I’m afraid now that I have embarked on what shall be forever known as the Epic LEGO Star Wars quilt… there’s going to be a lot of pictures and post relating to it. Don’t worry, I’ll try to mix it up for those that aren’t fans. I get it. I used to be a nonfan. Technically I still am. I’m a child of the 80’s who has never seen the original Star Wars. However having a nearly 6 year old son with a special interest in it, I'm a fan by default.
So paper pieced LEGO Star Wars blocks are on the agenda. Here’s what my blocks are looking like now:
3 characters, 3 lightsabers. My block count is now 6/32. Slow but steady wins the race. Or something.
I just finished this LEGO Stormtrooper guy today. I haven’t embroidered the lines on his “mouth” as of yet. I’m keeping the paper on all the blocks until they are ready to be put together. So finishing touches will be added at that point in time.
Re-did LEGO R2D2’s closeup pic as his last one didn’t turn out so well. He’s looking pretty spiffy in his Color Weave fabrics.
And the LEGO lightsaber blocks increased by one. I still need to add in a green lightsaber to keep my children happy colour-wise. These will be border blocks on the quilt. Just going with the four lightsaber colours I think – not sure if there are more. I didn’t even know lightsabers came in colours other than red and blue. J has since educated me. Oh I have added the LEGO lightsaber pattern to my Craftsy shop as a freebie. More patterns will be added as they are ready
So it’s getting there. Just over two months to get 32 paper pieced blocks made, then assembled and into a decent lap quilt. Busy busy.
And as promised, something for the non-fans. Here’s my other WiP.
These are the June blocks for the Care Circle of do.good Stitches. I am loving how this one is coming together. Still a few more blocks to make their way to me before this one goes together however. So I guess that means I have more time to work on the Epic LEGO Star Wars quilt. My son will be pleased. ;)
