What was your inspiration?
One of my best friends is having a boy and I couldn't pass up making a cute baby quilt from the Cat in the Hat line by Robert Kaufman! Thing 1 and Thing 2 are just crazy and cute and thought it would make the perfect quilt for her second child. (She'd now have a little Thing 1 and Thing 2 running around the house!!)
I also love quilts with simple color combinations and thought this would be simple and fun in just a few colors. The Cat in the Hat line made it easy to put an assortment of great colors together to do just that.
What are you most proud of?
I love machine applique and needed something simple and quick to complete in a short amount of time. I think the scrappy blocks are really easy to randomly throw together and the appliques of Thing 1 and Thing 2's little patches give it an extra cute touch! Overall, this quilt was quick to make and a lot of fun!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take it one step at at time. I design my patterns to be easy for even a beginner to understand because...well, because I was a beginner once. I know what I want to see in a pattern and that's clear and simple instructions, lots of diagrams, and author notes if something was a little more complex to understand.
Also, I'd give someone starting this project the advice to ask questions. I've provided a lot of resources to reach out and ask questions if they are confused or need help at any point in the process. Hope you all enjoy!
