    Great quilt and wonderful story! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

  2. This is such a sweet sweet quilt with a wonderful story! Every quilt has a story and why not a story about stories of Dr. Seuss. I need to take more time to tell my quilt stories as I blog.

      I agree – how many times do you get to here the impact a quilt might have on a recipient?! We are so blessed to have been a part of this story and to be able to share it. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Wonderful quilt for a wonderful story. That was amazingly fast, but how terrific you could do that for her.

    I’m looking at your lovely quilt and feeling bad that I never purchased the Dr. Seuss Book Cover fabric and then I saw it wasn’t fabric but actual book covers–very cool and I don’t feel so bad now. I do have some Dr. Seuss which has been sitting in my stash and one day when the granddaughter is old enough, I can make her a quilt with it. I love this quilt.

      Hi Rose,
      I know it’s still out there – MSQC and Fat Quarter Shop for sure. I think I have enough of the covers, etc. to make one more baby quilt. After a break, and after the Regatta . . . maybe. I’m looking forward to seeing the Princess quilt for your little Princess. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Oh that’s a gorgeous quilt and an even better story behind it – what an honour to make something that means so much to the recipient 🙂

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Carie,
      I know, right?! I had no idea about the back story until today when Keri shared it. I am really honored – now I hope she loves it as much as I think she will. 😐 ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Roseanne, you guys do such a wonderful job! The quilt looks so adorable. I’m certain they will fall in love with it the minute they open the package. Great job! 🙂

    I cannot believe you finished so quickly. I am IN LOVE with my quilt and I truly can’t wait to receive it!

    Just to add on to this story for your lovely readers of how much this quilt means to me. My mom’s birthday is March 2nd (Dr. Seuss’ birthday) her name is Cindy Lou (yes, like in the Grinch, though it’s actually spelled differently), and she was a preschool teacher for a number of years so I’ve been around kids and Dr. Seuss books literally my whole life. I was raised on them myself. She’s got a collection of Dr. Seuss books and stuffed animals from her teaching days that is going to be passed on to me one day for my future kids, and so I’ve started a collection of my own. I’ve got a few books but I mostly collect Funko pops (since Mom has the books and stuffed animals covered). I’ve also even got a Dr. Seuss tattoo on my foot! So needless to say Dr. Seuss is a huge part of my life. But something extra special was missing for me to have as a family heirloom all my own. And when I saw that quilt on your Etsy page…made out of the actual book covers (not just random Seuss prints like every other blanket or quilt I’ve seen) I knew I had to have it. I actually teared up a bit out of excitement. So thank you for making this a literal dream come true for me. This quilt means more to me than you will ever know, and is truly something special. I can’t wait to take a picture with it once I receive it! 🙂

      Hi Keri,
      OMG – this is just sooooo cool. I hope everyone reads this comment. I’m going to copy it and update the post. Or I can wait for your photos . . . . . . . . oh, what to do, what to do. I’ll wait for the photos. No, I’ll do both! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Love this quilt! You guys are moving very, very fast…….SLOW DOWN…’re making me look bad! Ha!

    • Roseanne says:

      HAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s it. That’s all I’ve got for the rest of the month. The Regatta is barely started and I don’t care. You could never look bad in my eyes. May I remind you of a certain Postcard Quilt?!! That IS getting finished this year, oh Queen of the Quilts Shannon. ~smile~ Roseanne

    You gals are on a roll-keep it going!! Does Sue get all the binding work?

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      Well, that roll is about to stop. HAHA! No, Sue doesn’t get all the bindings but she is super duper fast at them. I love doing it but I am pokey, so when something needs to get in the mail she’s our go-to gal. She got it all finished in one evening!! ~smile~ Roseanne

  10. Gretchen says:

    Very pretty quilt, how wonderful you’ve already crossed off a OMG off the list!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Gretchen,
      I have never completed a quilt so quickly. Nose to the grindstone, I guess. HAHA! ~smile~ Roseanne
