Dr. Seuss quilt

Not only did our family welcome Braden this summer, we welcomed a new cousin. Baby E was born 10 days after Braden. She's the third girl in her family, and mom loves Dr. Seuss - so we went bright and bold! This is her quilt.  It's pretty straight and simple piecing.

In the corner I have a little red heart - a detail I try and include somewhere on all my niece's quilts.  The yellow border fabric just has some simple yellow lines.  Three of them - she is the third child after all.

The middle blocks also have hearts and swirls quilted inside of them.

The red binding is the same fabric as the middle sashing.  The backing has characters from many of the popular Dr. Seuss books.

The red sashing has phrases from Dr. Seuss books.  Along one edge, "A person's a person no matter how small".
