Lego man quilt

I put my hand up to make a Lego man quilt.  I have borrowed these men from my boys to model for me!
The truth is they are modern men, but I wanted to make an old fashion Lego man, the type I grew up with.  So a simple happy face was in order. 
 DS1 helped me pick red for his body and blue for pants.  
So I am spending lots of time making flippy corners.  Plus using the trial and error method  - lots of imprecise cutting and plenty of unpicking going on here! 
Slowly my Lego man is growing.
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. Your lego man looks good, can't wait to see the finish, which I am sure won't take you long!

  2. This looks like a fun project! My grandson is a HUGE fan of Legos, but he only likes the army/superhero type guys. I've seen a free paper pieced pattern for a simple traditional guy but I didn't think he'd like that kind. sigh.

  3. My youngest son, who is now an adult, would have loved this. He could entertain himself with Legos for hours on end.
    Very clever creation! : )

  4. Looks awesome. My big boys would probably love a Lego quilt too!

  5. Sounds like a fun project for you both to be involved.
