Whsshhh… Khhhh…

Okay, that was my lame attempt and translating the sound of Darth Vader breathing to text. Now, I’m not a big Star Wars fan. Or, more correctly, I saw Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi in the movie theater when they first came out. They were wonderful. And then George Lucas started messing with them and I can’t bring myself to watch.

So why the sound effects? My cousin has asked him mom to make him a Darth Vader quilt that he can put on his wall. I’m helping Mickey with it, and have designed this in EQ8.

Darth Vader EQ8 by Sandi Walton at Piecemeal Quilts

Made mostly of squares, rectangles and half square triangles, with a couple of half rectangle triangles and odd shapes thrown in, it should be pretty easy to construct. It’ll be a challenge to keep the pieces straight, but construction isn’t hard.

We’ll see how it goes.



  1. I am hearing The Imperial March (Darth Vader’s song) as I look at your design! Fabulous! How big will it be? Your cousin is going to freak!
