Dylan's Super Hero quilt is done. Happy Dance! I used the Heart Strings Square instructions posted on Mary Johnson's website.
I pressed the seams open, free motion quilted all of the quilt with gray thread and used a number 10 embroidery needle with 5 threads of floss to tie the squares where they met. I avoided these thick parts when I did the fmq with my domestic sewing machine because I was afraid I might break the needle.
I didn't have enough red with white polka dots for the binding. Rats. But I did have enough strips with polka dots in my fabric stash. Polka dots and strips ... what's not to love.
Hope Dylan likes his quilt :D
