Millefiori Quilt

When I saw Willyne Hammerstein’s quilt many years ago, I knew I had to do it! The pattern was beautiful, although I didn’t really like the colours she used. That’s the great thing about quilting. You can change things up and make it your own.

I finished this quilt March 29, 2016. (I can’t believe I haven’t looked at my blog in that long!)
Here are a few photos to show how it came together.

Superheroes Quilt

My son was turning 9 and loved Marvel superheroes. He also told me it was time I made him a new quilt.  So I made one for him he could treasure forever. (I know if my husband had this quilt when he was young he would have held on to it forever!)

I started with a Pinterest search of marvel superhero paper piecing patterns. These images are copyrighted, so the lovely person who made these patterns cannot get paid for them. She has generously put them on the internet for everyone to use! A simple search will turn up almost any character you can think of. 

Here are some really bad iPhone photos that show how it came together.
