I have always loved Star Wars. I can not wait for the new movie to come out this week – I’ve had tickets since the day they went on sale. As such, this seemed like a great week to finish these little blocks.
I found the patterns for free on Craftsy back before they changed to Blueprint. They are from Kristy at Quiet Play Designs. I thought you could still get them from her, but I just looked at her website and didn’t see them there. Maybe she’ll get them added back some time soon.
Rather than make them in to a larger quilt, I decided to just quilt them up to make mini quilts to hang in my office.
Here they are – I think they came out really well!
I used a double batting of Warm and Natural Cotton with a piece of wool on the top. I matched the thread to the fabrics in each section. The hair was fun to do, and I enjoyed the background swirls. I didn’t know what to do with the faces, so I just did some pebbles. I didn’t draw eyes and mouths on the faces because I thought I’d probably ruin them 🙂 .
Here is Leia, front and back:
and Han, front and back:
(he looks a bit wonky…I guess Han is also a bit wonky, so I’m ok with that)
I tried a new technique for making labels on these little quilts. They came out really well – I’ll write about that soon.
Both little quilts finished up 9″ square. As I said, I will hang them up in my office at work with my Death Star. You can see the post about this mini quilt here.
This was a finish on my Q4’19 FAL list so I will be posting it on the FAL linky at the end of the quarter.
These are wonderful! I’ve made a Death Star – I added it to my This Droid is Not For Sale Quilt.
Thanks! I enjoyed making them. I hung them in my office today and they look great – they make me happy.
I went to your blog and checked out your ‘This Droid’ quilt. I love it! The Death Star you added is a great addition.
Thanks also for your second comment about the fabrics in the Death Star. I spent a bunch of time trying to make sure I got the coloring and shading right. It was a fun quilt to do.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy holidays!
Forgot to say, I love the fabrics you used for the Death Star.
These are so fun! The hair is my favorite part–your quilting to make it look like hair is amazing! I hope you are having a lovely holiday!
