Welcome to the Rey & BB-8 QAL!
If this quilt has been on your list of things to get to, now is a great time to hop on the QAL train and get it done! The Star Wars fans in your family will thank you!
I’ll be posting the steps weekly on Wednesdays, kicking it off on May 4th (May the Fourth be with you!) with fabric selections. If you’d like to buy a kit, please jump on that NOW and order your kit from Fabric Depot (call the Special Orders desk directly… they have about 8 kits left) so they can get it to you for the first piecing post on May 11th.
Each week will have a photo tutorial for the construction of the featured section, along with hints and tips for your best success. Most of the sections will take between 1 and 2 hours to make, so hopefully it’s an easy fit into your sewing schedule, and if not, you can come back to the posts whenever you like. If you’re interested only in BB-8, you can jump in at week 8.
PLEASE share your progress on social media with these hashtags: #reyandbb8QAL, #reyandbb8quilt, #thedroidisnotforsaleQAL, #the droidisnotforsalequilt. We’d all love to see the different ways the quilt can be made.
Here’s the plan:
Here’s the original post about why I designed this pattern (psst… it’s all about Rey!)
If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments so I can answer them publicly.
See you next week!
