So I was a bit excited at being 1/8 of the way to getting my son’s LEGO Star Wars quilt done. I’ve added a couple more blocks and now I’m a LOT excited to be 1/4 of the way to being done!
New paper pieced LEGO Star Wars friends…
and the ultimate “baddie”, Darth Vader:
These guys still need embroidery to get them closer to being finished, but I”m keeping the paper on the backs of all the blocks til I’m ready to sew them together. It’s going to be a nightmare removing all that paper. Good thing I love my kid. Like lots.
Especially after he told he doesn’t want Vader on his quilt as he is “too bad guy”. Sorry kid. This too me hours to piece. He’s making the cut. I’ll just put him down the bottom somewhere and surround him by good guys to keep him in line.
Here’s what one quarter of a LEGO Star Wars quilt looks like. It’s starting to come along! I’m hanging out for my fabric order to arrive soon so I can start on the “people” characters. No suitable flesh tones in my stash until then.
Keen to make your own LEGO Star Wars quilt? Check in on my Craftsy shop. I’ve been adding the patterns as they get tested. So far, Princess Leia has been the most popular in downloads!
I thought I was finished designing LEGO Star Wars characters. Til I realised I’m missing Padme. I thought she was a minor character, but since being sucked into playing LEGO Clone Wars III, I’m realising she’s a bit more important than I thought. Well for my kids’ preferred version of Star Wars anyways. He’s less interested in the old-school guys, and more into the Clone Wars guys. Seeing as it’s a quilt for him… guess I’ll be drawing a Padme character soon. Seriously. That kid of mine. He’s lucky I love him so much.
