Here's a quilt I made when my LQS (local quilt shop) hosted a Dr. Seuss challenge. We quilters scooped up as many Thing 1's, Hortons, Grinches and Cat in the Hats as we could carry and made them into something bright and colorful.
I had seen the Twister and Lil' Twister patterned quilts and knew this was my plan for these fabrics. For the free motion quilting, I made swirls that look like Thing 1 and Thing 2's hair and I made duck feet flowers. I'm grateful for a DVD by Myrna Ficken, which expanded my quilting skills and provided ideas for this quilt.
There's about a 4 inch square left over when using the larger Twister. So I made 4 patches and added the black pieces left over from the first border, used the Twister ruler again and came up with this one. I've pieced a back with the final scraps of my Seuss fabrics and this one is waiting it's turn to be quilted.
There's a string quilt on the frame today. It will bring cheer and comfort to my Aunt Helen, who's fighting breast cancer right now. I hope I can share it with you soon.
The birds are happy today. Lots of chirps and whistles. They must be as thrilled as I am to see the dogwoods blossom. I absolutely love Spring!
