Dr Seuss Quilt Progress

I have been working on the Dr Seuss Quilt.

I finished the top on Saturday

2 1

I got it layered and pin basted and marked.  I used a  small plate to mark the overlapping circles and then quilted them.

Now I am going back and adding the additional quilting.

The back is actually a light blue flannel but it came out white in the picture

I am using a very thick tan thread and only about 6 stitches per inch (utility/big stitch quilting).  There really was not a color of thread to use that would blend in because of all the different colors in the blocks so I decided on a somewhat neutral color.

It is going very fast so I might be ready to bind it by tomorrow.

The binding will be the same brown as the sashing.

I will post pictures of that as soon as I finish.

Meanwhile it is 3 degrees outside and will go down to negative 7 tonight with windchill temps of negative 35.  We had well over a foot of snow yesterday (drifts 24 inches +) and everything in the city is closed.  What else can a person do but quilt?

Stay warm and Happy Quilting

    I have been checking out your blog for a few months now and am really dazzled, both by the completed quilts, and the volume of work you put out!

    Very cool quilt — I love the dark sashing, and the circle quilting over those blocks is so “Dr. Seussy” — perfect. Tim, you are amazing.

    Your quilt looks great. I have this fabric and I love what you did with yours.

    … and from 29C tropical Australia at 7.50am! I love your big circle quilting, and think it’ll work well on a quilt I’m planning. Thanks for the inspiration!

  10. What better to do than quilt in that cold! Fab quilting 😄

    Love the quilting design! Perfect for this fun quilt!

  12. Kristen says:

    Good gosh, man — you are a quilting dervish! I like the dark side, am liking it very much for the context and the non-cutesieness for a little crib/boy quilt.

  13. Francie says:

    HOLY MOLY!!! I can’t believe how quick you are…and yet it is a beauty.
    What boy/man wouldn’t want that sweet quilt as a reminder of his Uncle. I am sure it will be passed on to his little one some day. The babies in your family are very lucky to have such a generous and kind Uncle!
    Yup, up here we are shivering pretty good too. AHHHH..wood stove heat is lovely. But I am not going out unless I have too. I’ll bet Teddy isn’t crazy about this frigid weather. Stay warm you two!

  14. Ginney says:

    This is very cute! I can’t believe how quickly you have got so much done on it.

  15. Pam Gardner says:

    my grand kids would adore this one. Good quilting weather-I can.t believe how very cold it is! My poor dogs don’t even want to go out.
