When I found out we were doing a LEGO inspired bedroom for our next makeover for http://www.designing4hope.org, I thought it would be fun to make a LEGO quilt for the room. I did some snooping around on the web and came up with this quilt design. Here is one quilt (LEGO Quilt) that I really liked, but since this was a donation, I knew I had to do this one myself. If you are interested in purchasing one like this, refer to this link... LEGO Quilt
I went to Joann Fabrics and bought Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Light Blue, Red and Orange fabrics. I had a hard time deciding on the backing. I came across this green, furry fabric. When I finished making the quilt, I decided that it was a great choice since it resembled the green boards that you build your LEGOs on and it is the child's favorite color! Yeah, good choice!
After piecing the front together and then attaching the batting and furry fabric backing, I quilted the entire quilt, one circle at a time! This was tricky but I managed...
I am really happy with the end result and can't wait for the "reveal" of the LEGO room for http://www.designing4hope.org
