Panda's Lego quilt is finished, and he is a very happy boy.
Of course it is backed in minky. He has informed me that red is his new favorite color. Blue used to be his favorite color and that is why the binding and extra stripe are blue.
I went into more detail about the piecing and quilting in my previous post. The HQ 2" and 4" Clamshell Template worked very well, but the sad thing is that Handi Quilter has discontinued this type of ruler. They now have a Multi Clamshell Ruler which has four different sizes but not as many repeats.
I quilted it in a shiny gray thread and I love how it creates a shadow effect. Even though the circles on real Legos are spread out, it still feels like Legos.
We named this quilt "Lego Rainbow" because of all the colors and their arrangement.
It is very appropriate for my Panda because he organizes his Legos in separate color bins.
Usually this quilt is in his bedroom, minky side up, ready for his Legos.
I love that the minky backing looks like a giant Lego base plate.
All of the fabrics used are Kona solids. The colors I used are: Cardinal, Watermelon, Carrot, Goldfish, Citrus, Buttercup, Grasshopper, Cabbage, Ocean, Alegria, Heliotrope, and Pansy.
