Finish It Up Friday...Star Wars Lego Birthday Gift!

I started this project over a year ago.  A Star Wars Lego quilt for my little brother.  I LOVE IT!!
 I finally finished the quilt top last Friday.  A lot of late nights this week and I finished it just in time for his 12th birthday!
 I bought 3 yds of Star Wars blue print fabric to use for backing and I ended up using it as sashing also.
 All 9 figures are paper pieced by my made up design.
 It made my brain hurt at times.  I finally decided to just do the heads for the final three blocks.
 This is the first one I made, Hans Solo.  I used a Lego man pattern I found online to get started.
 My little sister helped me out with embroidery faces.




 I did simple straight line quilting within each block.  I didn't do anything in the sashing.
 He likes it, although his fake grumpy face says otherwise ;)
Such a fun finish!!
