Robot Quilt

I made this pieced 60”x70” quilt, Inspired by John W. Golden, for my son’s 4th birthday. He had a whole robot themed party. The fabric is from the collection Robots by David Walker.


After using Photoshop to figure out how I wanted to piece the quilt, I broke it into sections to print. I printed the sections and taped them together. The life-size taped paper pattern went up onto a large wall which I then covered with freezer paper. Because freezer paper is somewhat see-through I was able to then transfer the design from the printed paper onto the freezer paper using a Sharpie and ruler. I numbered and cut apart the freezer paper pieces and divided them into piles based upon the fabric I would use. When I cut out the fabric I simply ironed on the freezer paper pattern pieces and added ¼” seam which was easy to do with an acrylic ruler and rotary cutter. At this point to construct the quilt, I used the numbers I assigned the pattern pieces to know how to put everything together.
