Design Wall Monday #2

On the design wall today is my finished quilt top for the New Year's Day Mystery over at Planet Patchwork. I went to their website to get the link for the pattern to post it for you, but it may have already been removed...I couldn't find it!
I used up lots of my favorite Dr. Seuss fabrics and love it so much I am planning to keep this quilt for myself! Did you see one of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes that I have posted on the bottom of my blog??
“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!” 
That's my inspiration quote for this year, so it's perfect that my 2012 New Year's Day mystery quilt was made from Dr. Seuss fabrics!
