Caterpillar top finished

Because I finished quilting on another top last night, I have had a bit of a lazy day today. Just pottering and tidying in the sewing room, and then I cut and added the final borders to the hungry caterpillar top.

This is how it'll remain until I have the chance to quilt it, and that's not on my immediate horizon.

I have about an hour until I need to collect the small people from school, so it's my plan to cut and piece the back for my 'dogtooth violet - or purple stars' quilt. If I can get that all pinned by the time I go to bed tonite, then I'll be a happy camper :-)

I love this quilt, brings back memories of reading his books to my girls...
my package arrived, thank you so much I am going to have fun with those blocks. I decided a few are going to be pin cushions! and some will be label blocks for the back of my quilts..
the rest will have a home some day too!

I love the Huntry Caterpillar. I used the book a lot when I was teaching English to the primary school kids at Alex's last a few years ago. They loved it too.

The border fabric is lovely.

The Hungry caterpillar shouldn't be hungry any more! He has such a yummy border! It looks really cute. I can't wait to see how you will quilt it.

It came out so cute......
I have two to for my new grandchild and one for my daughter in case she ever has a child ...I'm afraid this fabric
won't be available when I want it later.
Happy sewing,

Oh and it is the 40th anniversary of the Hungry Caterpillar being published! My favorite nephew Lt. Col. J.M. Chambers is 42 today and this use to be his favorite book I would read to him!
Happy Sewing,

I love this!! A friend has bought me some of this fabric, I'm going to be picking it up when we visit Australia in June.

Your quilt looks great.

Busy, busy girl! You are the first person I know who has worn out the motor to her machine. DH can't say you don't get your money's worth out of them! LOL. The Christmas tree skirt is quite cute but I just finished putting winter away so it's wayyyy too soon to think about santa again yet.
