Aidan's Star Wars Quilt
I hope you have been watching the progress on Aidan's Star Wars quilt because this one has been a lot of fun. (Yes, I really mean it!) It had its challenges, but it came together well and took less than a month to complete. To give the quilting a little more interest, I decided to use Rainbow Threads in "Zebra" by Superior Threads which alternates black and gray and white thread.
There's a little more white in it than I had hoped, but I like the way it turned out.
I ended up using orange for both the inner border and the binding and then piecing the back to use up all the fabrics.
Here's the back.
I can hardly wait to give it to him. He was SO excited when I told him I was working on a Star Wars Quilt for him.
This is Aidan when he's just being Aidan.....
.....and this is what he looked like the last time I saw him. I think he may have been a Storm Trooper. I know that's a light saber. Just about everything IS!
Hi. I'm Sandy. I grew up in a large family and all my life have wanted to be a mom and a gramma. My mother and my grandparents quilted (yes, even my Grampa!), so I inherited my love of quilting from them. As I raised and educated my children I didn't have a lot of time for anything else, but when they left home I got back into quilting in a big way. I would say I am passionate about it. (Oh, yah, and I am passionate about my husband, too......He told me to say that!)
