Robots + Rockets quilt- finished!

12th May 2010

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 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. It’s constructed with random squares & rectangles, inspired by this pattern (which I do own).

I came across this quilt stitch a while back, & filed it away for future use. 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.

As always, you can click on the thumbnails to see larger photos.
