A quilt for my newest grandson

My daughter is expecting a baby boy in September.  She had her baby shower a few days ago and this is the gift from me.  The baby’s room is being decorated in Superman theme.

I machine appliqued the symbol.  I did simple meandering over the whole thing but changed thread colors.

I pieced the backing using the same fabrics.  I plan to make her a pillowcase with a smaller symbol before the baby arrives.

I did a machine binding with red fabric and a tiny flange of yellow.

My daughter loved the quilt and was very surprised.

I did all over meandering because the quilt will be used and washed many times.

        Good. Band season is starting and we’re all super busy. Will soon be cool enough in the evenings to wrap myself in one of your quilts to keep warm while we watch the kids perform. Ben usually has a small one he takes on the bus with him.
