It’s being a looooong time since I started on a new quilting project, as I’ve been really bogged down with work and family commitment. So long that I felt really guilty about it and had this constant urge to sew again!
So here I am…..with my new project – Project Hungry Caterpillar. This quilt is specially dedicated to my daughter Eponine. She has loved “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” story by Eric Carle since she was a baby and still keeps the board book with her, though she’s already 10 this year. Therefore, when I saw this collection and kit from Andover Fabrics, I knew that I had to make it for her! This would be the most perfect gift for her, as a cherished childhood memory for many years to come.
This is gonna be my “biggest” project by far, a single quilt measuring 64″ x 92″! The two panel blocks measure 24″ x 24″ each. I’m not even sure how I could fit this huge quilt under my machine but I’ll figure it out somehow.
There are so many fabrics to cut it took me almost five nights in a row! I actually made a mistake cutting up one of the fabrics and realised it too late that there’s not enough!!! Arrrgggghhhhh….good grief fatquartershop.com still carries the fabrics, so I could at least purchase extra.

Looking forward to completing this new exciting project! I’m not sure how long it would take but I hope to be able to complete it by 2013 Christmas! LOL
