Like most of my sewing/crafting/blogging friends, I am inspired by and addicted to Pinterest! When my daughter mentioned that she needed a baby shower gift for a dear college friend, I was glad that I had pinned this tutorial to my "Quilts" board.
My daughter was already planning to gift the new arrival with a book or two, and we both agreed that this matching circle quilt/playmat would be a great shower gift.
Fabric.com has a large selection of Dr. Suess fabrics, and I ordered 1/2 yard cuts of 5 different designs, adding to that some polka dot fabric from my stash. Note: due to the length of the
10 degree wedge ruler, fat quarters won't be big enough.
In order to accommodate the 50" circumference, I pieced the back with 4 large wedge shapes using the red/white & black/white polka dot fabrics. Yippee...reversible!
The quilt was sandwiched with a cotton/poly batting, and quilted in the ditch at each of the 36 wedges and around the center circle, which was sewn on with machine applique. I bound the quilt with a bias binding to finish it off.
What a fun project! There are so many adorable quilting fabrics available these days, and I'm sure I will make this again. :-)
