Dr Seuss Finished!!!

Another Finish....Yay! 
Even though this wasn't a biggin', It's still a finish and deserves a pat on the back.  Right?  Right.
This little puppy gave me some fits believe it or not.  I thought I would quilt the chevron print and didn't bother to mark anything before basting.  BAD, BAD IDEA! 
Lesson learned......Always have a concrete plan when it comes to quilting the top.  I ended up taking a bunch of stuff out that I didn't like, went back and forth numerous times between my walking foot and my other thingy for free motion quilting :) 
I ended up marking the top AFTER all my pins were in.  Not cool.  I don't want to do that again.  Like I said, lesson learned. 

When all was said and done I marked a chevron pattern on the panel and just did straight lines in the border. 
I made this quilt to donate as an auction item for my mother in laws cancer benefit next month.  Hoping there are some Dr. Seuss and/or quilt lovers in attendance!
And this time I remembered to get LOTS of pictures beforehand. 


  1. Your quilt turned out adorable! I am sure it will do well at the auction! Don't we all have those "issues" from time to time! I consider them character building:)
