Hungry Caterpillar Quilt completion!

The Hungry Caterpillar Wall hanging

The completed Wall hanging!

December 22-24, 2012

I have a commitment to complete things and have some fun with projects.  I went on a 2.5 week vacation from work.  A much needed vacation.  Of course, I spent 2-3 days relaxing and taking an easy, but by the 2nd day, I was starting to get bored.  I spent 2 days cleaning up my sewing room up and I realized that I've committed to a lot of projects, but I would never finish them.  So, the first project I focused on was the "Hungry Caterpillar" wall hanging.  I spent a long time trying to finish quilting it.  It was a challenge to decide how to quilt since I'm still a novice.  But I did it!  It took me a day to finish quilting it.  Then the next day, I focused on getting that binding on which went fast by sewing machine.  I had to finish it by hand and the miracle is... I finished the hand stitching at 10 pm on Christmas Eve.  I thought, "Why not give it to my 15 month old son for Christmas?"  In a box and under the tree it went! the next morning, my son stared at it and smiled and hugged it.  It was a better reaction than I could ever have expected especially from a 15 month old.  I'm so proud that I finished this project and it will be displayed in my son's room!  On to the next project!!!

Time to hand stitch to completion!
Sewing the binding on! Getting close!
