    This is the second Dr Seuss quilt I made for her. It was supposed to be the backing for the first quilt above but I decided to make a separate quilt out of it. These all all leftovers from the first quilt.

    How cute are they. I love the tilted abc blocks on the 2nd quilt and the bright colors on the first.

    Dr. Seuss and his characters are so adorable to use in a child's quilt. Job well done! Two quilts for the price of one.

    Thanks everyone. I had to get the ABC panel to put her name in the 4 corners of the first quilt - NOVA. They were fun to make.

    I just picked up a Dr. Seuss panel. All the old "favorite" books of my daughter. Her hubby (24) never had Dr. Seuss read to him as a kid (I know right? Live under a rock??), so she made him sit down with her one afternoon and read them. He thought they were a hoot! I'll look back on these to use as a guideline when I start mine. Thanks so much for sharing!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
