As it happened, I needed a zip on the same day that I spoke to Lily about the quilt. I walked into my local quilt/sewing shop and lo and behold, they had Dr Seuss fabric on sale. For $6 a metre. And it was 240cm (94") wide. You know it. I bought some. And then Dr Seuss fabric just seemed to come to me.
So I made a Dr Seuss quilt!

As it turned out, when Lily gave the quilt to her teacher she told us that she is pregnant with her first child. So, I hope that this quilt sees lots of dribbles, rolling around, bottom noises, milk vomits and cuddly moments!
