Dr Seuss Picnic Blanket


I made this for my grandkids ; do I have a picture of THEM with it -- NO !!!
They have used it on inside picnics and to play on ,
but it has not made it on an OUTSIDE picnic, since my daughter
thinks it's "TOO NICE" to put on the ground . I told her there is always next year and
that is what I  made it for !  ( I still have not returned it to them ..... yet ............. the
bright colors make me HAPPY! )  My grandson has used it as a bed quilt , so it's getting
used and loved on !!
The pattern is from AMY ELLIS's book , Modern Basics ; Posi Patch . I changed the layout
a little and left the applique off . This was the 1st quilt that I hand sewed the binding on . I did not
enjoy this process ; it frustrated me ! and I feel it's not as secure as machine stitching both sides .
So to save me time and further frustrations , I will be machine stitching bindings !!! Also , I;m not
a fan of hand stitching much of anything .................... I like to get done quicker !!

there are some more pictures of it on FLICKR

I'm not into blogging and not that good at it yet !
Thanks Amy for another blogging festival !!!!
