Pink and purple explosion

It's been pedal to the metal here for the last month constructing Amelia's King Single bed quilt so to catch up...

...the custom made apron was a big hit with little Amelia

and then there was an explosion of pink and purple as well as some textured coloured fabrics for the caterpillar, as I collected fabrics for her King Single quilt.

The main fabric for the front and back was a pale pink homespun from Lincraft (bottom of the left pile). The right pile of various quilting weight cotton fabrics made up the hearts, butterflies, flowers and vine leaves that were appliqued on (sourced from Fabric Shack, eQuilter and my own stash). The textured caterpillar was made of (left pile, from top to bottom) gold metal trim on a yellow marble cotton print, orange gathered organza trim on orange homespun, lilac crystal organza with a pink poplin base, royal purple long-haired chiffon with a purple homespun base (not shown), spotted emerald green tulle with a green homespun base, pink soft tulle with hot pink sequins on a hot pink homespun base, and blue crushed velvet (all from Spotlight or Lincraft).
