In honour of Dr. Seuss' birthday ....!

I'm still in my "clear projects out" mode and decided it was time to finish a quilt that my little Pumpkin started approximately six (6) years ago - Dr. Seuss The Lorax quilt! I love the Lorax! I met him on our Universal Vacation back in 2015.

Slowly, after a couple of years, the quilt was brought to the stage of blocks completely pieced. It was just a question of putting it all together to create a quilt top. I did fussy cut the horizontal sashing, as it was a tad advance for a 13 year old!

There the blocks laid, in my closet, awaiting Pumpkin to pick the project back up again.  After a few years of just gathering dust, I decided that it was time for me to take matters into my own hands and get the quilt done.

Ta da!

It has since been machine quilted, washed and, I even had enough of The Lorax backing fabric to make a pillow case, all in time for her surprised visit last weekend. My goal was to have it done by March 10! Ah! Beat that goal! Yea!

Oh, she was surprised and so delighted! She actually brought it back to college with her! Can you see my big grin?

The actual name of the quilt is called The Need for Theeds, designed by Rachel Griffith for Robert Kaufman   It is a free pattern and you can obtain a copy of the pattern here.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyber space! Catch you later! Cheers!

Well done you!!
Such pretty fabrics. I don't remember the line of fabric but maybe it wasn't around much over here. Keep up that finishing streak!

That is a fun quilt and so nice that you could finish it for her, and surprise her.

It turned out so cute and I'll bet she was thrilled with it.
