What does a SUPERHERO look like?

Our perception of a what a Superhero is and looks like has taken on a whole NEW meaning this year, hasn't it? It has been such a source of beauty and inspiration to see ordinary people, our friends, neighbours and families, transform and rise up to help each other out!!!

The meaning behind the "Be A Superhero" quilt pattern series is just that... to visually transform the recipient into a Superhero! When someone stands behind, or lays underneath the Be A Superhero quilt... THEY become the Superhero! A true empowerment quilt!

I wanted to support and share this process together with you, so I decided to offer a FREE, weekly video tutorial full of tricks and tips to make any of the Be A Superhero patterns through a QAL (quilt-along) for the quilt and SAL (sew-along) for the doll patterns. The weekly videos were recorded LIVE and are now uploaded into their respective Facebook groups. You can watch all the videos for FREE! Just look under the UNITS tab for "Be A Superhero!"

For the QAL and SAL I was so excited to get the chance to sew with Amber Kemp-Gerstel of Damask Love's GRL PWR collection for Riley Blake Designs! There are so many amazing prints in this collection and the colors are so fun and happy!!!

The lightning bolt print has a wonderful face border on each side of the selvage! What a great bonus on the print! I decided to fussy cut the border to use in the center of my Be A Superhero quilt center crest! I also fussy cut the trim on the back of the doll's cape!!!

To keep your pieces organized, I designed some FREE downloadable PDF printables for your Be A Superhero quilts. You can go download yours HERE.
