I seriously don't know wtf is wrong with me. This is for my niece who is due in January. When I started all I knew was that I wanted the Death Star in it. The rest just kinda happened. It's all acrylic painted fabric and I pieced it together and then quilted it. I've added some close ups so you can see what passes for quilting on my sewing machine.













Monster is a nickname my brother started.












I know the images aren't perfect but in painting alien muppets I've discovered it isn't needed to be exact, you just have to capture their 'muppetness'.

C&C are welcome.

That baby is destined to be a geek with a quilt like this (I think that's a good thing BTW).  Great painting!
