Babybook: Hungry Caterpillar

So, for christmas I gave one very special baby the promise to finish his book about the very hungry caterpillar soon. 
There are all kinds of colors and textures (woven, knitted wool, flannel, plush fabric, quilting fabric, seersucker, and the caterpillar at one of the last pages has been stuffed with batting to show that it really has eaten a lot) and there is even a rattle and some pages are crackling because I lined them with oven bags. Since I finally finished it and gifted it to him, I can also share pictures:

Have you ever sewn a baby book?

Q 2 FAL List

Well, the optimism from January has changed to well mannered realism. 
I was planning on finishing all my projects in the first three months of the year but it seems I not only didn't pull that off but also managed to gain a few extra projects.

Let's start with the new projects:
  • finishing the baby book (the very hungry caterpilar - I love the book and I needed to make a baby version) I started and finally gift it 

 I did make a bit of progress on some of my projects:
  • the hexie quilt finally has a backing but it still needs quilting
  • the log cabin quilt also has a backing but also needs quilting
  • my christmas quilt was made into blocks and then... well it needs anything else. Because there were wonderful suggestions in the last post (thank you!) I still haven't decided which route to go
  • I began quilting the Flea Market Fancy quilt but haven't finished yet
  • my Double Wedding Quilt still isn't even pieced into blocks yet
