Welcome to the unveiling of the Star Wars Quilt!
If it looks familiar, you are right, I made the exact same design for my FIL last year.
This quilt is for my son who will be turning 12 in April.
Check out the sa-weet sheet I used for the back!
...from the original Star Wars, circa 1977
As a side note, one of the memories I have as a child was of our brother's bedroom. It must've been sometime in the late 70's or early 80's. Our mom had wallpapered his room in black Star Wars wallpaper. It looked like space, black background with little tiny stars all over it, along with x-wing fighters and such. It was pretty awesome! I'm sure my son would love to have that wallpaper in his room today.
Here is a close up of the quilting.
Along with all the great texture my long arm quilter also added my son's name in the quilting and the phrase "May the force be with you." I think he'll get a kick out of that little touch.
For the binding I chose red.
I think it makes the small bits of red in the quilt really pop.
I'll be showing it off at quilt club next week before wrapping it up for my son's birthday.
I just hope he'll be as excited about it as I am!
Finished quilt measures 60" by 72".
