Operation: Resistance Droid

With Christmas less than 6 weeks away, I started piecing my son's gift. I'm making him a twin sized BB-8 quilt to go with his newly decorated Star Wars room. I was really good about cutting out all of my fabric and labeling each cut -- it's something I never do. I had everything organized and I got to sewing.  Here is my progress so far:

As you can see, I have his head done and have begun working on the body. It wasn't until I was editing this photo that I realized that something wasn't right. After another look at the piecing instructions, I realized that I skipped 2 steps so I'll be ripping out some seams and cutting more fabric.  So much for being super organized. On the bright side, I noticed my mistake before the quilt was bound! I'm already thinking about how I want to quilt this. There's going to be a lot of negative space to fill which is exciting and a bit daunting at the same time but it's going to be a fun challenge.


  1. I'm glad you caught the piecing difference early and I hope it's an early fix. I love when photos and blogging help make projects better!

  2. what a blow but at least the mistake was spotted before you got any further, you are going to have one very happy little boy Christmas morning

  3. At least yuh spotted it
    Won't your son be excited about getting this ? It's going to look wonderful

  4. Noticing a mistake before quilting is a win in my book!

  5. Even the best plans are not foolproof. Great to see you caught it early. Nothing is like looking and seeing a mistake at the very end.
