commissioned Seuss quilt in progress



I'm working on a commissioned quilt for a special little boy using Robert Kaufman's Dr. Seuss fabrics and here are a few photos of it in progress. The buyer is allowing me to make whatever design I want, which is always fun! I used the Dr. Seuss panel as a staring point and fussy cut each design to use as the center of large improv log cabin blocks with big strips of the bold fabrics.



I love the little area of striped fabric in this block.




And the little fussy cut Cat face in the top tier is fun!





And here he is again with a little pink fish!


I'll be using solid white fabric for the sashing and borders. I'm not sure what the binding will be, but I'm thinking of using the aqua and red stripe. This quilt will be queen sized when it's finished, so I've still got quite a bit of work left to do!
