The Lorax Revisited

I had left the Lorax hanging in my quilt studio on the design wall.  I guess I was still not totally happy with the way it was looking.  I would go in there and move something around and gaze at it semi-critically.

Today I decided I needed to even up the sashing strips.  So I spent the afternoon ripping out the middle parts of both rows.  I had to even it up.  Then another strip of blue and white poofy things found a home. 

I do like it better.  I am having a hard time dealing with the fact that the blocks are so tall compared to the width of it all.  And the next set are even taller by an inch!

I began to draw up some sketches for the next set of blocks.  I want to do a random set with some other blocks tossed in to make it interesting.  And I have to figure out how to "boy" it up.

I think they have chosen the name Atticus.  I am hearing a lot of unusual names in the recent years.  I guess Brittany, Tiffany and Aiden are getting too common  now-a-days!

I like it better so far.  But maybe it needs a blue puffy thing border all the way around just before the black stop border..........


  1. I, too, speak for the trees. Love The Lorax and the pouffy print. Truffulas from the truffula trees?

  2. It does look better with the added sashing.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
