a peaceful rural setting on a ridge top outside a small Minnesota town. He progressed quickly, from inspiration………..005006007 

to sketch book…………….001

to thread and cloth………………………………009

He performed “super” well, even through his first ‘bath’…011(no bleeding whatsoever!)

012013014015

A quick shot of the perfect backing…………………….016

The obligatory label (an ‘orphan block’ applied to the backing before sandwiching and quilted in)………………….017

And the “big picture”…………………………”Super Hero” all grown up………………………..019

Thread used, top and bobbin: Glide (most awesome) Trilobal Polyester, 40 wt.010 (the “Cool Grey” blended beautifully with the backing ‘chambray/denim look’ background!)

Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly (80/20)

This little (40”x 50”) quilt will be gifted to a young man who is in love with his grandpa’s red tractor and spends hours on this country “convertible”!!!!

The weekend is ahead and a time at the river awaits, along with a quilt show set-up tomorrow morning in Spring Grove, MN. Hopefully, there will be a photo recap soon. Til then, blessings…………………

      Oooo, Lin, it’s so soft and crinkly…..you wouldn’t believe it!!!!! Keeping the stitching more open is a difficult task for someone who really enjoys the “more the better” approach to quilting!!!!! LOL!!!
