I have just finished this quilt for our younger granddaughter. Because it can be folded into a cushion cover stitched into the quilt, it is more correctly called a Quillo. These are great favourites with children as they can easily be taken on car trips, for napping on the journey, or carting to the beach etc.
The fabric I bought came in a set of three panels, (caterpillar, leaf and butterfly), I bought two sets because I wanted to make a cushion cover on the back, the strips with all of the foods the caterpillar ate his way through, and the very cheerful dotty fabric I used as backing and in various pieced sections on the quilt front.

The book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ was written in 1969 by Eric Carle and has been a favourite ever since. More information on Eric Carle and many other topics for young children can be found at www.therainbowandsunshineplace.blogspot.com/
