    The Grinch Is Now in Whoville

    My Grinch quilt is finally finished. Yay me! I started collecting fabrics for this quilt in early 2014. Later that year Sandy N, Cyndi(ofthevortex) & Momgram (Anita) sent me more wonderful Grinch fabrics. I bought additional fabrics to "make sure I had enough". I started planning the layout in January 2015....trying to decide how I wanted to put it together. I decided on pieces in 3" increments. All of the pieces I cut were 3" square, 6" square, 6x3, 9x3, 9x6 & 9x9 except for the panel pieces. These pieces were then arranged in random layout for 12" blocks. The quilt has thirty 12" blocks and over 200 pieces on the front. The blocks with panel pieces were a headache because they were weird sizes......so I did "creative" piecing on those. It's been fun to work on even though the FMQ nearly made me crazy. I broke a whole pack of needles.

    Thanks so much to Sandy, Cyndi & Anita for the awesome fabrics given to me. I love my quilt and knowing you'll were part of it makes it even more special. My quilt makes me smile. It looks like Christmas exploded!

    I was hoping to take pictures outside but it has been raining a lot. Hope you like it. Merry Christmas!

          It is a great looking quilt - and a wonderful story. I like your FMQ.

            I absolutely LOVE your quilt. The Grinch (the original) is my favorite holiday show.

                Your Grinch quilt is absolutely darling! So creative in planning how to put it together! I know what you mean about the panel pieces. It took me years to figure out how to use the fabrics, and I did something similar to what you did to put it together. It's a family favorite at our house!

                    That is an awesome quilt! I love the Grinch. Even the Jim Carrey version, which all the traditionalists in my family think is sacrilegious. (It's funny!!)

                    I bought one of the Grinch fat quarter bundles about 2 (maybe 3 ) years ago and it's one of those where I just can't bring myself to do anything with it because I'm afraid to mess it up! lol Maybe this will inspire me to just plan some and go for it. Next Christmas.

                      Thanks for sharing the pictures. Gee, it turned out fantastic. I did see in a post the other day where you said you were snuggled under your Grinch quilt. You did GREAT!! (Hope no one tries to steal it!!)

                          You did a great job! I have been rounding up and saving fabrics since I saw Jean's Grinch quilt. I have a bunch of them, and a couple of panels, plus I have coordinating fabrics to use with them. Maybe next summer I will start laying them out and getting a start on it.

                          This year I will have to be content with my "Grinch" style door garland. LOL.

                            When I read the title of your post, I thought it was going to be about someone being grumpy to you! So glad it wasn't! Such a cool quilt. I've saved it and hope to snag some Grinch fabric to try something similar. I really like it.
