OH MY GOSH!!!! I couldn’t love this more! I got a bunch of this for my sister-in-law’s ‘some day’ firstborn because she is such a Seuss fan. Now I know what I’ll do with it! Thanks for the incredible inspiration!!

This is wonderful. I’ve never seen a quilt like this and the little surprise under the flags are perfect. Any child would love finding the surprises. I think I’ll need to find more Seuss fabric & add this to my list of things to make. I know my 3yr old would love it. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

Oh my goodness, this is adorable! My daughter just got her first teaching job as a Kindergarden teacher and I cannot wait to make this for her classroom in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday next year!! I have some Dr. Seuss fabric in my stash hoping I have what I need for this or else that I can find it!! Awesome job!
