    This is my first full sized quilt. I used the Quilt-as-you-go method that I found on this board http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-36303-1.htm. The storm troopers are iron-on and the Lego logo, bricks, and faces are appliqué. I had a great time designing and making this. I have to admit though....after all the time it took to make it, I got pretty sick of it in the end. Does this happen to you? My 9 year old son is thrilled to bits with it and that made it all worth while.

    I'm glad a sneaked a peek while at work - if my boys saw this it would be on my to do list!

    Adorable.

    And yes, I do get sick of some projects near the end; some I'm sad to see finish. I think that these two reasons account for many UFOs and WIPs. Have to admit I force myself to finish what I start before I start something new. Hope to continue with this approach because UFOs and WIP stress me out!

    That's a really cool quilt!!! I bet he does love it! You did an awesome job with your design, colors, etc. Yes, I've found that towards the end of making a quilt...I'm pretty tired of it. But when it's done it feels so good! I think then I'll stop awhile and take a break...like maybe it's time to clean my neglected house. Well, that lasts for about 2 seconds...and I'm off to my next project! lol!

    I love your quilt! My grandsons would be thrilled with it and I so love that pattern you used! I am thinking how you could just put different designs in the center and still use those bright colors in the attic window block! Quite nice, indeed.

    I really like it! It's nice and bright. :) I've felt that way about some projects, but it goes away quickly!

    This may be a stupid question...but is it ok to use a logo on a quilt ? Is it some kind of copyright law or something. I ask because I've wanted to make one for the Bejing Olympics but was hesitate because I wanted to use the "rings" logo on it. Not trying to start anything cause I love your quilt, wonderful work, more just curious.

    I believe, but could be wrong....
    that it is OK to use a Logo for something that you do not intend to make any sort of profit from. But now you have me thinking more about it as well....

    I love the bright colors on the quilt and I think I will not share that image with my nephews....

    I was not worried about the copyright law because I did not make this to sell or show. I won't be making any money off of this so if Lego wants 100% of the profits they can have it. I sure hope I don't get a Lego lawyer at my door....although my son would be THRILLED to have someone representing Lego in our house. Thanks for all the nice comments.
