    I, too, recently found this Cat in the Hat panel. Haven't decided what to do with it yet. I have nieces and nephews adding to the family on a regular basis, so it will become a baby quilt at some point.

    Yup I did buy the 2 yards white fabric for my butterfly quilt. I am thinking I should take a trip back for more of the Cat in the hat fabric...love it. The quilt will be for my son and his baby. My son is the one who asked for a cat in the hat for his future baby so that he could hang out on the couch with the baby with the quilt...he does have two other quilts that I have made that he uses. He has been asking for a Dr. Suess quilt even before he was expecting...LOL. I emailed him the fabric that I just found and he loves it and now wants a pillow case. Love how he is still a big kid at heart at 26.

    Great fine.
    I need to ask you..Is DH related to mine. I often get him to a quilt shop and he sits in the car or on a chair near the exit.

    Too funny.

    Ben Franklin is a great place to get quilt quality fabric!! I love it...though its a little more than an hour away. The prices are GREAT! They also have a website. I buy my locker hooking supplies from them also. They charge 3.99 regular price where as Joanns charges 9.99 for the same item.

    Oh, that is some beautiful fabric of the cat in the hat. Is the information about the fabric in the salvage so I can order some. Don't have a Ben Franklin here.
