When I was home for Christmas, I raided my mom's Seuss stash to get fabric for this quilt. She gave me the Cat in the Hat panel and some coordinating FQs, I wonkified (it's a word) them, added some solids, and this quilt was born.
Kind of hard to see the quilting, but it's loopy. I used light gray thread. I intended to use white, but when I started quilting I realized I was all out (egad!). It was about 9 p.m., so I went with gray. I was a little worried, but I think it looks fine.
For the back, I used a yard of the Celebrate Seuss All-Over Blue, and then added some leftover Cat in the Hat fabic to make it big enough. The quilt measures about 44x48.
Love the Seuss Squiggle Stripes for binding!
This will be heading to my cousin and his wife, who are having a baby soon (and decorating the nursery in a Seuss theme). Hope it's well-loved!
