Robot Quilt

Our good friends just welcomed their new baby; this was my baby shower gift:

To make this quilt, I first did some doodles:

Then I tightened up my favorite design (and did some maths!):

And then I cut out about 204 squares and sewed them all together. With my sewing machine! I'm not sure if I'll ever get past plain old square quilts (I'm very intimidated by anything other than squares), but I figure that'll pave the way for Tetris and Legend of Zelda quilts. Maybe someday I'll seek counsel from the amazing quilter-seamstress-toymaker-designer Claire Sanders, but until then...Yay 8-Bits!
