Can I get a Whoop, Whoop?

Can I get a Whoop Whoop for a Lorax finish?
Yall, I love, love the Lorax! Have you seen the movie or read the Dr. Seuss book? I know I am not a child anymore but this character is just so stinkin' cute! LOOK at those whiskers!!!!!


This one is in the earth tone colorway. ( My favorite!)  It measures 36x46. A great size to use in either the crib or as a throw or a pallet for nap time!

My customer requested the allover windows for the backing.
 I was a little nervous about using this print when I first got it because it was so warped! I took the steam iron to it and got most of the warping out. Then I had sewing machine trouble but a friend came to the rescue and quilted it for me in an allover meandering pattern. I love the texture that it gave to the quilt and she did a GREAT job! Thank you Chris!
I just adore this Aurifil Color # 2000 Light Sand. it was a beautiful choice to use with all these rich earthy colors. 

I chose the green Truffla trees for the binding. I am so excited for my customer to receive her quilt. They are expecting a baby boy this summer! Now to go make a pillowcase to slip the quilt into for gifting and I will be all ready to pop it into the mail! Woohoo! Yay for a finish!
