At long last, the final Star Wars quilt is DONE! I finished it during the Black Friday Sew In yesterday (thanks for entering the giveaway - the winner has been notified by email!).
The layout is the same as the previous quilts - applique center panel with a logo border and surrounding “pictures”.
Perhaps you’ve heard that the Millennium Falcon is my favorite ship ever, so of course that’s what I put in the center of my own Star Wars quilt.
You can see a bit of the lime green thread I used to mimic the hyperdrive jump in the starfield. I have a thicker thread I would have loved to use, but my machine gets cranky about it so I had to stick with the Aurifil, which quilts like a hot knife through butter.
Of course the only way to improve Han Solo is to surround him by cats.
I still love C3P0 being crushed by the tires in the trash compactor on the prison level.
Bonus shot- I had some leftover ships I had prepped to use on a previous Star Wars quilt, but they weren’t working out the way I wanted. I used them instead to make a subtle new nametag for my guild.
I think Morelli has as big a crush on Han Solo as me.

Ok, Miss Head Rhombus, fantastic finish! I love your MillenniumFalcon 🙂 Now after the explanation on one your podcasts I can even recognize it in your header. Impressed? 🙂 You did a great job and did finish it fast I should say!
Somehow I knew Hans was a cat lover. Well done!
The Force is strong in this one. Very, very geeky/awesome.
Torie’s DD here - the fact that someone even made Star Wars blocks for sale in the first place tickles me pink, and seeing this come together warms my geekette heart.
This is really fantastic! I am impressed with your productive weekend. My boys are going to love seeing this.
I think that last shot of Morelli is him getting his Zoom and Zapper on. Did one of them sit in that same position?
I love your Star Wars quilt. My second son has requested a C3PO quilt after his brother got an R2 quilt. We’ll see if that happens.
I am looking for the applique pattern, where did you get it I want to make a wall quilt for my new grandson
is there an applique pattern available?
