Lorax Quilt

Can't believe I haven't posted anything since December. In January I got a Statler Stitcher long arm machine and my mom came to visit and I have been pretty busy. I have done some things but nothing special until now. I bought some Dr. Seuss Lorax fabric online and planned on using one of the panels to make myself a quilt to hang in my cubicle. Did that. Loved it. Decided I needed a few of them. Made 3 more. Decided it would be best to put them all together in a quilt. Done with that now. But ... I have to find a quilting pattern. Looking for Truffula Trees or Thneeds. If you've never read the book, I highly recommend it. Dr. Seuss was an environmentalist before green was fashionable. He also understood consumerism before that even became a word. The man was a genius and now they've made his book -- The Lorax -- into a movie. It opens March 3. My goal was to finish the quilt before then. Not sure I'm going to make it, but I'll give it my best shot.
