  1. My super power right now is to put crying babies to sleep, which with 6 new babies for friends and family this year is coming in very handy….then I can go on to quilt.

  2. My Super Power would be someone to clean up my sewing space after I leave. Right now it’s me and I’m not doing a good job of it yet. Need Help!

  3. My super power would be having the right color of Aurifil to quilt with in my stash. Love Aurifil but only have a very few spools to pick from.

  4. My super power is turning clothing from a lost loved one into quilts for people to love and be comforted by. I put my heart into each one and make sure that each quilt is perfect for each client. My second super power is being super clumsy! I think the first power is much better though, ha ha!

  5. My super power is patience. Very helpful for many frustrating tasks. Thanks for letting us join in on the quilt market fun.

  6. My super power is using starch! Love needle turn applique and starching fabric just makes it so much easier!

  7. My super power is the ability to find things. Maybe it’s a mom thing, but if it’s lost or misplaced, I can usually find it. Wish I could be in Houston.

  8. One of many super powers, being a women, is to get friends hooked on quilting then mentor, encourage, and show them that quilting is more than sewing, it is a gift from the heart!

  9. My super power is my Bernina Machine! It makes a good balanced stitch and I enjoy piecing my blocks on it!

  10. My super power is Caffine! Caffine powered for long days, endless days of quilting! And…no matter how much caffine is in my system…I can still sleep like a baby!

  11. My superpowers are making it work & figuring it out. They’re not bad superpowers to have, as I rarely get stuck for solutions, & I can usually see how patterns (quilting, crochet, & knitting) were done.

  12. My super power is knowing where everything is for everyone else in my house–sometimes even before they ask. The super power can only be used for others though–I regularly misplace things like my scissors.

  13. My super power is being a mom to 4 boys 7 and under. It’s busy and chaotic but I love them. Quilting is my sanity.

  14. My superpower is communicating with my cats. They understand me plus they can also mime and talk to me so that I understand what they want. Right now they want me to make them some small flannel quilts for Christmas. Silly came in the living room dragging his blanket and then draped it over his body. Baby it’s getting cold outside.

  15. My super power is teaching 3 of my sisters to quilt. It is wonderful to have someone closes to me have the same passion.

  16. My super power is quilting, from quilts to mini quilts. Love them all. Even donating time and knowledge at senior center.

  17. My super power is managing and ever growing fabric stash at my church and creating beautiful comfort quilts out of others leftovers.

  18. My superpower is wielding the seam ripper quickly and accurately! (I have LOS of practice!)

  19. My super power is being detail-oriented although it takes me longer to finish sewing and quilting projects so maybe it’s more of a detriment. :-).

  20. I dont know that its a super power as much as its a necessity, but my husband is constantly telling me i have super powers soo. I have RA and Lupus and get infusion treatments and chemo and am actually pretty sick as its attacking my organs, but i take care of my one year old grandbaby everyday and keep her one night a weekend. I make quilts for multiple charities and of course for gifts and family members so I have multiple quilt projects going at all times, and my grandma lives in a house to the right of us so we can care for her as she has early onset alzheimers and my father lives in the house directly next door on the left and has had heart attacks and strokes and i care for him. I was a nurse before my own diseases caused me to have to retire and now i seem to work harder than ever. Lol . I may actually have super powers cone to think of it, as i am still standing, my house is clean, laundry done, husband fed and happy and I and wouldn’t have any of it any other way. Quilting and sewing was what i started doing years ago as a therapy and some escape. It was actually recommended to me by a therapist. I have not stopped since and it saved me. It really did. I find joy and peace in that room.

  21. My super power is helping our guild committee provide over 1200 neonatal quilts for our local children’s hospital each year. I do this by co-heading neonatal committee gather donated fabric, sort it, coordinate fabric with matching patterns, cut it, distribute the kits to guild members, collect completed quilts, and deliver them to the hospital. It’s a great deal of fun!

  22. My Super Power is — being a finisher. Like most quilters I have many started projects. But I’m not happy until they’re finished, so I work hard at finishing.

  23. My superpower is paperpiecing- precise points look good and make me feel good and foundation paper piecing is the secret.

