Two Machine Quilting Projects

I have two Machine Quilting Projects in various stages of completion.

AERIAL QUILT:

I previously posted about my first attempt at low-fat quilting, and I’m about one-third of the way completed on the Aerial quilt:

A ROBOT FOR HOPE:

In the middle of working on the Aerial quilt, I agreed to make a “boy” quilt for the charity, Margaret’s Hope Chest, a quilt-a-long hosted by Crazy Mom Quilts. The pattern was a rail fence:

I used all scraps. Each strip is 2.5" by 6.5".

I had some “robot” pieces left over from another “boy” quilt I made.

I was inspired to create a “robot” for the back and to use a “circuit board” for the quilting:

I’m about one-quarter through the quilt with the “circuit boards.” It needs to be completed and delivered by August 1. Calling technical support?

 

UPDATE:

It’s a wrap. I finished the quilt and shipped it. The final product was one of my favorites:
