Another Dr Seuss colourway

A few weeks ago I posted a quick and easy baby quilt made from Dr Seuss 6″ squares.  You can see that post here if you missed it.

Here’s a second version of the quilt, made for another dear relative who is due to have her first baby in August.  I think I am even happier with this version!  It was another mother-daughter effort.

It’s the same basic concept – same size coloured patches, same number of coloured patches, but this time there is a 1.5″ white sashing between each coloured patch.

What is great about that is that it gives each of the bright colours a bit of space to shine – and a moment for the eye to focus on each one before the next colour hits the eye.

Backed in yellow Dr Seuss fabric that is nice and busy, it is bright and practical without being overwhelming.  The binding is a blue fabric with the head of The Cat in the Hat all over it.

I hope it is well received!  I put it in the post for the lucky recipient on Friday, so it won’t be long until it adorns the nursery in its new home.  Now we just need that baby to arrive safely and enjoy it!

Have a great day,
