Can I have a drum roll, please…………..

And give you a Friday Finish on Thursday…..and the end of the “Super Hero Saga”!!!!!………………. 013014

These are #5, #6, & #7 of the series that began wa-a-a-a-y back in May with an idea for a cute little gift quilt for a young man by the name of Jaxson (link) and I was “hooked” on these panels!!!! Totally enamored!!!!! Multiples!!!! Not me!!! Oh, but yes!!!! So, numerous treks back to River Road Quilt Shop (La Crosse,WI) and, over time, bought the rest of the panels (even the one on display, which was so generously donated by Betty, one of the wonderful gals there!).

If you would want to follow the journey of these little quilts, merely put the words “Super Hero” in the search box on the right side bar of my blog.

Some photos of the last in this series…………001 002 004

The backing fabric is awesome, too!!!!

The top 2 photos show the finished quilts with binding and having been washed and dried……..soft, crinkly and awesome! Note: Click on any of the above photos to enlarge.

Other than the very first of this series (Jaxson’s), these are all destined for the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, MN.

All of these quilts used Glide (poly), 40wt, thread for the top, and Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70 wt, for the bobbin. The batting is a low loft poly purchased from JoAnn Fabrics. The panels are from Robert Kaufman fabrics and, after some searching, I discovered that the black background version must not be available any longer. There seem to be others that are, however, and the pattern is a free download from the Kaufman site.

I thank you all for enduring(?) this somewhat redundant groupings of blog posts and, unless I’m smitten with another such project, would probably not be repeating such multiples!!!!! LOl!!

    I’ve said this before but I think these quilts are going to make some children very happy. They look fabulous. Now you will have to get back to the one off quilts, for a while at least. 😉

      I was aiming for something a wee bit different from the “standard” quilt…..and these kids are definitely “super heroes”!!!!!!! (along with the families!)

    And for such a worthy cause! Way to go. I too have some quilts I need to get down there.

  7. You are owed multiple thanks for generously creating these quilts for young cancer patients. Bless you!

  8. Thanks for taking on this project. The kids who endure severe illnesses are indeed heroes, as are the family members and friends and volunteers and medical staff… and all who care for them.
