Last Quilt With a Deadline . . .

Well at least for now!!!  This darling quilt is for the 12 year old daughter of a a single young Mom who wanted to give her kid a great gift!!

Liz had cut the blocks and she cut a million of them (there are still enough blocks left over to make another huge quilt) but just was so busy that she could not get them into a quilt.   So she asked me to help her get it done!!

Her daughter loves Cat in the Hat, so here is what we came up with ~

The sashing, border and binding is the same stripe as the Cat's Hat!  Pretty cute, huh!!  And we used a few extra blocks on the back side for a bit of fun!!

And because this quilt was already so whimsical, Sue over at Summit Creek Quilts did a fun, swirly overall quilt and I decided to add a bit more fun to the binding in several places!!

Mom comes over tomorrow to get the quilt and will give it to her daughter this weekend!!  Then they are all moving to Texas!!  We'll miss you Liz and family!!

Nice job, Kris!
Are you doing any "quilting" lately? (I don't mean the piecing.)

This is really cute and I like the circle quilting to calm all those stripes. Just FUN

This is such a cute quilt. The Cat in the Hat is always fun

Love the quilt. The disappearing 9 patch is such a great block and the funky binding just adds that bit more. Well done
