I decided my lego room needed a new handmade quilt. I used this tutorial to make all 448 blocks and then hand sewed them all together using some extra black yarn I had. It is ended up being 63"x80", just enough to fit and cover up the bed frame.

This is SO clever!! I knew from the thumbnail that they were supposed to be lego blocks. Every lego room should have one of these Smiley.

I knew from the subject line that this would be good.  It's amazing!!  I can't imagine the patience it took to sew them all together.

Thank you everyone!

To answer your question Trekky, I've been working on and off it since September... but I didn't get to work on it a lot over Nov-Dec time. I'm just glad I finally got it done!
