Really, they are for "trouble-maker Two and Trouble-maker three" rather than "thing one and thing two". I began sewing these quilts back in January. I finished the tops within a couple weeks, but wanted to get more practice with machine quilting before I attempted it with these. I finally got around to finishing them in June. Fast forward to now, I finally got around to photographing / blogging about them. My boy / girl twins are now just over a year old. I decorated their room with a Dr. Seuss theme (another project that I just haven't gotten around to photographing - that is the kind of thing I do while they are napping, so I just haven't had the opportunity yet).
I didn't want the quilts to be different, so I mixed up the fabric placement. I found the pattern in the ModaBakeShop. It was designed by Amanda Jean of Crazymomquilts. When I saw the design with the funky blocks, I knew it was the one for my Dr. Seuss fabric.
Fabric is Celebrate Seuss by Robert Kaufman. A few months before this came out (fall 2010), I had spent hours searching for Dr. Seuss fabric. The only thing I could find was small bits of vintage fabric that was out of my price range. I was so excited when I discovered this new line by Kaufman.
