Earlier this year I was asked by a friend to quilt her VHC quilt that she had made for her young daughter.  The fabric in the VHC range is bright and cheerful and makes a wonderful I Spy type of quilt.  Where’s the chocolate cake?

I had a search and found the pantograph pattern be Anne Bright called Hungry Hungry.  This pattern has many of the food elements from the story and I was able to enlarge it to be a suitable size for the single bed size quilt that Linden made. You can find the pattern here; Hungry, Hungry b2b

We decided on an apple green coloured thread which shows up lovely on the white background but does not create too much contrast on the coloured areas.

Linden used the dots from the fabric range for the backing, perfect.
