At the end of March, my friend Brandon had a son but after 24 hours, he and his wife Hillary discovered that their little Logan had Tetralogy of Fallot. This congenital heart defect statistically only happens in 1 out of every 2518 babies born in the US and happens when a baby’s heart does not form correctly as the baby grows and develops during pregnancy.
My friend and his wife were incredibly strong through the past 2 months of staying in the NICU, surgeries, and the uncertainty of what would happen. Thankfully this past week little Logan was discharged from the hospital and is home. You can read more about their journey HERE.
When I found out that my friend and his wife called Logan their Little Iron Man I just knew I wanted to make him a super hero quilt.
I used Marvel Avengers fabrics from Camelot Cottons, and various other basics in the same color family as the main fabrics. The solid yellow is a shot cotton and it is so soft!
I used Steam a Seam light to adhere it to the backing, and I also hand stitched the edges down just to make sure that it doesn't come off.
Camelot Cottons. My one worry was that the fabric was going to bleed since there is so much red, but to my surprise it didn't! I used 4 color catchers when I washed the quilt, and they all came out mostly white. Normally when I use color catchers with red fabric, they come out mostly pink to red.
