Project Hungry Caterpillar

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.

Cut up fabrics for Project Hungry Caterpillar – ready to be pieced!

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
