Look who's eight
with his much wanted Darth Vader quilt - the middle section is done by printing off a black and white image of Darth, placing it over the black material and just sewing around the lines with white thread - had never done this before and I was thrilled with the results - I spent ages (basically since June) wondering what to do with the Star Wars material as I wanted to do something really fancy but in the end I decided it was far too fussy to cut up and that he would love it regardless of how complicated or simple the pattern was so I just cut it up into 7" strips and put it around the sides. Still took me a week to complete the quilt though!
Here is the back (even simpler!):
where I just used the material as is. It was a good call as he loves it and I am glad he has had it for this birthday when he can appreciate it and not for his eighteenth which is probably when I would have finally settled on a pattern and completed it if I had gone that way!
Here is his card:
again based on the sketch over at Mojo Monday but made too late to enter into their challenge - he claims I paid for it (in other words bought it from a shop) - high praise indeed from an eight year old!
Thanks for looking - Mom to the birthday boy from Solihull
