Bloggers Block and Dr. Seuss

I am sure you have noticed the lack of blogs, both in content and postings.  I seem to have Bloggers Block, a condition that I feel certain is not mine alone, but makes the rounds.  Is anyone immune?  Suggestions?  Anyway, I have been struggling lately.

But, I do have a quilt to show you, a cute baby quilt made from Dr. Seuss fabric.   
This fun quilt is a shower gift for my DIL and my soon to be grandson.

I cut circles out of the Dr. Seuss and appliqued the circle, and the left over part of the block onto white fabric.  I made two sizes of blocks, and put them together in random order.

This quit is especially crinkly.  I like it, but it may be a bit too crinkly.  Most of the time I do not pre-wash my fabrics, but I may have to reconsider this. 

The quilting is something I learned from Angela Walters new book,  Free Motion Quilting.  I love the concentric circles, it gives a new look to the spirals I do so often.  This was a really fun design to quilt, and I love the look of it.

Thanks for sticking with me and my blog, I appreciate it.



  1. Oh i have been the same! I have had so many different things going on the last couple of months. Things I havent faced before and just plain busy. I am visiting with my grandbabies at present so nothing else comes into focus. I think that is what blogging is about it has an ebb and flow, like life. Always like your blog. Keep on keeping on!

  2. Hi Esther

    Please keep on blogging, I love seeing what you are doing. What a very cute quilt pattern. I can just see that in Kiwiana fabrics. I'm with you on not pre washing fabrics. I love the crinkle look. A friend of mine irons here quilts!!!! Shock horror.
