I’ve had many questions about Mr. Roboto quilt kits so I thought I would just post the information here. These kits are available through the store, American Quilting in Orem, Utah. I’m not carrying them in my etsy shop for a couple of reasons: 1) Conflict of interests. This quilt was designed to for the store where I work and I don’t to be a competitor with my employer. 2)I can’t get the fabric at cost, so I would have to charge more for it to be worth it to me to sell the kits.
That said, you can call the store in Orem and order a kit from them! They would be happy to sell one to you. The number is 801-802-7841. The kit costs $40 and includes everything for the top of the quilt, including the strips for a striped binding (as seen in these old photos.) You can also order yardage for the back if you like which is 1 1/4 yards at $9/yd. Shipping is $5, I think. (When I made the second quilt I used the binding strips for an outside border and bought some red fabric for the new binding. I also had to piece the back because the quilt top was bigger and therefore it required a bigger back.)
All that said, the craziness of this week is multiplying! And it’s not electrifying.
My husband just got back Saturday night after being out of town for most of the last week and a half. It was really nice to have some family time with him home! That, plus my kids are all crowding around me as I type because they want my attention or they want to use the computer. So I’m really behind on my email. If you’re still waiting for a response, I promise I am working through my list and I haven’t forgot you!
And the shop-hop preparations are calling my name too. Eek. I finished the third quilt this morning, now I need to bind that. So things are happening, it’s just kind of wild. (Not to sound like a whiner, it’s all good stuff, it’s just all at once!)
So watch for the Mr. Roboto tutorial later in the week. (I still haven’t even had a chance to list the quilt on etsy.) In the mean time, I have some cute new quilts to show this week too.
Thanks for bearing with me. Hope all this helps. Whew.
PS Speaking of Mr. Roboto, did anyone catch Wade Robson doing the robot dance on SYTYCD? Nice.
