A while ago (about a year ago, actually) i finally finished a quilt I had been working on for many months. My daughter's boyfriend loves star wars. I came across a great website by Andy Rash, who is an amazing illustrator, and he had pixellated the characters from star wars - http://andyrash.blogspot.com.au/2010/09/1200-star-wars.html.
so i decided this would be a fun quilt. Whew! I chose 10 characters and made up the blocks. On and between the blocks I embroidered various quotes from the movies. I don't have many good photos, but here are the ones I have:


top row:


middle row:


bottom row:


detail of Obiwan:



You can't really see in these pics, but I embroidered these quotes:
at the top of the quilt, in big lettering: A LONG TIME AGO IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY

Next to Chewy: hrraghrrahgh
coming out of Han's mouth: laugh it up, fuzzball!
Also, at the bottom of Han's block: I know
top of leia's block: I love you
bottom of Leia's block: why you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerfherder!
Luke: Never! I'll never turn to the dark side!
Darth: I find your lack of faith...disturbing
R2D2: these are not the droids you're looking for
C3PO: how rude
Obi Wan: use the force, Geoff
Yoda: Do or do not. There is no try.
I realise I don't even have any pics of it after it was quilted and bound.

I don't have many pics, and now my daughter has split up with her boyfriend, so I guess I won't get anymore Sad
anyway it was fun to make and I know how much he loved it. No regrets. Smiley Hope you like it!

thanks, MareMare. a lot of people use Andy Rash 'iotacons' for cross stitch, but I haven't seen any other quilts based on his designs.
cheers, Aileen
