Marvel Quilt (2021)

I have used Obsessively Stitching’s First Quilt Ever pattern nearly a dozen times now, including back in 2015 when I made a version for a friend who was expecting her first child.

Late in 2020 she mentioned to that her younger son, who was three or so at the time, was a bit jealous of his big brother’s quilt. So clearly the answer was to make another! His only request was Marvel. Luckily I had some on-theme fabric in stash and when January rolled around and my no-buy for 2020 finished up I set out to grab some coordinating material and make yet another version of my favorite pattern.

Scrunch Test

Scrappy Binding (my favorite part)

A matching mini boxy pouch for his mama

And because it’s me, a doll dress out of some scraps


That’s bright and cheerful looking!

This is great, I especially love the scrappy binding

What a sweet gift!

Colorful quilt for a child! I also love how you seemed to make use of all the leftover fabrics!

Something for everyone. The zippered pouch is nice with the pop of orange zipper!

So cool! Love the striped binding. And hey, I have that same fabric that you used for the backing.

What a lucky little kiddo! He must treasure this cool quilt. Add me to the chorus singing the praises of the scrappy binding, too. I also love the photo of it over the snowy fence!

Wow, that looks amazing! The scrappy binding is so great too.

So colorful and lively! Great fabrics for a fun theme. Yep, the binding is wonderful!

That was so nice of you to make the brother a quilt too. It’s very bright and cheery. Love that doll dress too! Sewing tiny is hard!

I love the Marvel-but-not-overwhelming-Marvel thing you have going on, here. It’s perfect.

What a fun and colorful quilt! I like the variety of coordinating fabrics. Is the purple fabric flannel?

How handy that you have a quilt pattern up your sleeve and ready to go whenever you need to make a quilt!

Lovely quilt!! That scrappy binding is super!!
Nice mini boxy pouch!! (what do people normally keep in those?) and cute doll dress!! :smiley:

@AudiobookLover The purple isn’t flannel but it sure likes it in pictures. It was kind of a sponge print look and became a little more distressed once it had been laundered.

@Harlan That’s one of the issues of little pouches - they look cute but aren’t exactly the most practical. I keep my earbuds in mine, but the size is also perfect for lindor truffles :wink:


but not * enough * lindor truffles!! :wink:
