Beep Bots!

I love robots. So anytime I see a robot fabric, I get really happy :) I saw these Beep Bot fabrics by Hoffman and I had to make a quilt!

It was all improv... I had no plan. I kept throwing in Kona solids and a navy pindot, and tada.

Some of the robots have this confused look on their faces. I like to imagine that's what I'd look like if I were a robot.

I must say, I quite like the back. I used the fabric from the front in larger chunks to piece a back together. Pretty cute.

I love those multicoloured dots.

And for the binding, a multicoloured stripe from the collection. Stripey binding is always so perfect, no?

It ended up measuring 40" by 54" and is currently in the shop SOLD! :)

I love this quilt! I love the back the most! I love the peiced backs because they make the quilt reversible!

This turned out great! I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't pass up robot fabric. Maybe that's why people keep making it...

Aren't you clever! I love your improv quilting-- I haven't tried it. Actually, I'm kind of afraid. How about you do a blog posting about improv quilting. I need help breaking free from my patterns.

Oh my! I just found you from the SMS giveaway day. I LOVE this quilt. I want to make a robot quilt for my boy and this is great inspiration! You see so much out there for girls, but not as much for boys. This is great :)

I have quite a number of Robot-fabrics. My daughter has a good friend who simply loves Robots. I collect these so that I can make robot stuff for him, each time on his birthday. They are both 10.
