This Marvel Comics Quilt marks my last completed quilt of this past year! I made it from start to finish in about ten hours, beginning one night after dinner, working until late, wrapping it up the next day by early afternoon. I actually finished just in time to gift it to it's recipient, my nephew Ben, on the night I gave out all the quilts! Phew!
It's made using my go-to quilt as you go method and is improv pieced in a similar way to how I assembled both Owen's Ant Farm & Jacob's Stitched Typography quilts. Most of the Marvel Comic prints I ordered online and the rest of the fabrics are blenders from my stash. This is definitely one of those quilts that's so fun to look at up close, especially if you're a comic book fan!
At first the quilt front was pieced together without the black solid, but I decided it really needed the break from all the busy happening with the superhero patchwork front and the comic book cover backing!
The Marvel Comics Comic Lineup print I found for the back was the big favorite overall and it also had the best feel, which is so important to me! Sometimes these licensed novelty fabrics look really great but they lack a little on quality, but not this one!
I chose a bright medium blue stripe for the binding. This perfect stripe is the Hello Pilgrim Stripe in Blue by the very awesome Lizzy House. I really love stripey binding!
Now that I've shared my last finished quilt and before I begin a new year of quilt making, I do want to look back one last time at all the quilts I made in 2013. I grew so much as a quilter, and I think the best way to see how much is for me to write one last post, sharing all of them in one place. Hopefully you're up for it!
