Jumping on the Band Wagon with Economy Blocks

I've been wanting to make a quilt using my Rebekah Ginda 'Robotic' organic fabrics for some time now.  I wanted to make them into to a quilt for my son, who turned 2 in January.  I had hoped to present it to him for his birthday, but that has been and gone!  Luckily, being only two, he doesn't really understand time scales, and I think he will forgive me ;-)


I had the idea that I wanted to make a medallion quilt.  I love these type of quilts as you can 'go with the flow' and make design decisions as you go along.  Here is my central panel.  Or should I say 'Medallion.'


I also wanted to have a go at the Economy blocks, (catch me, bang on trend!) and showcase some of these adorable robots.  



I'm going to add to this quilt each month, and with any luck it will be finished before he is 3!!  I'm having so much fun with it.  

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Sarah x
