WIP Wednesday 12/26/2012

Corky the Corgi
Created for Think Christmas Blog Hop (August 2012)
Altered photo printed to fabric - details here
Mostly from stash
12.5" square
Original design
Completed 12/25/2012

Got the crazy idea to use a sweater as backing. Picked up this child's sweater at a thrift store for $3.

Used the back for the backing

Cut a large piece of sweater, spray basted the quilt top and sweater together. No batting needed. Proceeded as usual to quilt and bind.

Back of the quilt
Corners are Fast Finish Triangles. I put yardstick-shaped pieces of wood top and bottom and hang from a Command hook to display on the wall.

My next project is a Superman-themed quilt for a friend who is a Superman fan.

I've had the Superman fabric for many months. I picked up two new fabrics the other day:  yellow letters, since my friend is a writer; red and yellow stars. Not shown: stash piece of black music on white background, as my friend is a musician.

Here is the Superman quilt I made for my son Robbie a couple of years ago.
I didn't want to duplicate so I'm using a different design and different fabrics.

Be sure to check out my New Year giveaway, which ends January 1. One lucky winner will be drawn the next day.
