Don't wait for a superhero




If you would like to stitch your own superhero, click on the picture below. Save it to your computer. On my computer, I do this by right clicking and choosing "Save picture as".



Print it out and trace the shape and words onto tracing paper or directly onto light fabric. Do notice that the words and image are crammed together to fit onto one page. My quilt is free motion embroidered using “Quilt & tear on a roll” (old roll; looks like it may not be available anymore). For you Norwegians, this is very similar to matpapir.



Make a sandwich by layering top, batting and backing. The wind-effect is made by stitching curvy lines all over the sandwich before doing the embroidery.



Pin the paper on top of the sandwich if you are using paper. Stitch by hand or sewing machine. Remove the paper carefully; tweezers are quite handy for those tiny little pieces. Add another round of stitching or two depending on which thread you have been using.



I would love to see your hero too!



Enjoy:)

  1. Many thanks for the download. I am about to make my two 14 year old granddaughters a quilt with images of fun at the cottage through the years and this needs to be on it. Bev

  4. Thanks for the pattern, MM. I'm thinking it'd be great as a card for my very shy grandgirl.

  5. Så flott motiv! Den kurshelgen din så veldig fristende ut, men det blir nok vanskelig for meg. Men jeg skal tipse medlemmene i Molde, og så har jeg lagt link inn på laget sin blogg.

  7. I absolutely love your SuperHero quilt Nina Lise, thanks for sharing your pattern and technique. I am just getting into freehand sewing on my old machine and although I don't have the proper foot, find that the darning setting gives me similar results. I'm still learning and practicing but am really enjoying it. Who knows, one day I may be able to attempt something like your fabulous quilt!
