I’ve had lots of questions about my spelling abilities, so I’ll just clarify now that the pronunciation of robot (ROW-but) comes from a local radio DJ where I live. :)
I have multiple personalities when it comes to quilting fabric. I rarely use novelty prints in my quilts. However, I just can’t resist buying some of the cool, modern ones! So I have a good little collection, but I rarely use them for quilts – instead I tend to use them on cute little accessories & such. However, since my boys love robots AND rockets so much, I almost had no choice but to make a quilt with these fabrics. I chose to make it with random squares & rectangles, inspired by this pattern.
I came across this quilt stitch a while back, & filed it away for future use. I thought it would be perfect for this quilt, but I couldn’t get it done without puckers. Rats! So instead I used this “cloudy” design, which I also like a lot. It is bound in solid blue, & is about 60″ x 75″. After steady use for the last few weeks (naps, backyard, the park), it’s softening up nicely.
