Robot pillows

I'm sure I promised myself that I wouldn't buy any more robot fabric...but then I saw these really cute screenprinted panels and this picture of one used in a pillow. I thought that would be perfect with Luke's quilt. So I ordered some, and paired them with some scraps I had leftover to make these pillows.

I snuck in a little bit of my Robot Red Rover too.

Luke really likes them. Maybe I'll make one more? We'll see.

Thanks for all of the helpful comments on my scruffily quilt! I picked out a yellow (Kona Sunflower) and a brown (Kona Sable) for the back, using my handy Kona Color Card. I'm going to pair them with some of my leftover scraps for the backing. I'll let you know how it turns out! (If you're looking for a Kona Color Card, check out North Country Quilts on Etsy. She seems to get them pretty regularly and will set up a custom listing when they're available. Plus, they're less expensive than I've seen them elsewhere. She's having a great sale on her Kona solids too, so check that out if you need to stock up.)

Katie, You amaze me. Your work is beautiful. If you ever quit work, you could go into your own business designing and makeing beautiful quilts, pillows, stuffed animals and who knows what else.
