Robot Patchwork Blankie

My traditional guild will host our bi-annual show in June. We're super excited about a new venue this year. It's getting more and more difficult to find suitable venues for large quilt shows that are (a) affordable, (b) available on weekends, and (c) have decent lighting!  This year we'll be at the Capilano University Sportsplex and it's going to be spectacular.

With that in mind, I've started turning my thoughts to putting my stash to good use. I coordinate the member's Boutique where we sell our handmade goods to show visitors, thereby earning ourselves and our guild some cash (the guild takes a small percentage).  While searching for something entirely unrelated in my drawers/bins/shelves/bags recently, I discovered a long-forgotten stack of 6" squares left over from pillows I made for my nephews a couple of years ago.


Presto: one little boy stroller blankie or playmat for the boutique! Pieced, simply quilted and bound in an afternoon-evening.

Backed with some Lizzy House Castle Peeps!
