I reworked some of the blocks in the Star Wars baby quilt, and here is the finished top. I inserted strips of orange Fairy Frost into some of the silver blocks, and I think it gives it some pop.
Let me begin by telling you not to make your blocks this way. The best way to do it is to plan ahead and cut your blocks over-sized, then trim them after you’re finished. I didn’t do that. My blocks were already cut 6 1/2″ square, and I had limited fabric to remake them. So I used the ones it had, sewed them carefully, and they worked.
Also press this seam toward the insert. The result should be close enough to your original block size. Or right on, like this one! Just trim the ends of the insert.
I’m going to finish this with some diagonal quilting, then bind it with the orange. The Force Awakens!
