Star Wars Scrap Quilt

3 Comments

IMG_2485I haven’t yet made any blocks for the Droid Quilt Along at The Stitch TV Show, but I got all excited before the directions came out and made the back for it.  That left me with just a few scraps that I had to make into another baby quilt, just because.

IMG_2489This was my first time making the wonky stars.  They are easy enough, but not as quick as I thought.  I like them, though.  They are made entirely from pieces from my 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ bins.  The different grays give some dimension.

IMG_2486I quilted all the plain blocks with wonky stars.  I was set to use decorative thread, but then decided that I wanted the shadows to do all the work, so the whole thing is quilted, top and bottom, with Superior’s Bottom Line in white.

IMG_2488The back is made from some multi-tone chevron fabric that wasn’t wide enough.  I made the zig zag insert using blocks I had miss-cut on those other elephant/SW quilts.

IMG_2496This is headed to my Etsy shop.  If you haven’t seen all the Star Wars baby stuff on Etsy, go look.
