Been some time since I’ve done a WiP Wednesday. Don’t get me wrong, I have plenty of WiPs, just none that have been active of late. Until now.
The LEGO Star Wars quilt has evolved. Oh yes. It’s true. It involved much unpicking (unpleasant) then took about 2 weeks to decide on what to do next (indecisive) and another week to actually do it (unmotivated). Whew. A saga indeed.
But now… there is a quilt top! It’s also gone from being a 50” x 60” lap quilt, to a 70” x 95” bed quilt! Whew.
It was worth those hours of unpicking. I actually think I heart this quilt more now with the bigger borders. Just for the sake of it, let’s look at a before and after shot.
Oh yeah. I’m totally loving this. Of course, I maintain the right to reverse that statement while I am in the midst of basting and then quilting this monster. But for now, I’m loving it. I’ll bind it in black too which I think will tie it together beautifully. Now… it’s taken this many weeks to get to this stage. Let’s see how many more until it’s finished…
And for the curious, you can read more about the original LEGO Star Wars quilt here, and you can also pop over and find all these LEGO patterns as freebies in my Craftsy shop. Yep. Free. If you do attempt it, of course there’s only one thing I can say: May the Force be with you.
Linking up with WiP Wed at Freshly Pieced!
