Dr Suess


A few months ago we found on sale some Dr Seuss material.  I grabbed a bunch of it and threw together this quilt.  One thing I realized after piecing the top was that this quilt is WAY TOO BUSY.  I think it might drive a baby crazy looking at it.  I know it does me.  So what do we do? Yes we make the back too busy too.


I am not saying I don't like the quilt.  I just think I well blundered.  I lucky have tons of material left over so I can do a better try 2.  My next quilt will have solids mixed in  with the Dr Seuss prints so that your brain can register what I made.


Have you ever finished a quilt out of material that you love and then pondered the mistakes you made making it?  Well that is where I am with this quilt.  I love it, but then again I don't.

That post had some interesting insight into color and pattern. I don't think I've actually thought about it, but I always mix - maybe because too much visual confusion hurts my head. =) Thanks for the thinking! I do like the quilt, though.

I have definitely finished a quilt and wished I had done it differently. I bet your next attempt will be perfect.
