The next week, I went in and bought enough to make a lap quilt using a very basic patchwork pattern called Yellow Brick Road. My mom made a small quilt from this pattern, and I loved how big the squares were and thought it would be perfect to show off the bright colours of the Dr Seuss fabrics.

These are the fabrics that are in the blocks.
This will be the border.
This will be the back. The idea is to make it reversible.
When I bought my fabric, the sales lady asked me, "Do you have kids?" I said, "Not yet, but this is my kinda fabric anyways!" I love bright primary colours, and have always loved Dr Seuss books. I'm going to enjoy this quilt so much, and when the time comes that I have a little one, it will be the perfect size for a toddler bed.
I can't wait to lay all my squares out on my bed and get them all put together!
