Work In Progress Wednesday, Superhero Style

I've been really busy on a client project this week but managed to make a little progress on the superhero baby quilt.  Okay, my husband made progress on it while I was working on my client project, but I was in the same room and offered suggestions.  He cut out the freezer paper for pressing under the edges of the appliques, and cut out some windows for the daytime buildings.  Now maybe I can teach him how to use monofilament to actually do the applique...

Here's the daytime half, with appliques pinned roughly in place.  The Daily Planet is finally in this edition as well, although it looks more like a blob right now.

Here's Thor, ready to fight some bad guys.  Too bad the fabric doesn't look more like Chris Hemsworth... =)
My bargello is still on the back burner, but I've finally decided on fabric for my EZ Dresden post June 12th.  I ordered some Joel Dewberry Heirloom in Sapphire from an etsy shop, and I hope it gets here really soon!  It's a good thing I've got one of the later dates in the hop so I can be ready.  The blog hop starts FRIDAY at and there will be PRIZES!  Be sure to check it out.  I'll be sharing more details on Friday too.

Head over to Freshly Pieced for Work in Progress Wednesday!


  1. I love your superhero quilt! :)

  2. My 6 year old would be all over that superhero quilt. very into comic books right now!

  3. Hello, I saw this quilt last night at the SLMQG meeting and it looks fantastic. I am new to quilting so have a lot of questions but I will limit it to one. You talked about using freezer paper for pressing under the edges of the appliques. My wife loves appliques but we are not really sure how to properly secure them down.


Thank you for taking time to leave a comment! They make my day!
