I ordered a Star Wars bundle when it went on sale at Fabricworm last year. It is a lot of very busy fabrics, so I struggled with which pattern to choose. Ultimately I was inspired by a Pinterest quilt I found by Debbie from A Quilter's Table. The solid star amongst the other squares give the eye a place to rest. I thought it would be perfect for this quilt. It is also a very simple pattern which I think often works best for very busy fabric.
I love how it came together. I used Kona Black for the borders and a Star Wars print from Jo Ann's that I picked up last year sometime to bind it. The back is pretty cool because it is a single panel, bordered by black, and I think it makes the quilt reversible. I straight line quilted diagonally through the squares, stopping short of the green and blue star. For that I did a white double straight line outline around the star's points. I love how it turned out.
Here is The Dark Side:
|I did square-in-square FMQ on the borders using black Aurafil, Holy cow this picture shows all the fluff! I need to give this a good roll of the lint remover before I gift it!|
|The panel has this really retro vibe that I love.|
