I have been so excited to reveal this finish. So without all the story behind it, here it is!!!!
Now onto the story :) This time the Project Modern Challenge was to create a Monocramatic quilt. About a week after this challenge was posted I got an email from my Sister-In-Law saying that they found out that they baby they are expecting is going to be a little girl. They have 3 little boys already and this is their last one so they were super excited to find out they were finally going to get their little girl. Now these three previously mentioned little brothers love Super Heroes. They can't get enough of Batman, Spiderman, and especially Superman. So, wanting this new little bundle of joy to fit right in, my Sister-In-Law asked me if I could make her a Supergirl quilt.
As soon as I saw that request I started smiling to myself. I instantly knew what I wanted to do and that it would be perfect for a monochromatic quilt. You know how you just get that picture in your head. Then it was just figuring out how to take that picture from my head and turn it into a design of a superman logo in a scrappy strip setting all in pink. Super cute!!!
I knew I wanted the logo to really pop so I decided to do it in light tones of pink. And then I decided to use the dark tones of pink for the background to really make it stand out. I was so happy with the result when it was all pieced together. I decided to take the whole pop idea one step further by only quilting the background in a super small loopy pattern so that the symbol just jumps off the blanket. I am so happy with the finished results.
This quilt just fits my Sister-In-Law and her family just so perfectly!! I got to give it to her and my brother this last week while I was in Utah. And to say they loved it would be a vast understatement. I wish I would have remembered my camera when I gave it to them :)
So in conclusion . . . . This quilt was a blast to design, sew, and quilt. It will be greatly loved by it's new little owner that will be arriving in a few short months and her whole family. Does it get any better than that??
