Superhero triangle quilt

Superhero triangle quilt


After the prettiness of Small Niece’s quilt, I decided to make a Superhero quilt for her brother, who is nine.  I chose Wake, a pattern from Modern Triangle Quilts by Rebecca Bryan.  I didn’t stick to the block placement, instead going with whatever fitted the fussy cut superheros.


The other fabrics are a variety of cityscapes, graphic designs and space images, with Moda grunge for the plain triangles.


The back is pieced from the larger pieces of fabric I had left over.  I found out half way through making the quilt that my nephew’s favourite colour is turquoise, so I bound it in turquoise to bring out that colour.


Modern Triangle Quilts is a great book.  The block instructions are clear, with a good mix of foundation and regular piecing and there are lots of ideas on putting the blocks together into different designs.

I didn’t manage to get a good picture of my nephew with his quilt, but my sister says he is enjoying snuggling up under it and reading his books.
