Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 5 - Blog Tour

Thursday, May 3, 2012
Welcome to the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 5 Blog Tour!


I'm excited to again have a block in this great newsstand special issue. I have all 5 volumes and love seeing the creativity!!

My block was inspired by this stack of fabric. It is Robot Factory by Caleb Gray for Robert Kaufman. I knew I wanted to make something where I could fussy cut the robots.

So I created this block! It's a wonky square in a square, but for those of you who are aren't ready to get wonky... have no fear it is paper pieced!


I had big plans of making a quilt for Elijah from this block, but then Quilt Market prep went into full swing! Luckily I think he'll understand and be able to wait a few weeks!

Block #434 - Robox by Julie Herman, featuring Robot Factory by Caleb Gray






--

Here are some layout ideas.

Alternate the block with a solid one.


Set it on point and add some sashing.

Make one block twice the size.

The options are endless. Especially when you start thinking about how it would look in other fabrics & colors.

You can also rotate the block so that it appears more wonky.

Another option is to play with gradients of fabric. I think that Vanessa's new line featuring ombre would make for amazing blocks.

What cute blocks! I just made a baby quilt with those robots a couple months ago. I love that fabric line.

Beautiful block for a scrapquilt. Would use all my scraps to make this quilt. And it would be so fun to win this magazine :)

Since I'm an I Spy addict, I'd have to say fussy cuts (of anything). I don't need to win, but I like this block, I'm always open to new ideas to 'spy'.

robin said...

It would be cute with Going Coastal. :)

The Gad-A-Bout Gal said...

I would use either the Robot fabric or Doctor Seuss fabric.

Sandra said...

Since you have shown us what Robox would look like using different options and using Robot Factory for Kaufman fabric, this seems like the perfect fabric. It is so neat to see what your options are and what they will look like before you attempt to make them yourself. Thank you for participating and giving us all a chance to win such a sensational magazine.

Congratulations Julie for being chosen again to be included in this next issue! Great block too. I just spotted the new "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" by Dr Seuss Christmas fabrics at Robert Kaufman.http://www.robertkaufman.com/pre-cut/f0570541/
I think with a bit of fussy cutting I think that fabric line would make an adorable holiday quilt for someone.

patricia said...

I use turtles when I can. I can see a seaside theme that's ageless.

Barbara said...

I would use batiks.

The food fabric would be fun to play with. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of the magazine.

I really like this block. It would make a great baby quilt using the owl fabric line......I don't remember who's line it is.

WoolenSails said...

This block would be perfect for the fabric I won. I want to make charity quilts with it, so something quick but fun. I have The down under fabrics and the animal print would look fun in the center piece.

Debbie

Gina said...

I love wonky and can't get things straight anyway, so wonky works well for me! Your block is fantastic and congratulations for being selected by the magazine! I was thinking maybe red, white and blue with a star fussy cut for the center block!

Debbie said...

I have some fabric in my stash that would do this pattern justice.. some florals... fussy cutting my favorite flower .. love this drhodes9@cox.net

Kathryn said...

I'd make something unisex in solids. Then it could go to either a girl or boy at the homeless shelter that I support with quilt gifts. Kathie L in Allentown

lisaschaos said...

I love wonky (my husband swears I made that word up so I really love it when other people use it and prove him wrong, lol)! Wonky squares! I'm so there! I love plaids - pretty much anything plaid and I can see using plaid fabrics then finding a northwoods fabric to fussy cut (love that term!) :) Thanx!

Amanda Echler said...

I have a stack of Alice in Wonderland Fabrics that would work perfect with this wonky setup!

Glenna said...

Jill said...

Perfect for a fussy cut block. Thanks

Alassel said...

I just went through my stash and I think I'd use some of the beautiful purples and blues from Kate Spain's "Good Fortune" line that I have yardage of. This block is so cute in the robots you picked, though! :)

Kay Ahr said...

I have a large stripe with people sitting at computers. I'd make the block large enough so I could fuzzy cut and put the people in the middle section.

Sunnybec said...

I'm in shabby chic mode at the moment so it would have to be something with flowers, anything with flowers! Linda

Debbie said...

Great wonky block, Julie. I would use fabrics from my scraps, sorted by tones.

Becky said...

The Lorax fabric would look cute in your block. Thanks!

Sharon said...

Vintage modern.

I'd be able to fussy cut my collection of Chickens...might be a little crazy, as I probably have a FQ of almost everyone I come across much to my family's schagrin :)
tracydvr at comcast dot net

Andrea said...

I love the robots and that second version of a possible quilt layout is my favorite option. I think I'd like to make a boy version too so maybe some of Parson Gray.

Mary said...

What a cute pattern! The little people in my life are all girls, so I think I would use fabric I found with big cupcakes on it as the center block with coordinating fabrics surrounding. Thanks for sharing the variations.

Jennifer said...

I have some left over flannel from a new granddaughter's quilt and I would fussy cut the monkeys to put in the center to make a car throw. Thanks for the opportunity.

Love to win a copy of the book.

Julie, I'm anxious to have Volume 5 in my collection too. I have the first four and look to them for inspiration all the time. I've been eyeing this cute robot line of fabrics and wondered how I might be able to capture them without putting them all on the back! I also might think of that cute owl novelty fabric that's on shelves right now. Don't know the name of the line. Thanks, Sandi

supersara20 said...

thegoose said...

I would use some cute bots from Rashida Coleman Hale. :)

4dreamsr said...

I think I'd do a scrappy around a print middle like you did. I've got some small print blocks that need a border around them & this would be perfect.

Peg said...

I have some great beer mug fabrics that would look fun fussy cut into these blocks for my hubby and my nephew, both backyard brewers.

What a cute block! I would fussy cut using the Sandy Gervais collection - Objects of Desire. Oh My, I can see it now. What fun!

I would use hot pink and lime green with some white to make a quilt for my granddaughter. I love Northcott fabric so would look at it. My LQS will love seeing me come in and start picking fabric.

Helloooo!
I would love to use a new fabric from Northcott
called Forest Friends to make a kids quilt with your block :D
Thank you.

I liked the fabric you used. I would have to try to find it so my grandson could have robot blocks.

I'd use "Fiesta," by jennifer Sampou. It has a range of colors & patterns that would look good "wonked."
