    Dr Seuss Quilt

    My first quilt share here I made this for my daughter's therapist's new baby. My daughter (10y) picked the theme and helped with most of the fabrics. Turning Twenty is the pattern and it was quilted on my new-to-me-Bernina-QE440 (which I LOVE). Yup, that's my first feather We backed it in Red heart-embossed minky and I used machine faux-piped binding.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Sweet quilt! And I bet your daughter has enjoyed the whole process! Did she do any of the sewing or cutting?

    What a cheerful quilt! I'm sure your daughter's therapist will love it. It's great that your daughter picked the theme and helped with the fabrics. I bet she's just as proud as you. Thanks for sharing.

    I was right! Your quilt is super and your FMQ looks great. I see some meandering, zig zags, swirls and your feather, congratulations!

    I didn't have her help cutting -- she probably would have done fine but I am still a bit nervous of the blade.

    She all of the piecing for the top except the last 3 big row seams. It went OK, but her quarter inch got quite scant in a few places. I secretly sewed over those few places when she went to bed

    In the corner of the feather I also signed her name with a heart since it was gift -- she was really proud of the project.

    I have several projects in the works to spark my two girls sewing interest -- pillowcases, purses, aprons, simple doll quilts and anything else easy I can think of. For Easter instead of candy in a basket I gave them each a sewing basket.

    I love Dr. Suess. Your quilt brings back so many memories of when my children were small. The Cat in The Hat was always our favorite bedtime story. love your quilt.
