About the robot quilt finish: I finished binding the robot quilt about one second before my husband got home on Valentine's Day. He loved it! This twin sized quilt is the biggest finished quilt I've done so far. I got a little frustrated during quilting, because no matter what I did or what setting I changed it had the "already washed" look. Who has more trouble quilting regular cotton than Minky? That would be me! Anyway, I should have looked at the picture in the book, because it had the exact same effect! I guess it was just a side effect of quilting on the bias. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it is quilted diagonally, in one direction. I read some suggestions of using starch, so I might try if I ever quilt this way again.
Peek-A-Boo Block & the Churn Dash Block from the Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL. I liked the whole star thing going on in the QAL mock-up, so the only thing I did different than the tutorial was flip the flying geese upside down.
My Chevron Heart Block from the Sew Red for Women Blog Hop presented by Leah at Burgundy Buttons. I joined this because A) I love the Burgundy Buttons shop & B) heart disease runs in my family. One thing I struggle with is eating healthy and keeping my cholesterol and triglycerides in check. I look small, but I eat way too much fatty food. I am hoping this quilt will be a good reminder for me about why it is so important to take care of myself!
This block I am considering a work-in-progress! I wound up a full couple of inches too small, so I have already started a new one to see if I can get it closer to the right size. Things usually work out better the second time around!

Without further ado, here are my choices:
Last week, I googled one of the search terms in my stats to see what popped up. Too my surprise, I saw a picture of my layer cake throw that had been slightly edited. I felt one part awesome, but another part weirded out that a picture of my backyard was on another site without my knowledge! So that's why I've gone a little crazy with labeling pictures!
