The cake that became a quilt

Once upon a time… I happened upon THIS fantabulous cake. 
And: Instead of cake, my brain said quilt.  A rag quilt.  For Nolan’s birthday.
(He loves Spiderman)
(And Batman)
(And approximately 17,642 other super heroes whose names I never manage to keep straight)

So I copied redesigned the Spiderman cake into a rag quilt appliqué.

And surrounded him with red and blue rag quilt squares.

I’m not going to give you a full tutorial, cuz there are lots of really good ones already out there in blog land. 
Like HERE.  Or HERE
I do love some really fluffy seam allowances.  So to that end, I cut my squares much bigger than most tutorials - 9.5”, with a 1.5” seam allowance when sewing them together. 
The center square is 16” x  21.5” before sewing.
Couldn’t forget a new Spidey pillowcase made from THIS tutorial on Made  :)

How fun. I bet your son is loves his new quilt and pillowcase - I know my boys would.

Also wishing that my brain turned cakes into quilts. Not only would I probably loose some weight, but there'd be a lot more sewing going on here:)
