“Two”sday……..

That is to say, “Super Hero 2” Tuesday! Yup! The suggestion was made by Audrey (of Minnesota Prairie Roots blog), in reference to my “Super Hero 1” quilt (links here), that this panel would make a good quilt for a cancer child. Duh!!! How right is that!!!! So, another panel purchase was needed and additional hero fabric for a complement. I found some “Superman” fabric, along with some great “Hot Wheels” fabric at a small Mabel (MN) quilt shop called “Krazy Kwiltz”……..

The yellow (above) will be the binding. The top is together……………….

And the “Super Man” fabric, coupled with some red Kona, is working well!

Once again, the stitching motif will be a “Swirls” variation appropriate for all heroes!!!!   051 

Thread (top and bobbin) is Glide, 40 wt but this time I’m using a lightweight all-poly batting as this quilt is destined for a Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, MN.

Spring is definitely here and the planting season is almost completed. Soybeans will be the planting of choice in our front fields (we rent out our tillable acreage). One of the front fields is a mere 2 (maybe) acres, yet it was planted using these pieces of equipment!!!!!!

This was a bit humorous to watch as the operator had to back up in order to make the turn!!!!! I think it may have taken 1+ passes to finish the job!!!! Definitely “overkill” but so perfect for some of the huge fields they rent elsewhere!!! So much for “country humor”.

Back to the machine and a finish very soon……………………..

  1. Oh, Doreen, I am humbled that you would take my suggestion and run (I mean, sew) with it. I just know you are going to make some little person incredibly happy with a Super Hero quilt. You are an angel!
