Looking for a fun, beginner friendly pattern? This one is for you! Robo Confetti is a playful quilt pattern that works great with a rainbow fabric collection like Robo Boogie.

Materials

The pattern used 5 and 2 1/2 inch squares, which make the pattern very suitable for a 10 x 10″ pre-cut. Here’s a list of what you need to make this 50 x 63″ quilt.

  • a 10 x 10″ pre-cut cut into:
    • 77 times a 5 inch square
    • 77 times 2 1/2 inch square
  • 2 yard of background fabric cut into:
    • 77 times 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch
    • 77 times 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch
    • 77 times 2 x 3 1/2 inch
    • 77 times 2 x 5 inch

Pattern

The quilt is assembled by alternating 5 inch blocks and the Robo Confetti block. You will need to make 77 Robo Confetti blocks. These can be made with foundation paper piecing, or regular piecing.

Block assembly

Follow these steps to sew a Robo Confetti block. All measurements include a 1/4″ seam allowance. You can use the FPP pattern if you prefer that technique over regular piecing.

1) Start with a 2 1/2 inch square and a 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch background piece.

2) Add the 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch background piece.

3) Add the 2 x 3 1/2 inch background piece.

4) Add the 2 x 5 inch background piece.

This will leave you with a 5 inch (unfinished) Robo Confetti block.

Quilt assembly

Now sew the blocks together, alternating the 5 inch blocks and the Robo Confetti blocks. I first put all the blocks on my design wall and re-positioned them until I was happy with the layout.

Then you can sew all the blocks together. Pick a method that works best for you. Maybe you want to sew them together in bigger blocks of 3 x 3 first and them assemble the quilt.

Another option is to chain piece them together, sewing all rows together, and the join those rows into a quilt top.

And there you will have your quilt top finished! I quilted the quilt with straight lines to accentuate the bigger squares in the quilt.

Let me know who you’re going to make this quilt for!

Happy quilting!

Hugs,
Irene
