Robo baby quilt start

You made it!  Thank you for taking the time to update your subscriptions and follow me over here.

One of my best friends is having a baby boy soon.  She really like robots so I bought this fabric for her quilt.  A hexagon quilt is on my sewing wish list and this fabric seemed perfect for the job.  I made myself a template and began cutting.

I kicked that orange and red stripe out and substituted a yellow polka dot.

I also made myself a design wall for about 17 bucks. It's much better than using the floor. here is as far as I've gotten.

On trips to the park I have been working on these jewel stars. I really enjoy English paper piecing. It's calming, and not as hard as I thought. Nice busy work for the hands.

I've gone from a whipstitch to a ladder stitch.  It looks much cleaner.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.
