An embarrassing confession

So, I have a bit of an embarrassing confession to make. Some of you who have been around here for a while may know that my quilts are generally gifts or donated. What you may not realize, is that after 3 years of quilting, I still had not made my very own son a quilt. In fact, we didn't have a single quilt we kept in the house - every single one had gone out the door. When my husband, who is completely disinterested in quilting, said the next one really should be for Paul, I knew I needed to put this right.

Dr. Seuss Quilt

I had purchased this fabric to make him a quilt back when he was still an infant. I love Dr. Seuss, and I felt it was something he could grow with over time. It seems it was a good choice, because all along the way I could barely keep the WIP away from him. He was all ready to take it to be with him when it was nothing more than a top. It was pretty adorable. :)

Dr. Seuss Quilt

Since it came with a number of panels, I decided not to use a pattern and instead designed the quilt around those panels and the quantities of each fabric I had on hand. I used the stripes together with the panels to create a bit of a filmstrip effect across the quilt, and filled in between with the prints.

The back was pieced with the remaining fabric and a solid blue I had purchased along with the original fabric. I made sure to save enough of that red binding for a stripe-y binding. I love a good striped binding.

Dr. Seuss Quilt

I chose a large meander for the quilting. It actually gives the feeling of large puzzle pieces, which I thought fit perfectly with the juvenile theme of this quilt.

I am glad my son cares for it, and has something more special to snuggle up with at night. He seems to appreciate that it was "Made by Mommy", despite his young age. There is not much that could melt a mommy's heart more than that.
