This time a commission one for Oliver born on 12th September.
My friend wanted the baby's name on the front and as it was a last minute request I made a fairly simple design using some already-made crumb blocks alternately arranged with 4" squares of various coordinating fabrics.
A few weeks ago one of the Quilt shops which emails me had a sale of some children-type fabrics and I bought 3 metres of several of them to use mostly as backing fabrics. One was a lovely robot fabric, depicting some great funky robots with amusing expressions.
Here's the finished quilt:
The quilt measures 32" x 38".
The title "Groovy Movers" was an idea suggested by my Patchwork Group. One of member's son's removal business is called "Groovy Movers' and the dancing robots reminded them of this name.
A close up of some of the blocks:
I mostly machine quilted this quilt, hand blanket stitched the appliqued letters and stars and hand quilted around them.
This quilt was really fun to make, quick to put together and I am pleased with the result. The robots really make me want to smile.
