Supernova Complete!!!

Supernova is ALL done!!!

I am thrilled with the out come! Finished size: 62 x 80!


As I have mentioned, I made this for my hubby, so I made it how I knew he would like it - which meant light quilting. He loves the back to be soft, and prefers minimal quilting for that.


To accomplish as little quilting as possible on the back, I quilted the top in straight lines just onto the batting. Then, I basted that to the back and quilted just the outlines of the big blocks. It turned out great.

And I was so excited, that I gave it to him yesterday! Two weeks early. :) He loves it!!


I am thrilled to have participated in this amazing quilt-a-long, and would like to thank Lee for hosting it, and sharing this truly amazing pattern with us. I will absolutely be making another Supernova in the very near future!!!

Gorgeous! Which lines did you quilt? I'm still thinking about how I want to quilt mine...

Beautiful quilt, Linz! I know your husband loves it! I like the idea of quilting the top to the batting. I'll have to remember that one...

Angie said...

Beautiful! Nice job, Linz.

Oh look how gorgeous!! I love it. Did you have any problems with the dark backing fabric showing through to the front? I've always been scared to have such a contrast (my long-armer has instilled that in me!).

This is so beautiful! I would love to know more details about which lines you quilted too.

Your colors are super especially for a man's quilt. I think it is difficult to find fabric for a man. I love the back of it.

Wow, I think you did a great job! Especially for a "manly" quilt, those can be such a challenge :) I love the way you played with light and dark fabrics on this quilt and the way those color choices really create movement within the quilt. Great job!!

Lee said...

So, so, SO fabulous. : ) Great job! I'm sure your hubby will love it! Glad you enjoyed the quilt-along.
