One thing: One Week Challenge from Amy, #3: Seussing it up

Another challenge from Amy. 

 This month, I am allowing a week to decide which layout and companion fabrics I will use for my Dr. Seuss tops.  There are so many possiblities and layouts that it is hard to decide.  I really hate to cut into it,,,I have enough fabric for at least 3 tops because I have that many "panels" of "pages" of  The Cat in the Hat.  But I need to decide how to "Seuss" it up a little, or a lot, and would like all of them to be slightly different.

It will be fun to experiment, and hopefully, I can use EQ6 to help.  It has been so long since I used the program, I might have to practice a little. 

I am even looking forward to using the "scrap stash" I will have left over!!

I can't wait to see what you do with the Dr. Seuess fabrics! I went on, and they only had 3 available, maybe due to selling out (my LQS is not carrying them...bummer). I hope to catch up with them somewhere.

I enjoyed finding your blog (which I found from you commenting on MINE!). I was intrigued by your header picture and was pleased to actually find an explanation of the origin. At first, I thought it was Fred Astaire, photocropped onto the background picture. How delightful to find it is your Great Grandfather!! Very handsome, he was...and quite the hoofer himself! LOL

I am thankful and humbled that you have my blog on your side bar...thank you! I'll be back!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

The Dr. Suess is one I haven't seen until I stumbled on your blog. How cute!!! I don't know who I would make a Cat in the Hat quilt for right now, but I think a panel of that should be in every quilter's stash. Maybe tomorrow I'll make a trip up to my LQS to look for it. I don't know how you would make the quilts different. You know even though my kids are grown and have left home, I still saved the Dr. Suess books. I'll check back to see how you've used the panel.
