Panda has been asking for a Lego quilt for a long time. I finally got around to making him one. I cut all of the bricks out at 4.5 by 8.5 inches so we could play with them on my design wall. I decided that I could cut some of them down to 4.5 by 4.5 inches after we decided on a layout.
Both Panda and Monkey had fun putting them up on my design wall. Here are some of the layouts we tried.
|Horizontal rows with extra purple.|
|Horizontal rows with extra blue.|
To make it look more like Legos, I quilted it with a two inch clam shell ruler. I used a Hera Marker every inch to make it easier to match the clam shells into circles.
I rotated the quilt after each row of clam shells so that I was always quilting from left to right.
I think Panda is going to like it.
