Quilt With Us

Well, I'm not so sure about this one!  It is the latest Star Wars fabric, fresh from the latest movie which is not even in theaters yet, and DS will be thrilled to get it for his birthday.  What you see below is just the top.  I'm putting a red plaid flannel (remember his arctic world is white, gray and black at this time of the year) on the back, and the binding is black.  I think the whole thing looks a little chaotic, but the printed Star Wars fabric is a little chaotic.   I call the quilt "Tie Fighter Scramble."

I think it's wonderful! So will your DS.

It's a great quilt.  When i first saw the photo, I immediately thought of the Star Wars X-wings, so you've nailed it!  Your DS will be thrilled.

There's nothing chaoctic about this quilt, because of the way the design fits together. The red border sets if off and pops out the other red in the design. Love it and I'm positive your son will love it, too. You did a terrific job!!!!

I love it.  So would my son Corey.  He has been a Star Wars fan for many years.

Chaotic? Not at all. It's gorgeous!

Um... I can't claim that I designed the quilt (except for adding the border); it was designed by Jean Nolte for Fons & Porter, who called it "Star Wars X-Wing Fighter."  Roxann, DS, and other die-hard Star Wars fans would recognize that the bow-tie shapes do not represent Republic X-Wings but rather the Tie Fighters of the Empire.  (So who's the Star Wars nerd now?)   I stumbled across the fabric last week in one of my favorite quilt shops.  The owner was opening the shipping packages right then and I couldn't resist.  I just made it a little larger and added a flannel backing.  Do you see how many seams had to be matched here, never mind keeping the trooper helmets upright?  Gah!!

Love the border, been thinking about doing more quilts this way. Some fabric does have to grow on us, especially if it not our favorite, but someone else. I know he will love it.

Do you realize how many people would love to get this??? I agree with a perfect block choice. It'll keep them warm while they watch the old star wars movies! Great job MOM!!!

You are ahead of the game, Carol Ann!  A quilt prior to the movie release.  Great block choice. it doesn't look too chaotic to me.  There is good definition between the busy fabrics and the more tonal background fabrics.  I agree that he'll love it!

Way to go!  You need to step back from it for a day or two, and hopefully when you look at it again with fresh eyes, you will realize how awesome this quilt really is.  DS is going to love this.
