The robot star quilt and I were having quite a battle when it came to the actual machine quilting. (The next quilt is definitely going to be hand quilted). I finally had to set it aside for a week and forget about it. I was just getting stressed over it and I don’t sew to be stressed out–I sew to rid myself of stress. I have enough stressors in life without my hobby becoming one too. I finally came back to it. I even learned by myself how to do continuous bias binding and once I figured it out, it seemed very easy.
So time for the final reveal of the quilt–I would have liked to do a little more quilting to make it crinkly but it wasn’t to be this time.
And the label –since the green fabric on the front has robots, I put a robot on my t-shirt in the label.

Now I’m off to work on a pincushion for the Modern Quilt Guild’s national pincushion swap,
