The pattern looked really overwhelming at first, but once I got all the strip piecing done it went very quickly. It was so gratifying to finally see the robot pop in. I had to work around it at first because medium gray was way too dark for the robot body, so I had to make a last minute order to get a lighter gray.
My plan now is quilt Wednesday/Thursday & bind Friday/Monday and hopefully be done by Valentine's Day! I am hoping this non-Minky quilting experience will be a little easier on me and my temperamental sewing machine

- The difference between Kona Medium Gray & Kona Ash is the difference between killer cylon and a loveable robot.
- Always make that you are no longer on the zig-zag stitch when changing to the 1/4" foot. There goes another needle!
- If you want to spend more time sewing than resewing, make sure you actually thread the bobbin.
- It does not matter how many seam rippers you own, they are never there for you when you need them.
I love WIP Wednesday! Somehow writing things down makes ongoing projects and planned projects (all completely self-imposed!) seem not so overwhelming.