  24. My super power is color. I love putting together color combinations and having that pop of color that just pulls it all together or makes that one statement. I love studying color!

  25. My super power is the ability to procrastinate as long as possible and still get things done. I love Market time. So exciting to see all the new goodies to look forward to.

  26. My super power would be to get all of the projects that I am taking with me on a quilt retreat next week completed.

  27. My super power is geometry–figuring out how to use the fabric most efficiently. The only problem is that I end up with too many scraps to use up.

  28. My super power is slipper making! I’ve been making them for family and friends for almost 20 years! I’ve made all sizes, from newborn to large (or extra, extra large…) men’s slippers. Sometimes I piece the tops, and sometimes I just use a special fabric. Requests start coming in right about this time every year for slippers for Christmas 🎄 😄

  29. My super power is being able to get in the zone and shut the world out so I can quilt!!! It was a necessity while I was raising 7 kiddos, even though it meant staying up all night.

  30. My super power is finding places to buy fabric. I always seem to be somewhere buying it in LQS, online, at quilt shows, FQ’s, remnants, strips. It doesn’t matter the cut or whether I need it. When I am not purchasing it, I am almost certainly thinking about it. I love fabric and I will not lie. 🙂

    Is there a 12 step program somewhere for fabric obsessors? Oops I mean fabric lovers.

    tushay3 (at) yahoo (dot) com

  31. I have the ability to read my kid’s minds when they least expect it! Lol. Little do they know it’s because they are very predictable!

  32. My quilting super power is keeping my 40 yr old sewing machine always running. It serves me very well.

  33. My super power would be the ability to look at all the beautiful quilts on computer and sew at the same time. I must learn self control. I could actually finish so many more quilts if I’d quit looking at the computer for hours and making more projects to add to my to-do list. Oh well, thank goodness one can dream!

  34. My Super Power is holding on to my German Shepherd puppy’s (9 months) leash when he decides to chase something in the woods. Most of the time I stay on my feet 😉

  39. My super power is being a great Nana to all my grandchildren! They light up my world! My daughter told me my super power is always being there when she needs me!

  40. My Super Power would be having the right color of fabric and yardage in my stash for my current project.

  41. My super power is I love to try anything crafty at least once. If I don’t like it, it goes by the by. If I love it, I will continue it as long as I can. That is what happened with quilting. Tried it and loved it. Knitting on the other hand is a different story.

  42. my super power would be always having every thing i need for a new project without going to the store or hunting for hours for something i know i have but can’t find

  45. My super power is finding balance, between being a wife, mom, Oma, quilting time, painting time, and my remedial tutoring, which also takes place in my quilting room. At least my room is very tidy at least once a day!

  49. My super power is new fabric! Nothing gets a project started quicker! Thanks for this chance to win!

  58. My super power is making quilty and machine embroidery gifts for my grandchildren! Two are in college and one is in 6th grade. They bring me joy!

  59. My super power is liking a challenge. Like the reproduction as a lap quilt of a powerpoint graph slide at my daughter’s request. Nothing gets the creative juices flowing like an “out of the box” request.

  60. My super power is the ability to pick out fabrics and threads for a quilt that always work well together.

  61. My superpower is that I can remember every birthday I’m told. Whether I remember to give a gift is a different story.

  62. My super power has nothing to do with quilting or sewing. This year, I’ve lost 50 pounds! So my super power is staying away from sweets and fats and carbs! (but sometimes I cheat, cuz I’m only human)

  63. My super power is to be able to quilt with my three year old daughter and that she thinks it’s a play!

  70. My children and the hundreds of children that came through our door over the last twenty years have said that I have a super power! They don’t know how I can know what they are up to when I am not even in the room! I tell them it’s a Mom super power and even though I wasn’t technically everyone’s Mom I still could do it as long as you had love in your heart. It seemed to work.

  86. My super power is mender of all things. My family thinks I can sew and fix anywhere. I try not to let the down… no matter what the challenge.

  87. My super power is constantly learning new things! Quilting keeps the mind sharp! ~ how to use new tools, new fabrics, and new thread!
