DrEAMi Dr. Seuss Project Complete
For the last Saturday in December, and actually the last Saturday of 2018, we participated in a Drop Everything And Make It link up. Is is hosted by Sandra at mmm Quilts on the last day of each month. This Dr. Seuss project really exemplifies the whole definition of a DrEAMi project. We started it on Friday afternoon, and had it together and posted by Saturday afternoon.
We Love Dr. Seuss
This is the third Dr. Seuss quilt top we have made in recent memory. Both of the earlier two versions were commissioned ones. The first was for a sweet baby, Gavin. The second one was for a friend in Texas named Keri who has a collection of all things Dr. Seuss. We were honored to make a quilt for both Gavin and Keri!
The Same Yet Different
As you can see above, we used pre-printed panel squares in this quilt. Some of these same panel squares showed up in both Gavin and Keri’s version of the quilt pictured below. Gavin’s on the left was sashed with navy Kona fabric, while Keri chose black as her frames.
All three quilt tops were quilted in the same crosshatch pattern. One of my favorite stories by Dr. Seuss is How the Grinch Stole Christmas and that is another come panel square in all three quilts.
Our Last Dr. Seuss Quilt
This whole quilt top came from our stash! This may begin to get me out of the no-more-fabric-to-be-purchased hole I dug myself into. All that remains of our Seuss-themed fabric is about a fat quarter. That’s a great de-stash project, wouldn’t you say?!
You will find this quilt listed in our Etsy shop if you’re interested.
