Suessing another quilt



Contrary to evidence, I'm not a massive fan of quilting.  But the fabrics are so wonderfully bright and cheery - and they're stash from impulse purchases as well as the early days of sewing.  This is the second of my Dr Suess quilts from fabric purchased when a local quilting shop was going out of business.  I supplemented this with quite a bit of yellow to make up the full quilt top.  It makes use of my usual cheat of fleece as both backing and batting.



I think the quilting on this actually works quite well - I used wavy lines in every second piecing.



Excuse the wrinkles, I used spray adhesive to put the quilt top on the fleece backing so its still quite 'stuck' together.



I bought the fleece to use as blankets for our wedding with the intention of turning them into quilts afterwards so its nice to see it being used as intended.
