An Epic Love Story

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.... I married my childhood sweetheart.  I wanted to give him something special for Valentine's Day and I joined our geeky passions (Star Wars + Quilting) yet again for the gift.

Since we spent Valentine's Day together on an airplane:

and since I didn't start sewing until we got home from our trip, his gift was a bit late.

I hit my favorite design source, Google Images, and printed out an alphabet:

Then I traced the letters on Heat 'n Bond and appliqued them to fabric:

I only had one pillow form, so these were two sides of the same pillow:

This pillow goes well with his Christmas gift:

If you are not a Star Wars fan and are totally confused, watch this:

and then watch every Star Wars movie.  And pretend that Jar Jar never happened.  We do.

Oh how sweet. I am sure my son could relate to that. He has the whole movie memorized! LOL What a beautiful memory!

My husband and I are big Princess Bride fans. Our line is "as you wish" done in embroidery and hanging above our bed. Sweet romance!

So romantic! We don't really have anything like that - not even a song! *sighs*

LOve it :0) How did you make that Darth pillow? I love to make one for Aaron.
Happy Sewing
