Default Dr. Seuss for grandson

I originally had the Cat in the Hat fabric but found the panel for the Grinch while at a fabric store, so I had to make this quilt reversible. The pillowcase was an afterthought, using the Missouri Quilt pillowcase tutorial--the easiest part of the whole project! (the quilt is in the pillowcase) The quilting isn't too great, but I haven't figured out how to do more than straight lines on my sewing machine. (Grandson--in my avatar--loves the Seuss books he has.)

Adorable. All of it. My son is 15 and my daughter 19 but both had a complete set of Dr Seuss books but my son loved them most. I Have some fabric and will use it for grandchildren one day. I love what you have done.

Love what you've done. I, too read the Seuss books (many times) to my two children when they were little. Great series.
