It's a Bird! It's a Plane!

Today was supposed to be my sew-all-day-without-a-little-person-around-to-interrupt-me day. Alas I also had to take the car to the dealership for an undercoating check and a squeaky heater motor, and then I had to go get a new screw for my sunglasses because one arm fell off. It turned into a three-hours-without-a-little-person day but that is better than nothing, I guess!

Here is my progress on my Superhero quilt, destined for a little boy who turns five in April.
This is the best I could do. I tried taking this picture by laying it out on my bed and then standing on the bed to take the picture.
The fabric is adorable- Batman and Superman. This is a quilt kit from my LQS and the fabric is all flannelette.
Here is a little hint at the back.
 Now I am deciding about batting. The original pattern does not call for any, but this little boy loves snuggly blankets. Also, I have never quilted a quilt without batting. How would that work exactly? I guess it will come down to my comfort level, so I put my money on batting.

I will try to use the remaining few days of holiday to fit in as much sewing as I can (squished in with motherly duties).

  1. My stepmom hand quilted a quilt without batting... It was just really thin and I thought stupid for use for any warmth. It was like paper thin.
