This will be the third quilt I have made with Robot Factory (which is now out of print and practically impossible to find). The first quilt I made was for my nephew from the pattern Pow Wow by Cluck Cluck Sew and then I made a simple square patchwork quilt for the son of one of my girlfriends.
I had several half square triangles left over from piecing the Pow Wow quilt and I saved these pieces knowing that someday I would put them to good use.
I sewed these half square triangles together to make “flying geese” and then randomly pieced the squares together. I’m very happy with how it turned out. In retrospect, I am a little nervous about the quantity of white in this quilt since it is going to a little boy (and I am now realizing how messy toddlers can be!).
I decided to quilt parallel lines between the pieced blocks. I’m really happy with how it turned out.
The back is pieced with every last bit of robot fabric I had left. I guess I’m going to have to find a new fabric for boy quilts!
Now I just need to package it up and mail it off to this sweet little boy…
