Green Eggs & Ham

Last finish for the Pregnancy Care Centre Sew-Along!


This is one of my favourites! It was super fun to put together, using mostly a Green Eggs & Ham panel by Robert Kaufman and other Dr Suess fabrics donated by FatQuarterShop, and a few coordinates from Suzanne. Fairly straightforward, except that the panel was printed a little crooked so each piece needed to be trimmed quite a bit.  I'm hoping this one can be used as a baby quilt and transition to a toddler quilt, as it's a fair size at 33" x 46", or even a play quilt.

The back is all the leftover pieces pieced together! You can really see my quilting on the back of this one - white on red. I did some straight-line quilting, corner to corner on the rectangles, zigzagging back and forth up the quilt, then filled in a diamond shape in each section, and then did free-motion spirals in the centre of each diamond.

  1. Love it! I'm trying to figure out the whole free motion quilting--it looks so easy but shucks, it's difficult!

  2. It looks great Laura!! I like the quilting! Do you still have the quilts at home or have you passed them on already. I want to touch them :)
