Robot Road Trip

Robot Road Trip Quilt

I made this quilt top a year ago and with some quick quilting and binding it’s ready for use!  It’s the third or fourth quilt I’ve made with my Road Trip Tutorial

Road Trip Quilt

The robot fabrics are by my friend Ariel.  I love keeping little quilts like this for donating or gifting.

Whales on the back

Whales on the back don’t really go with robots on the front….but no little boy on the planet will care.

I got the urge to make a lonestar quilt after seeing them on instagram.   But after making one block…this might be a mini-quilt instead.  :)

After the kids go to bed I bring Pebbles in to get cool while I sew.  She’s good (quiet) company after a busy, noisy day!

If you haven’t found a RSS Reader yet to replace Google Reader…I signed up for The Old Reader and I love it…the interface is almost exactly like the Google Reader…except I don’t think it’s available for mobile devices yet. I tried them all, and it was my fav…and I read blogs on my computer so it works for me!

And…I’m blogging my first quilt over at AnneMarie’s blog today!

Pin It!

I'm loving The Old Reader too. I use Feedler on my mobile phone as a reader and it's compatible with The Old Reader.

I love the little whales! I think they go perfectly with the robots. Everyone knows robots and whales are friends. :)

I prefer the Old Reader over the other options, but I read blogs on my phone about half the time so I went with Bloglovin instead. I don't love it, but it works.

Cute! I have a quilt top made with this tutorial of yours waiting to be quilted. Maybe I should just finish it up for the next pregnant friend or coworker!

Gorgeous quilt! The robots are too cute.

As is Pebbles!

Cute quilt, I'll have to add it to my "TO Make" pile... I'm using Feedly as my reader, I liked it more than Blog Lovin. The app is also great.

Hi, any idea where I can find that cute whale fabric?

Pebbles is adorable. I took a class with Jan Krenz once and managed most of a Lone Star with her help and book. I did have trouble at the center, and didn't worry about it much since all meting diamonds were the same color.

Old reader is supported by my old iPad/iPhone app feeddlerRSS. It was nice... I am trying out another one and holding that in reserve with old reader.
