use the Force, Catwoman




or use some awesome LEGO paper pieced patterns by Kristy of Quiet Play to create really fun cushions.



Of course you could make them into whatever you want! Kristy is working on the most epic Lego Star Wars quilt and the paper pieced patterns are available for free in her Craftsy shop
When she asked for testers I jumped in and snagged these two.

I happen to love Catwoman and I kept the stitching super simple:



I coloured her lips with a Sharpie (I know the new Lego figure has purple lips but in my mind Catwoman screams red) and added a bright border to the cushion:




After really easy and quick paper piecing, Yoda needed a bit more attention:


and some Sci-fi bling:




Thank you Kristy for letting me test these great patterns!

Head over to the shop now to get these and loads more brilliant designs.


Linking up to Plum and June

  4. OOh they look fantastic! I LOVE how you stitched Yoda's face! It looks just perfect. Awesome job!

    With you on the red for Catwoman - seems to suit her much more than the purple.

    Thanks so much for testing for me - the cushions turned out fabulously!
