In Need of Repair

There's a site out there that acts like they've cornered the market on fandom quilts....

I've been a fangirl or one thing or another as long as I've quilted.  I made a Spiderman quilt for my son Zach over eight years ago.  It is one of my favorite quilts that I've ever made.  I really came into my quilting-own with the quilt.  (I also made a Strawberry Shortcake quilt for my daughter, Sarah, about the same time.)  I used paper piecing patterns to construct the blocks, even the tradtional blocks.  The quilt pattern wasn't my own and I didn't attribute the design on the quilt label....shame on me! I had both quilts professionally quilted by Top Quilters.  The silvery thread that was used is awesome!

For more of my first quilts go here and some opportunity quilts go here.

The kids quilts have been well loved.  When you give a quilt to a kid, you've got to figure that something is going to happen to make you cringe.  Sarah spilled nailpolish on her quilt.  Zachary ripped a patch in his that I've never fixed.

A friend suggested a long time ago that I fix it by placing a spider over the holes.

Today I'm going to machine applique a Spiderman logo spider.  Fortunately, the fabric is only ripped on the front of the quilt.  I think a spider will work...
