Robotic Triangles, with love.

Robotic Triangles – my latest Cot Quilt Set has been a labour of love !  The colours blend into the robots and the navy striped binding is stunning !

I need to apologise for all the photos – yes I am going to bombard you for two reasons.  Firstly, I love this set and will be sending it off on Monday with mixed emotions and secondly, I am thoroughly enjoying taking loads of pictures with my new camera !!sewnbyleanne_robotictraingles3_patchworkquilt

Robotic Triangles was created around the backing fabric from the Riley Blake Fabric – Fun Robots by Ann Kelle.  I have matched the solid colours on the front to the robots with Robert Kaufman’s Kona cotton solids – Capri, titanium, white, coal, lipstick, ocean and azure !

The navy stripe binding is a Moda basic !

The Cot Quilt is 60×40″  which I find is a great size for not only the cot, but also for a play mat, lap quilt and comforter.  This makes the quilt become more versatile and a longterm investment and treasure <3 .

I have quilted Robotic Triangles with the lovely Aurifil thread 2600 light grey and 2021 white.  I have used a very modern geometric line and LOVE the secondary pattern these lines intersecting together have made.

While I was quilting, I was reminded of one of those party games ” Guess how many triangles are in this picture ???  There would be A LOT in this one !!

This is just one example of what can be created to produce stunning nursery linen that is truly unique, yet modern and stylish !!

Thanks for letting me swoon over this quilt before I send it away to it’s new home.

A Teachers Gift with loads of student love !

This Teachers Gift is full of Student love !!

Their teacher is going on Maternity Leave and the creation of this Quilt started with two dear friends (Melissa and I)  chatting and coming up with this AWESOME Baby Shower Gift from the kids.

Each Student has chosen an 8 inch square colour and letter – and drawn a picture with Fabric textas !!  Aren’t they clever ???

Once each Student had finished their square – then it was my turn to see how they would all come together.  Melissa had tried putting the squares in alphabetical order, but there was a little too much red together – so hence it was decided to be “quirky” and mix the letters up !!  As not all the Squares, were “quilters square ;-)”  I have used the sashing in between to adjust the sizes !!

Melissa also found this gorgeous ABC border print – Alphabet Soup !!  Which has just completed the Quilt top beautifully.  I’m so happy with it – Bright, cheerful and fun – all the characteristics you want in a little one’s play mat !  The children saw their work today in person and are super excited to be giving it to their teacher this week.

The playmat is an awesome size 130x160cm !!

The Back you ask, looks like this……….  The gender of the little one is unknown – so we went Red !! and the strip of Alphabet soup brings a bit of the front to the back !

I have used the delicious Aurifil Dove (front) and white (back) cotton to Quilt.  We decided on Spirals as it softens the squares a little and gives lots of texture to the quilt.

These Close ups give a closer look at the Quilting and the gorgeous pictures that the students have drawn.  Can you imagine being the little one having tummy time ????  They are going to have soooo much fun !!!  And be very stimulated 😉

I can’t wait for the students reactions to their teacher receiving their gift this week !!  Enjoy !!

I so enjoy these Quilts, that are designed as you go, not sure what the final design will be, but this has been such a HAPPY Quilt !! n it makes one smile when you look at it !!

Thank you students for the opportunity to frame your work.
