The Very Hungry Caterpillar and a Very Happy Boy!

Here are a few pictures of a quilt I made for my son, the very happy little boy! I had the good fortune of attending a quilt retreat in October 2008 so he wasn't able to see me making his quilt. The retreat was hosted by the owner of Adel Quilting & Dry Goods.

The fabric I used for the quilt top is from Andover's The Very Hungry Caterpillar line. The pattern I used is called Bits n Pieces from a Colorado-based company, Mountainpeek Creations (
Jenni "worked her magic" and long armed a leaf design* to go with the theme of the Eric Carle book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I'm thrilled with the results!

That same weekend, my sister Jenni and I also worked on a body pillow using a fabric panel. Jenni had the fabric quilted and ready to go when I arrived at her house. We just had to trim the panel to fit the pillow and add the backing fabric for a pillow case! It turned out really cute! It was a great way to use a fabric panel.

Now, my little guy has a fun quilt set to use on movie night!
Thanks Jenni for all of your hard work on this set! He loves it!

*Contact Jenni for more information and pricing on this particular long arm design.
