WIP Wednesday

This is what's on my sewing table this week:
Dr. Seuss fabrics
 One of the most viewed items on my blog and in my Etsy shop has been my Dr. Seuss quilt. I made two late last fall and both were sold quickly. I love piecing these baby quilts as I think about the Dr. Seuss stories that I read to my kids when they were little. Some of my favourite times with them were reading stories and now I get to read to my grandkids!
Cutting up Thing One and Thing Two!
I've cut up enough fabric to make two more along with a couple other projects. This is what the finished baby quilt will look like:

 After cutting up Dr. Seuss, I took a quick trip to the mail box at the end of the road and found all kinds of quilting goodies!  I've been waiting since the beginning of February for this special fabric to make my mini quilt for my swap partner. The theme for Feb/Mar swap of the MiniQT group on Flickr was movies. Sneak peeks are just beginning to be posted. The popcorn fabric was bought locally. Can you guess what movie my swap partner loves? I would love to show you the whole quilt, but that will have to wait until this mini-quilt makes it to its new owner!
