Cat in the Hat Quilt
The third installment of my Dr. Seuss related creations is finally here! The Cat in the Hat Quilt. As with the Lorax quilt no pattern was used. I had a plan in mind starting the the Cat in the hat panel in the center and then to make wonky blocks with clean white borders around them. The result was to make the inner pieces of the blocks crooked and then square them up.
Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of this quilt as well as the Lorax quilt before giving them to my nephews (it was a crazy time - they were given to them about a day or so before my wedding) so I had my brother-in-law send me some pictures of the quilts.
The back of the quilt is a royal blue Kona Cotton inlaid with some more Seuss fabric for added interest. For quilting I machined quilted diagonally across this quilt in a royal blue thread. Same quilting design as the lorax quilt but with thread that matched this quilt.
Binding was the same as the Lorax quilt and I just adore the look of it against the royal blue backing. I think it really pops!
Hope you guys enjoyed seeing the quilt as much as I enjoyed making it!
