Eli's Quilt

Edit: I've entered this quilt in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival.
Be sure and pop over and check out all the wonderful entries!
In November I was asked to make a baby quilt in Dr Seuss fabrics. My time was limited as the baby was due in January. I managed to get the quilt to the basted stage before we took off for Albany.


Baby Eli arrived on January 6 and is a lovely, healthy boy.

I managed simple straight-line quilting and finished the binding last night. I washed it this morning and it will be delivered this afternoon.
The baby is not yet a month old so according to
Quilters' Standard Time, I'm right on schedule...

The quilt is approximately 40 inches by 49 inches.

I'd say you are way ahead of schedule based on Quilter's Time Standards! Dr. Suess is so much fun. Don't you just love a freshly made & washed quilt? Delightful.
