Cut a 12x12" piece of the white fabric
Cut a 12x10" piece of the grey fabric.
Sew fabric together.
Press seam towards the dark side (see what I did there? The "Dark Side"? hahaha!)
Measure up 1.5" on the grey. Find the center. Use this center to mark a curve along the top.
Cut the Hotmelt adhesive. You'll need: 2 - 1"x2" 2 - 3/4"x2" 2 - 1"x1" 1 - 1"x6" 2 - 1"x4.5" 1 - 2"x4" with 1.5" boxes cut out of the middle 1 - 2"x3" 1 - 3"x4" cut into a trapezoid 1 - 2" circle
Place the HotMelt pieces onto the fabric according to the photo. Fuse in place. Allow to cool, then remove the paper backing.
Cut a 2" circle from the black Decofoil and a 1" circle from the red DecoFoil. Place on top of the HotMelt. DO NOT FUSE YET.
Cut a square large enough to cover the 2" circle out of the Pewter, and put in place. Cut the blue DecoFoil to cover all the other pieces.
Fuse the DecoFoil in place according to the instructions on the package.
Allow the adhesive to cool COMPLETELY before peeling off the DecoFoil.
Baste the batting, backing, and top together with the basting spray.
Using the chalk marking pencil, draw the additional side panels, using the placement of the foil pieces as your guides.
With your walking foot, stitch around the additional side panels to define them. Tie off the threads, and bury them.
Trim the curve along the top with scissors.
Bind, using two-colored binding if you prefer. Make sure to use bias-cut binding along the curve.
If you want a Star Wars inspired quilt hanger, paint your words yellow, then fill in the center with black paint. Use string and pins to hang your quilt.
