Look Who Came to Quilting
Spud 1 got tired of waiting for his quilt. So he dragged the pieces out and helped put the sections together. We had it spread out all over the floor with the completed blocks pretty much suitably arranged. He cut fabric to fill in the holes and I stitched away. Things were going along quite well until some one else showed up in the middle.
Eons ago I saw this tutorial from the blog Tried and True. I pieced it together using one inch squares. The whole thing is pieced including the vast tracts of white space. I have been slowly collecting black, white and red fabrics to make the rest of the quilt... if only I could figure out what the rest of the quilt is supposed to look like. Spud 1 claimed it.
Now the silly thing seems to want to be in the middle of my completely disorderly improvisation quilt. Fortunately (unfortunately!) he is headed back to school so I have time to put it back in the box and think about it more.
What do you think? Does the little robot belong, no need to be, no insist that he be inserted into this quilt?
