The Very Hungry Caterpillar Quilt

I bought this fabric bundle some time ago, and I’ve made another quilt using the Caterpillar fabric line.  I loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar book, and I think this fabric is awesome and so much fun.  I made a tumbler quilt before and I thought it was a good pattern for showing off all the different fabrics, so it seemed like a great option for this quilt.

Here is the set of fabrics:

I had a template for my tumblers still around from the previous quilt, so I was able to use it again to do my cutting.  I used a ruler on top of the template to make sure I didn’t cut through the plastic.

After a bunch of cutting, I had a big pile of tumblers.

I randomized all the different fabrics as I pieced them together to get a nice, overall effect.  The top went together pretty quickly.

From there it was on to quilting.  I wanted to use this quilt as another opportunity to practice with my Prostitcher, so I scrolled through the design options to find something that would fit.  I found this really cool butterflies and loops pattern that I thought would fit well with the caterpillar theme, and I choose a really pretty light purple thread for the quilting.

Here it is in progress:

and the full quilt after finishing the quilting:

I had some left over red print which I used for the binding.  Here it is all finished:

A close up of the back – cool butterflies and loops!

Maggie decided to help with the photo shoot:

i think it came out really well, and I enjoyed the opportunity to do some more practice with the Prostitcher.  This will be a gift for a friend who is expecting in July, and I really hope she’ll love it!
