Recently my husband’s cousin had a baby, so I had a great excuse to make a quilt. I found a fat quarter bundle of Dr. Seuss fabric that I thought would be fun to work with and set about drawing up a pattern. The bundle included a bunch of panels, so I drew up my pattern to highlight those panels.
I pieced it during an Albuquerque Modern Quilt Guild sew day – it came together quickly. I also found a digital edge to edge fish pattern that was so cute I couldn’t resist.
This is the finished quilt – it was cloudy the day we took photos, so unfortunately there are a bunch of shadows.
and the back:
this is the best photo for seeing the cute fish and loops edge to edge design:
I hope Gary’s cousin loves this quilt!
This was on my Q2’18 FAL list, so I will link up at the end of the quarter.
It’s a really cute kids quilt. My two year old grandson loves that book. It’s such a classic. I’m glad you showed the closeup of the quilting because I really wanted to see the fish.
Thanks! I really love the Dr. Seuss fabric and had a good time working with it. The fish quilting pattern came out so great too – I don’t want to go down the rabbit hole of buying a ton of pantographs, but the fish were really just too cute! Maybe you should make one for your grandson too…? 🙂
How cute! Such a lucky baby! The fish quilting is too perfect and so fun!! This is a lovely quilt and will be loved for a long time, I’m sure.
Thanks! I love the fishes too. I do really hope she loves the quilt.
Now this is just adorable! Great use of those panels and the label on the back is perfection! Thanks for linking up on behalf of the 2018 global Finish-A-Long hosts.
I made a Dr. Seuss quilt as well and really like the fish design. did you design it yourself or purchase it?
