WIP Wednesday #12: Finally a Jedi!

Where does the time go? The world may never know...

Finished! - Sweet Star Wars
Finally. A completed quilt it is! Now I just have to show it off (you don't think I'd miss that step, do you?) and then get up the nerve to entrust the most laborious 80+ hours of my life to the US post office. Which could take a while. As a reminder, here's the front from 2 weeks ago (Click to enlarge):

On the back I added a pocket for hanging the quilt, and a label calling out the new owner. This label is FMQed rather than hand-stitched (and stay tuned for a tutorial in how I did it), but I am pretty happy with the results.

FMQ Planning - Trick or Treat
I am up to ten stencils now, and any second I will get brave enough to actually get to the laying out, tracing, and FMQing. Right now I have 20 spaces that need a feature design, but 12 ideas FOR a feature design, so the question is, double up or come up with 8 more? Doubling up is the less labor-intensive solution, but there are still some designs I think are cute that I want to include.

Binding - Eclectic Garden
Not a lot of progress on this one, but I got it out of the moth balls and started hand-stitching the binding again. I want to get it out of the assembly line before Trick or Treat goes in!

No Progress:

-Christmas Traditions

-Ready, Set, Snow

And, for proper linkage:

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I love the Star Wars quilt. The figures are so cute!

  2. This is so fabulous! I've been following along on your progress on the phenomenal Star Wars quilt and I'm so happy you've finished it. It's really great. Good luck with the mail!

  3. Your Star Wars quilt came out great. I am totally in love with it.

  4. Oh. My. Gosh! Love the Star Wars quilt!

  5. Congratulations!! Great job on the FMQ label, what a good idea! I recommend priority mail or UPS depending on the receiving end. Make sure they have to sign for it so it doesn't just sit on the porch dor someone to steal.
