This is the last episode to compliment episodes 1, 2, and 3. Thanks for sticking with me!
At this point, both the Luke and Darth Vader quilt and the Rey and Kylo Ren quilt were ready for my mid-arm quilting machine. On the original one I made, I had quilted a very close pattern because of the different fabrics I’d used. The quilt has a nice “hand” (the weight and how it hangs) and works wonderfully, so I decided to keep a good thing going.
You can see here the details and tight horizontal swirls pattern I used.
On the original quilt, my son chose the backing and picked a blue mottled stars and sky fabric. It looked awesome but was among the more expensive fabrics. For these, I went with a simple black to help tie together the silhouettes themselves to the overall look of the quilt. With so many blue variations, the black was needed. I also liked how you could see the impressions of the characters on the back.
Here are the final results.
I had originally wanted to wait and begin selling these at my next craft show, but I decided to go ahead and place them on Etsy.
So here is the link to the Luke and Darth Vader listing.
Here is the link to the Rey and Kylo Ren listing.

The fangirl post was cute! I’ve liked Star Wars for a while, but Rey has definitely been key to my renewed interest.
