Earlier this year when we found out she was pregnant, my sister @janinemehrtens suggested that we make her a wall hanging for the baby's room. I agreed to the plan as long as I was told what I was doing.
So my sister who lives in Australia designed our pattern, to the theme of the children's classic picture book - A Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. She made half the blocks, including the fabulous caterpillar, fruit (check out the detailing on those strawberries and oranges) and cherry pie and then sent them to me with background felt ( which is a very pale blue, so I could make mine, and backing fabric and binding to finish it off.
Thankfully they were very quick and easy blocks to do. After assembling them and stressing somewhat over quilting felt, I opted for a very narrow quilting line somewhat close to the seams,
It was backed and bound in a coordinating print from from Andover Fabrics Hungry Caterpillar collection.
It has now been posted off to my cousin, along with a piece of dowling cut to fit, so it was ready to hang and a copy of the book for many future story times.
