I finally have a finish to share here, and this quilt has been done for several months, just took a while to get pictures. It's a HUGE quilt and big quilts are hard to take pictures of...so I put it off. I also realized as I'm writing this, that this is only my second finish of the year. I don't know what's happened, usually I've done more. I guess I need to start finishing quilts, instead of starting new ones.
My son is a huge fan of Star Wars, has been for years, and I figure he probably will be for many more to come (especially with the new movies coming out). So this was really fun to make and exciting for him--kinda. (Let's face it, quilts aren't as exciting to my kids as they are to me...).
The pattern is actually a cross stitch pattern by wee little stitches. Each stitch is a 1 inch square. I started out doing a 2 inch square, but it was just getting too big, so I shrunk it down to one inch, and honestly it could probably be even smaller, but I don't love working with smaller...
A blurry picture on my sons bed...he even accessorized it with a vader mask and cross bow for chewie.
I used black and white stripe on the binding.
And I didn't quilt it myself...I tried, but after attempting 2 times, unsuccessfully, to baste it, I decided to send it out. I used Emily Session @ Emerson Quilting. She did such a great job. She quilted in concentric squares and I think it works perfect for this pattern. I love it!
