The Cat in the Hat Keeps Pins in Tins: Winners

Wow, you were all so clever with your entries in the Dr. Seuss fabric giveaway. I’ve had a hard time picking two winners. Plus, since the entry deadline passed, we’ve been working almost nonstop on 100 Blocks, Vol. 2. (That issue heads to the printer next week and is on sale Nov. 16.) Oh, and launching Quilmaker’s Treasure Hunt. And thinking about getting ready for Quilt Market. My days have been very full . . . Now back to Seuss.

The submissions were creative and clever–they were so fun they made me grin. But then, I had to pick two, just two, to receive fabric. So no more hemming and hawing, Shelly Womack and robin are each getting two yards of Cat in the Hat fabric from Robert Kaufman. Congratulations to them–their entries are repeated below. And thanks to all who entered. We’re going to have to do more giveaways that stretch your creativity!

Shelly Womack

I built a quilt for my friend Milt
With old shirts he gave away.
Once complete with plaids and prints
An unusual color way.

Milt said about the quilt I built
About the greens, the reds
And many blues,
“I like this quilt, I do, I do!
It matches my left shoes!”

Milt Looking at the quilt I built
Named every shirt he wore.
Where and when he bought them,
each and every store.

Milt took the quilt I built and said,
“ I like this thing you do –
This quilty quilt you built;
You made my old shirts new!


A quilter who quilts
Dr. Suess, it would seam,
Has unlimited help
She can quilt up her dream!

From Thing 1 and Thing 2
then to Hopping on Pop
Of course Fishes in teapots
Make awesome quilt tops!

Is there fabric of Whoville?
And Mulberry Street?
Of the Lorax, or Horton?
That would really be neat!

Oh the quilts I would quilt!
Oh the stitches I’d stitch!
Oh the blankets I’d build!
I’d stitch one of the Grinch!
I’m just ITCHING
to stitch up a quilt
of the GRINCH!

But alas! We shall see . . .
If I do get a stash
Of this Dr. Suess fabric
Without paying cash.

There are other poems, too!
And their authors quite clever.
I don’t know if I can
Make my rhymes sound much better.

All I can do is to sit, sit, sit, sit -
Think what pattern would be fun
To quilt Suess
If I won!
