The Super Hero Quilt

Back in October I wrote a blog post about a paper pieced quilt block that I was interested in (see it here.)  Since then I've done a couple more blocks which were my contribution to the quilt that the Block Lotto members put together as a thank you to our fearless leader Sophie.  You can check it out at Sophie's blog, Sophie Junction.
Here are the 2 blocks I contributed for that project:

Well I decided I wanted to try designing my own paper pieced star.  This is my first drawing, that I made on my iPad.

Then my partner Chris played with the block and came up with a color scheme.

And here is my first attempt at sewing it together.  The points don't all line up as well as I'd like.  But I think its a pretty good effort for my first try!

The first picture on this post is Chris' vision of the whole layout for what he calls the "Super Hero Quilt" because of the color scheme.  I think he did a great job!  Whatcha think?


  1. I love the Super Hero quilt ... it made me think of Wonder Woman. If Wonder Woman was a quilter, she'd make this quilt ;-)

  2. WOW! What a complex looking block! I'm not sure I would have the patience for all of that! I'm an instant gratification kinda girl! Kudos to ya! you did a great job!!
