She called for some pattern testers. I had to laugh when I saw the title "Help Me Obi Wan Kenobi, I have no Face" linked up to her blog. It was from Snips Snippet who was pattern testing Princess Leia.
Well sorry Snips but Obi Wan cannot help as he also has no face either!
Kristy's pattern is actually for the younger Ewan MacGregor version of Obi Wan Kenobi but I am more of a fan of the original Episode IV Obi played by Alec Guiness.
So I had to make a few changes to his beard on the pattern (happily supervised by Kristy).
It was a little tricky to get the numbering correct. Good puzzle for my brain.
I am keen to work out how Lia mananged to use fabric paint to finish her Princess Leia block. Isn't she just fabulous?
Update: Lia emailed me to say she uses potted fabric paint and applies it with the eye or point of a needle!
It will be challange to try that method. I was hoping to use my fabric Sharpies but they don't come in grey. I might wait until I do a few more blocks, invest in some proper paint and try Lia's method.
And how fabulous are these blocks already made by Kristy? Especially the light sabres. I love all of her pattern but I think these are my favourites now. Actually I love all her blog posts - they are usually very witty.
My boys are Star Wars fiends and so I am going to be making them a wall hanging for their room with all of these blocks. I might have to get the Wombat Stew girls to help me out when my turn comes around again.
Finally I can link up with this week's Paper Piecing Party over at Quiet Play. And SUPER TGIFF over at Blossom Heart Quilts again.
