Other posts on this project: Dr. Seuss Quilt Pt. 1.

I finished the top! And I did it in time for Dr. Seuss’s birthday on Saturday, which seemed fitting.

The sashing was a little tricky to sew on once I’d assembled the blocks with the flaps…I had to be really careful not to sew the flaps down. But once I got the hang of it things moved along pretty easily. I’m surprised how quickly this came together, and how much I love the look of it.

The flaps aren’t perfect, but who cares? H is going to have a blast with this when it’s all finished.

I’d originally invited some mom friends over for Dr. Seuss Day on Saturday. I’ve had this idea of starting a Mommy and Me book club for a while, so Dr. Seuss Day seemed like a great day to start. (Really, I thought it would just be cool to get the young moms and kids I know together, and I love anything with a theme). But, Saturday turned out to be horrible for everyone. We will try again next month, but my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew CJ did come over to hang out for a couple of hours. So I put the quilt top down and let them test drive it.

CJ approves.

H gives him the side-eye. Sassafras.
