Hungry Caterpillar Rag Quilt

A while back my friend asked me to make a food quilt.  The fabrics had to focus on
 food since she worked in a food related business.  I looked around and food lots of foodie fabrics but they were so varied and different that I didn't know how I would tie them all together.  Then I remembered the Eric Carle Hungry Caterpillar collection of fabrics.  It was covered with all kinds of food in a lovely rainbow palette so it would be perfect to use in the quilt.  I threw in some coordinating dimpled minky on the front and backed it with green flannel.  I think it turned out so cute.  What do you think?

I plan to make another.  Maybe I will add red and orange minky next time...

A Week Off

I am a teacher but not a full time regular teacher.  I am a reading and math specialist so when the regular teachers scheduled conferences last week, I got the week off.  My custom quilt order list is already growing so I wanted to dig into that.  I set a goal for myself of sewing 5 of those custom quilts and I'm happy to say I met the goal.  Here are the quilts I made from Oct. 13th - Oct. 20th
