|Completed Lorax quilt|
I purchased the panels and a few of the prints without having a plan in mind. I knew I didn't really care for many of the kits and patterns on the market as I personally find them a bit too busy for my tastes. After mulling some ideas for a while, I sprung into action so I could finish the quilt as a second birthday present for him. Ultimately, I opted to keep it simple, in part so that I could finish in a timely manner, but also so I didn't have to purchase additional fabric. In the end, I cut the panels to size and framed them with coordinating fabrics in the line, arranging in three rows of three and framing with a scrappy narrow border.
He was certainly excited when he opened it on his birthday (see pictures below) and he insisted for a brief period on having it on his lap when we read to him, but he has by now largely lost interest in it. I hope that changes as the weather grows colder and as he grows a bit older!
