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!
