Superhero's.....


Young Jack is in the superhero mode - he loves dressing up as them and the action toys too ... and he is a bit of a superhero himself (in my nana opinion) .....

I have been working on these superhero blocks giving them some outlines in glow in the dark thread...

.. in this one the white on the glasses have been buttonholed with it and round the outside using a triple stitch ... and the same with the white patch and the J.....


.. again the mask in this one and around the edge of the lightening flash...


... all the blocks have a little bit on it....

This week I sewed the blocks together with the sashing.... 


... the stripes on the table is for the binding.....

don't they look great..... I need to go out and buy a bit of backing - then guess what I am doing in December????

The Superhero's quilt is one of the wonderful patterns in Toni's book Happy Quilts...

Thursday brought a once a month sewing morning ..... I am stitching more Christmas decorations.... 


tea in a pretty mug and some fresh baked scones with jam and cream helped.....

Righto, Gotto Go... the Wild Things want some attention now!

What a great quilt that will be - I've got the book coming for a Christmas present...no young ones who need a quilt...yet...but I can drool. I love the idea of the glow in the dark thread...would love to see a night time photo - if it shows up.

These are the best Superheroes group I've ever seen. Glow in the dark thread is a great touch. It adds even more fun into an already fun quilt. More points to you for using it. If you plan on giving these wonderful quilts on Christmas Day, I think it will be one of the grandchildren's best Christmas morning ever. These quilts are full of love and you're having a lot of fun making them and it shows. Fabulous job! The cup of tea is beautifully decorated. I love! Your stitchery is gorgeous as always. Enjoy! ;^)
