The Hungry Caterpillar & Goodnight Moon - WIP

In addition to Curious George, my son also loves The Hungry Caterpillar and Good Night Moon (and Green Eggs and Ham, but that's another post...).  A situation to which I am sure many of you can relate, we have read these books countless times, over and over every day.  He was so excited to see the fabrics arrive, and I plan to make two simple quilts for us to snuggle under as we read and re-read these and other favorites on the sofa.  When we settle down to read books, the first thing he says is, "Mama, quilt!"

I ordered a panel and one yard of the food border fabric. As I only had a single yard of the border, I pieced together the fabric above and below the panel, matching up the plums and pie as carefully as I could.

For Good Night Moon, I added a few solid red, yellows and greens to a fat quarter bundle an cut 4.5" squares to assemble simple 12" 4x4 blocks. The center block is a single square of "patchwork" fabric.

I am linking up to WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.  Click over and take a look...


  1. Sweet! I love panels for kids and babies. Just ordered a zoo themed panel to start on next.

  2. So cute! May just have to order a couple of panels to create gift quilts!

  3. C'est magnifique!! I love your work! I have never done quilts but may have to start. Geaux, Jenny!!
