One Thing, One Week Challenge

I recently stumbled upon this challenge and decided it was the motivation I needed to get my booty into motion.

Way back in October, I found this Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat fabric that I couldn’t resist (see prior posts to understand fabric addiction).  I decided I would make twin size quilts for my twins…kind of redundant.  When I opened the box and the boys saw the Dr. Seuss fabric, their eyes lit up.  When I said that the fabric was for them, they lit up even more.  At this point, I realized the only thing I’ve made for them were some little boy ties.  They just kept saying, “You’re going to sew that for me.”  It was enough to make my heart melt.  Of course, in the middle of all of this we moved, so the quilts got put on the back burner.  I read this blog about the One Thing, One Week Challenge and decided to enter…here is my first finished quilt!

    I am sure your boys are elated to have such a wonderful quilt made by their mama! I have a ton of the Dr. Suess fabric…I think it’s time to cut into it…thanks for the inspiration!

    I guess I forgot to keep checking out your blog somewhere along the way! That quilt is adorable! I love the studio shots…now I can see where the magic happens! Your fabric addiction has become my cute Lucy Jane stuff, so it works for me!

      Thanks for all the nice comments. I received a hand-stitched quilt on my wedding day from my grandma. She made one for each of her thirteen grandkids for their wedding day. She passed away when I was just in grade school, so this quilt was made for me when I was just a little girl. It really meant a lot to me to give that same kind of gift to my little boys.

    My boys love it when I make quilts for them. I am sure your boys will treasure theirs. The one you completed is adorable.
