Storm Trooper Quilt Pattern
I got the idea for this quilt from Kim over here.
Quilt measures roughly 90 x 90
Black: 3 yards
White: 2 yards
Gray: 1/2 yard
Binding: 3/4 yard
Backing: 5 yards
Gray: Cut fabric into 3 - 5" strips. From those 3 strips cut them into 24 - 5" squares.
White: Cut fabric into 14 - 5" strips. Sub cut into 106 - 5" squares.
Black: Cut 10 - 5" strips. Take those strips and sew groups of two together into 5 - 5" strips.
Cut 10 more 5" strips and sub cut into 78 - 5" squares.
Now you should have three stacks of 5" squares and one stack of 5" strips.
Starting at the bottom I took two of the black strips and sewed them together. This forms your bottom two rows.
Then I took and sewed black, black, black, white, gray, white, black, black, black, black, white, gray, white, black, black, and black. This will form your third row.
Continue like this until you get all of your rows together, following the picture for your guideline.
You can sew your rows together however you like - after you finish one or at the end of sewing them all together, you pick whatever works for you.
Oh and be sure to iron!
Then quilt how desired and cut your binding into 9 - 2" strips and finish your quilt off!! (I am going with gray for my binding, and my boy wants black minky for the back!)
If you make one of these I would LOVE to see it!!
Good Luck and Enjoy!!
