Be A Superhero

Be A Superhero is a collaboration between a group of women who have come together to spread hope and create community through an empowerment quilt project inspired by a little superhero named Caleb MacArthur. Caleb's legacy of strength, joy, hope and courage as he battled cancer is of epic proportions.

This quilt was designed to transform the recipient into a SUPERHERO when they lay under it. There are 3 patterns in the Be A Superhero Quilt Pattern series. Courage Quilt. Strength Quilt. Hope Quilt. If you want to make the front and back you can also get the Courage Quilt Bundle or the Strength Quilt Bundle.

Of course, this quilt can be playful too! The Hope Quilt Backing Pattern gives YOUR Superhero a fun cape! The possibilities for this quilt are limitless! You can customize this quilt by appliquing or using machine or hand embroidery in the crest. You can alter the colors to represent your Superhero's powers! So... come and INSPIRE others and be INSPIRED during the LIVE Sew-A-Long hosted on INSPIRED QUILTING Facebook Group throughout the month of November! You can catch the LIVE or you can watch the replays! We want everyone to join in and share their talents and gifts for spreading joy! Even beginner quilters can master this quilt pattern with the step by step guidance from the SALs! Who are the Superheroes in your life? Who are you making this quilt for? Please comment below!

I chose these gorgeous Riley Blake Designs Blossom Basics fabrics for my sample quilts. These fabrics are designed by Christopher - The Tattooed Quilter and I think they give the quilts a subtle, special hint of magic!

EVERY "Be A Superhero" pattern that is sold, I am donating 10% to Caleb's Courage Charity. To learn more or to make a donation please click the link: Caleb's Courage Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation.
