Captain America

In our house Super-Heroes are the name of the game! .... and this quilt came in to be quilted.... the boys DID NOT want to let it go!!

As a matter of face, they tried to convince the topper - Jessica - that they would be happy to keep the quilt for her!!

Here is the full view of the quilt.
Notice the border fabric - it is ALL Captain America.

In the middle of each of the Cream colored sections, I quilted a Captain America Shield.
You all know you can NOT have Capt. America without his shield!!!

And in the Blues I quilted a lot of swirls.
The Big Captain America Border got Shields quilted in it, 
and the smaller borders received their own treatment. 

My favorite is the center of the cream fabrics. That shield was so fun to do, and of course, all the men in my house thought it was awesome.

The back!!  You always have to check out the back of a quilt! 
Especially when the back is a solid color.

And just in case you didn't get to see the Captain America Shield.... here it is... one more time!

This quilt was pieced by Jessica at JMV Quilts in Denver, and of course, quilted by me!

I am linking up to Finished Fridays over at  and

Have a great Friday!!!

I can see why your boys would want to keep it!

That's tooo funny. However, since all your gentleman are faster, stronger and smarter than Captain America, I'm sure they'll recover in due time.

Alycia, the quilt is beautiful! and I'm sure my niece will love it! Tell the boys again how sorry I am that they couldn't keep it, but it is for a special little girl at Christmas. You are awesome, dear friend! Enjoyed sharing lunch with you and the boys this week! They grow up so fast.
