    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.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

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

    CUTE CUTE CUTE. I did a Cat In the Hat quilt this past summer. I never thought about doing a reversible one with the Grinch. I have the Grinch fabric sitting on my shelf.

    I think that is the panel I just bought. You have given me some great ideas on how to use it. Thanks.

    Great idea making your Dr.Seuss quilt reversible. My grandson has a Dr.Seuss themed room and he loves the colors and characters. You did good!
