Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt - Finished and delivered

Terrrible oversight on my part: I neglected to share the finished "Very Hungry Caterpillar" quilt. This has been such a pleasure to work on it, not only because it has been a labor of love and a needed distraction while I was not feeling well but also because Bug and I adore the story, the images and I love colors, bright, bold colors. This was the perfect project for me You can see the earlier stages of the quilt here and here.
I finished it just in time to deliver it myself to my then very pregnant cousin Sophie in Provence


Bright and cheerful, it will keep her sweet child warm and cuddly.


I bound the quilt with a very plain white fabric with aqua polka dots and kept the quilting very simple 


Just in the ditch and some cross lines around the edges





And of course the outline of the butterfly and the caterpillar


Sophie liked it a lot! 
That day she also received the  translation of Eric Carle's adorable book so she could tell the story to her baby.


Barely 2 weeks later,  Sophie, her husband and the whole family welcomed sweet Chloé to the world


Unfortunately after we returned home. I will have to wait until our next trip to hold little Chloé. In the meantime, the quilt I made for her will have to make do.

  5. So pretty. I love all the colors. And butterflies are about the favorite for me when it comes to flying insects.

    Baby is so adorable. Sorry you were not there to hold her.
