I should guest post more often, but Molly might tell me to just get my own blog!

I just finished a quilt for my sister, Samantha.  The family has always called her Sam or Sammy (or Sambrino or Sam Hill, as in “Who in the Sam Hill is that?”).  When I spied Dr. Seuss “Sam I Am” (from the Green Eggs and Ham story) fabric a couple years ago in Grand Island NE (at Material Girl), I had to get it!  I only bought one yard of each – orange big white dots, green with green dots, white with black Sam I Am words, green with green Sam I Am words.  I added in plain white and came up with a plan.

The backing is a very cool border, found it on sale in an awesome small shop in Lincoln NE, Crafthouse in the north part of town.

And the happy recipient!  Some quilty details: Finished size ~70″ x 82″.  Batting – 80 cotton/20 polyester. Machine pieced and quilted by me.  Rectangular block.  Lots of fun to make!

Until next time I guest blog – ta ta for now — Bia
