Robots and Quilts
I got a couple of new quilt templates. The apple core one is fiddly but not difficult. It's easier to sew the curved seams on the machine than I expected.
I don't know what I'll do with the template yet- this is just a sample block from leftover 5" pieces. Evidently, every couple of years, I feel the need to buy precut collections whose colors are very similar...
The half-hex is also fiddly, but it works pretty well (ignore the far right row- it got off somehow). I do like how this goes together though. I'm intrigued. This is a sample block too- both of these will go in a jumble quilt eventually.
This herringbone pattern went together quickly- these are all leftover fabrics. I guess I have a pink and green phase every couple of years too.
And I'm still working on the robot embroidery. It's such fun.
Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!
They're spaced so that the embroidered part can be an 8" block, which I will sash with rainbow colored strips.
