WIP Wednesday: Robot Patchwork

Robot Patchwork quilt in progress

On Sunday afternoon, I had a cutting extravaganza and cut out fabric for several new quilts. Cutting is one of my favorite parts about quilting and I always enjoy turning a stack of potential fabric into a pieces for a new quilt.

Robot Patchwork quilt in progress

I've got several projects in the queue, but for now I'm focusing my attention on making a patchwork quilt for our guild's charity project this year. My inspiration for this quilt was a fun navy robot fabric that I found in my deep stash. I pulled an assortment of coordinating orange, red, yellow and navy stash fabrics and cut each fat quarter into six 6.5"x6.5" squares. The final quilt will be 9 squares (54") by 13 squares (78") to make a larger quilt for an older boy. I've got a coordinating flannel that I'll be using for the backing and I hope to turn this into a cozy and comforting patchwork quilt. 

 I'm linking up to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday feature with this post.


  1. Great fabrics! I am sure it will be much loved.

  2. That's great that you are making the charity quilt. I don't know what our charity project will be yet coming up with my guild, but it's not been a quilt since I joined.
    It's been pillowcases for foster children, walker bags for the cancer council, and lined bags for the domestic violence center.
