    For a true Dr. Seuss lover! Great job, and that quilt was a ton of work. That embroidery was perfect and you do qualify as a quilter.

    I am starting a rag quilt for my grandson. I now have to rethink how I am going to do it. Your quilts are just great. Love the colors and the words. Both quilts are special. You are such a QUILTER don't let anyone say otherwise. Love them both. BrendaK

    Your quilt is fabulous. The colours are beautiful and so is the hard work that you put into creating this masterpiece.

    This looks colorful and comfy, yes I would say you are a quilter. Be careful this can be habitforming and once you get the bug you never look for the cure. LOL

    Your embroidery is phenomenal. What a steady hand you have. Can't believe the work you put into this and it shows. But then grandchildren are more than worth it aren't they? Keep designing, you definitely have a talent. Can't wait to see more!

    What an adorable quilt! You should be very proud---and ARE a quilter! Tell your hubby that this idea was not a dangerous idea---it was a fantastic idea.

I hooped the fabric, then just started sewing on a straight stich with a embroider foot (I have a Brother embroidery machine-but this is free hand embroidery). It is like coloring with thread.
    Wow! I am really impressed! I thought this was computerized machine embroidery. You free handed this!?---you have an amazing talent.

    I saw the post on your other rag quilt and this one is just a wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    Oh gosh! How wonderful is that? The quilt is ideal - colors are bright, and the subject is perfect. Besides, who wouldn't like to snuggle with a great rag quilt like this? Thanks sew much for sharing.
