Woohoo! Lots of you have downloaded The Droid Is Not For Sale, and I have enjoyed seeing your quilts come together on Instagram!
I see a lot of people making just the BB-8 from the pattern – yes, I know… despite it being about Rey, the droid is just so dang cute! So last weekend, during my guild’s monthly sew day, I decided to do the same as a gift for someone. I scaled it up x2 to get a lap quilt:
I kept track of my calculations, and put them in a pattern supplement for you. You’ll still need the original pattern for the construction steps, and I’ve given you only the fabric requirements for the BB-8 block, not the rest of the quilt – I’ll leave that sizing up to you! (I used about an additional 2 yards of background to build mine out to about 45”x 59”)
I also added some snowballed detail to the smaller black dot on the dome – it was too tiny to snowball easily at the original scale (and I’m all about it being easy to make!)
Download the supplement here.
My quilt top is with Nancy Stovall at JustQuiltingPDX – can’t wait to see what magic she makes on it!
BTW – Did you join my mailing list yet? Do it here. I’m dreaming up groovy exclusive stuff for you!
