The Very Hungry Caterpillar in a quilt block!! Absolutely a WONDERFUL idea for a children's quilt! I REALLY like this.
VicMansfield answered:
We read that book regularly in this house, so it did influence me! :) As soon as I read your comment I actually saw for the first time an entire quilt of blocks of hexagon creatures - that would be fun! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
