The Lorax Quilt is Finished

I started this Lorax quilt quilt ages ago.  I quilted it as planned with the Zephyr, panto that looks like the Truffula trees .. and then it just hung out on the quilt frame like clothes on a tread mill for months!  Finally during my unexpected break from work I got around to putting the binding on it.

I suppose it is controversial to quilt right over the Lorax but I don’t think it matters to him. Think of it as a screen overlay and don’t worry about adding a panto over a panel.  I think it works just fine.


The Lorax Plan

I have been putting a few quick quilts together to practice on my new quilt machine and I found myself at FatQuarterShop.com this morning looking at Dr. Seuss fabric panels.

I ended up putting a quick quilt plan together based on my Grinch Quilt.  I picked out the fabrics to go with the colors in the panel and once I get started putting this quilt top together I will improvise with borders around each panel block.

What I did was copy and paste images of the fabrics in a Microsoft Word document to see how everything will look together.  How do you plan your quilts?

Here is a picture of the Grinch Quilt.  I will use a similar approach for the Lorax Quilt.
