last bee square purchase brightMy favorite fabric store, Bee Square Fabrics, is going out of business. This is the shop that sponsored the Dr. Seuss quilt contest. So a few weeks ago I made my final purchase from her ginormous 50% off sale. And as sad as I am to see Diane go, I’m kind of giddy over my haul. Some of these are prints I’ve had my eye on for ages, and they were hugely discounted (you never see these prints on sale). So now they’re sitting on my cutting table, taunting me. I’ll have to make some really exceptionally cool things with this stash as a proper farewell to Bee Square. But not until school gets out. Nothing fun happens until school gets out. *4 more days*

table runner fabrics

I tied for 3rd place in the Bee Square Fabrics Dr. Seuss quilt contest. Yay!

The first new project I’m starting this spring is another table runner like the Christmas Runner. I liked it so much, and it was such a great project for practicing applique and hand sewing that I decided to make a year-round runner to leave on our dining room table. This project of course came from the supremely inspiring Purl Bee, and it was originally conceived as a Thanksgiving Runner. The benefit of having made one already is that I already know measurements and difficulty, and now I can tweak to make it better.

Vote for my quilt, I’m number 8! The survey is working now. Based on the comments the popular vote seems to be going to the easily identifiable Dr. Seuss themes, so I’m taking the underdog stance. This is fun!

It’s done! And I love it.

I got Adam to take the pictures because clearly his camera is better than mine, and I wanted these photos to look different from my usual standing-over-project pose that makes it look like a narrowing hallway towards the top. So the whole thing is based roughly on the Any Way You Slice It quilt from Denyse Schmidt Quilts. I didn’t use a pattern, though, and I only made one kind of square. The finished size is roughly 6″ x 7″ and Adam has commented that it will make an exciting hot plate after this competition is done.

dr. seuss quilt topOther posts on this project: Dr. Seuss Quilt Pt. 1, Dr. Seuss Quilt Pt. 2.

The quilt top is done for Bee Square’s Dr. Seuss quilt contest. I haven’t been able to concentrate on sewing much the past week or so, so it’s taken me a while to get this sewn together. I also couldn’t decide if this would be the final layout, and I played with a lot of different options. In the end I decided that this is the one I liked the best.
