52 Quilts: Number 8 – Star Wars the Force Awakens

Quilt 8 52

(This is part 2 of 2 posts about the quilts I made for my sons.)

In my previous post, I showed off my son’s all-blue triangle quilt. Now here is my other son’s Star Wars quilt. I ordered a Fat Quarter bundle of Star Wars Force Awakens fabric way back at the end of the summer, without knowing much at all about the movie, but assuming he would love it. (He does. We took the kids twice in the theater in the first two weeks.) I got the bundle from Massdrop,(affiliate link) which is a newish social-driven shopping site. They have quilting supplies as well as some other things now. and the offerings vary daily. The more people buy in, the cheaper the price. Win-win.

I used the Hopscotch Pattern from Olive Tree, which I have made a few times before and found it works great with Fat Quarters. It’s sort of a disappearing 4-patch, which showcases larger prints.

Like the other print, I sent this to Missouri Star Quilt Co for their quilting service. I decided on their service because they offered this pattern. It has TIE fighters and X-Wings in the swirls, which is perfect for this quilt.

The back is Millennium Falcon print and a little topping of Force Awakens text fabric. I love the Millennium Falcon, so this backing fabric was an easy choice for me.

I don’t know about you, but I think he likes it.

When he was making his bed recently, he commented, “Geez this quilt is heavy, you must have put a LOT of LOVE into it!”
