The Steam Punk Saga Continues!

One of the benefits of being in "getting ready to move" mode is that I packed up most of my fabric and projects.  I left out Steam Punk and a Gee's Bend project.  Since I don't have other options to distract me, I have been making quite a bit of progress on my Steam Punk blocks:

I have 29 blocks completed!  The pattern calls for 41, so I'm within striking range of finishing this puppy.  Now I have to go back to cutting out pieces as I have put together everything that I had assembly line cut out previously. 

Some of the blocks are more successful than others.  I think once all in their proper place, it will be a quite attractive quilt.  As I look at the blocks I can't say that I stuck to my "neutral palette" idea - there's alot of color in these blocks!

Are any of you working on steam punk blocks?  Am I the last remaining slacker, er, maker on the steam punk wagon?  Love to hear from some other steam punkers.

Aaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household!


  1. They look great! I like that there are some bold color choices mixed in with your neutrals. Making a dozen more will be a piece of cake, right? It would be fitting to piece it together at the retreat this year.....just sayin'
