The Very Hungry Caterpillar Quilt

I have really enjoyed sewing this.. I am getting better each time I attempt a new quilt. My quarter inch seams are more accurate, and although you can't see very well I have sewn a top stitch in a zig zag pattern on the colourful part.
I planned how I was going to set out the strips and the caterpillars myself. So you could say its my own design!

And I have even sewn a label on to it. I am delighted with it..

So I hope my DH's grand daughter will like it too. It's for her first birthday, where has that year gone??
I think I have the quilting bug, its very rewarding and this is the first quilt I have made to give away!

Happy Days for what ever you're doing.
