Robbie is Finally a Real Finish

I planned to make this quilt for a hop this spring but ran out of thread for the quilting. I had to wait for the thread to be delivered by mail. It did arrive and I got him done.

I did a variety of quilting from stitch in the ditch, echo quilting, a simple stipple and some ruler work on the border. It was fun to just play.

Pieced and quilted with Aurifil threads, used a Hobbs 80/20 batting. This quilt was pieced from leftovers and scraps so no fabric was purchased for it. Even the backing was a leftover bit! It finishes at 40” x 46” so it’s a nice size for either a crib quilt or a baby throw.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend getting some play time in! Your fabric is calling you! 😁 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

    1. Wendy I’m not usually a real orange fan but since Covid have used it in 3 quilts! Must be the sunny cheery hue that draws us in! It is great to have a finish; Especially one that has been hanging around for too long!


  1. Hi again! I noticed your ruler work in the border first thing – and I suspect it was the pretty orange that drew me in. I think that color was an excellent choice for Robbie – it pulled out that background and made Robbie a true star. Nice job. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Roseanne my rulerwork is still a bit shaky but it’s coming along. I seem to be on an orange kick right now! 3 out of 4 quilts have had Orange it. Funny because it’s not a colour I often use. 😉
