Sharing a peek at my morning’s endeavors: starting an improvisationally pieced baby quilt for my soon-to-be-nieces.
When this line came out four or five years ago I bought a fat quarter pack and some yardage because my sister-in-law is a huge Dr Seuss fan. It never occurred to me that the line would have so much staying power and that various spin-offs of it would be around when they were ready to have kids! (Although I am partial to several of these original prints that I don’t see around anymore.) 🙂
And a peek at how I work with these improve quilts. I have a specific backing I’m working with so I laid out the cut picture panels and then just start piecing. One of the things you have to keep in mind is where you will place your final seams to join it all together. I hate Y seams so I avoid them. I usually also try to avoid having the main seams of the quilt run along the halfway mark. I’ve added little lines so you can see what I’m working toward right now. That panel with the quote is being very troublesome–it keeps wanting to sit right in the middle of that seam. That one is going to be trouble!
