Spidey ~ A Finished Quilt

Spidey Quilt : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Despite this lingering flu turned cold, I finished the Spidey quilt! (I apologize in advance if this post is a bit delirious!) I rallied on Tuesday night and quilted it, then added the binding on Wednesday morning. Who says you can’t pair Spiderman fabric with Denyse Schmidt and Anna Maria Horner? I think it turned out pretty cute!

Unfortunately it was a cold and dreary day, and the ground is still wet with the remnants of 5 inches of Spring snow we had on Monday. I wanted to get some better pictures before gifting it yesterday afternoon, but just didn’t have the opportunity to go anywhere besides my deck.

I mentioned in my last post that I used the same design as my Aye Aye Captain quilt. The rectangles are cut 3″ x 10″ and there are 6 columns and 24 rows. Like the Aye Aye Captain quilt, I rounded the corners of this quilt. I just love that look! I simply turned a bowl upside down and used it to mark the corners and cut. When rounding your corners, the only thing you need to remember is to use bias cut binding so it will curve nicely around those edges. (I learned that the hard way early on into quilting).

This time I quilted it on each side of the seams, about 1/2″ away. I just used the edge of my foot as a guide. The backing is a navy blue minky. A few of you asked if I use batting still when I make a quilt with minky. I do! I really like the weight of a quilt with a lightweight batting (I use Quilter’s Dream Request Loft) and minky.

And you can see from the quilting, it has a nice “poof” to it as well. I just use a lot of pins when basting – about one every 3 inches – and make sure the pressure of my foot when quilting is adjusted to not be super heavy. I adjusted my BERNINA 750QE pressure setting from 50 to 0 when quilting this quilt.

    I love the mix of the Spiderman fabric with the designer quilting fabrics! My brain didn’t see the route to that until I saw this beauty. Was just tinkering with the idea of a rounded corner finish on one of my WIPs; thanks for the timely inspiration!

    Love Spidey and love the original Aye Aye Captain. A simple layout with big wow factor! I hope you don’t mind that I’ve put a Spidey/Aye Aye Captain inspired quilt on my To-Do list. Thank you for sharing your talents.

    I learned that rounding edges of a quilt backed with minky is the only way to go….I also like the finished look of it.

    I love the designer fabric with Spiderman. It gives a rather upscale or quality look, yet still fun for kids! Great idea. And the rounded corners are perfect.

    I LOVE the look of this quilt. That is awesome for a themed quilt. Will definitely try. I am too afraid to quilt something myself with minky, I will probably use flannel. Thanks for the fabulous idea!

    Faith, I love the rounded corners too. Your recipient of Spidey must be quite special and certainly will cherish, in cold weather and warm too:) Thank you for sharing, hope you are feeling much better and that it soon warms up there in WI.

    Thank you! I HAD to buy the spiderman material for my granddaughter (she is spidey’s #1 fan), but I didn’t know how I wanted to turn it into a quilt, I now know, and hope you don’t mind that I am going to be copying you. She is going to love it.
