So, here's the story I have chosen. It's fun and bright and genderless. Perfect.
Several months ago I sketched this as the concept for the quilt. Very informal, could've on a cocktail napkin!
Here's a few of the panels. None are really finished, but they are coming along well.There's nice bright sun with most of a caterpillar appliqued onto it. Hungry Caterpillar won't be too hungry until I add his head! The sun has these satiny reys that will be knotted when it is finished. I have tried to add several tactile items. Upper right is the coccoon. It's fleece, and has a little stuffing in it.
The Hungry Caterpillar ate one green leaf... He's embroidered in this scene.
Hungry caterpillar hasn't got his eyes and antennae yet, but he is big and fat! A great variagated green fleece, with looped satin ribbon. Love the lollypop material that I'm using as the border.
I have yet to start on the butterfly that will be on the central part of the quilt. It again will have tactile items, like nubbly antennae, pieces of it's wings that move/crinkle, etc, and lots of color. Here's a sneak peek at the fabrics going on the back. Anybody know where I can get cheese, pickle or sausage fabric???
