Lego Quilt in Progress


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.

Vertical stacks.

Random

Horizontal rows with extra purple.

Horizontal rows with extra blue.
The last one is the one we used.


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.

XX,
Jasmine

  7. That quilting really makes the whole quilt! It was a beautiful, colourful and fun quilt before the quilting, but with the quilting it is obviously a LEGO quilt!
