Coop’s Cat in the Hat Quilt

Cat In the Hat Quilt 01

 

My son loves all of the Dr. Seuss books, I’ve always loved reading them to him and now days with him.  Most of them he knows off my heart.  It is of no wonder that he put an order in for a Dr. Seuss, Cat in the Hat quilt.  It did take me a little while to start the quilt, Coops would kindly remind me each time we went in into my local quilting shop that he would like a Cat in the Hat quilt.  Now it is finally finished and he (and myself) are ecstatic.

It is actually a rather large quilt as it has to fit his king single bed.  I kept the design simple highlighting the Cat in the Hat panel, by Robert Kaufman.  I of course did quite a bit of googling before deciding how to show case the panel, and played around with measurements so it would fit Coopies bed.

I must confess the quilting was done my my good friends at The Patchwork Pear, another local quilting shop.  I wanted a simple design, not to curvy, that complemented the quilt.  This design is just perfect for a little boys quilt!  Thank you for such a wonderful job.

Triangle Baby Quilt Top

 

Zoes Triangle Top Quilt

 

I am so excited to finish this quilt top for Zoe, the first two rows were finished before she was born…..she is now 15 months old, hmm.   I did not realise just how busy I was with a new baby in the house, I put the quilt down for a week and the next thing I know it’s been one and half years.

The quilt started with a google search of “modern baby quilts”, and  instantly fell in love with the ombre style quilts, especially Ombre Love, by Canoe Ridge Creations.   After a long search I decided on modern ombre + b/w triangle quilt by See Kate Sew.  I had to go out and buy more fabric to finish it however, with Zoe is no longer a newborn (sob sob) I added an extra row to give a little more length, it’s now the perfect size for her.  Can’t ,wait to pin together this coming week and start the best part ..quilting!  Oh but what design to use.
