Very Hungry Caterpillar

I have been wanting to make a quilt for Johns Hopkins Children’s Center for a while.  I got an e-mail from someone that knew of my involvement with them.  In the May issue of Love of Quilting was a Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt pattern.  They had a kit, but it was already sold out.  You could still order, but they did not know when they would be ready.  I started googling and made myself crazy, so I put it in the back of my mind for a while.  Yesterday, it leaped forward again so I started googling again.  After three hours and three headaches, I said the hell with it.  I wanted to go to one site and get everything.  Is that so much to ask?  Evidently it is.  So I went back to LOQ and ordered their kit, but I bought a different backing from some other place.  What can I say?  It was different.  I liked it.

I measured my quilt top this morning.  One side is off 1/2 an inch and that’s it.  I was so happy.  I assumed there would be inches of difference.  I won’t have to worry about the border now.  No. Wait a minute.  I still have to decide on what fabric to use.  Jeez. orange crushborder  I have several possibilities, but I only need two.

    My grandsons love the Very Hungry Caterpillar. I have had to read that story many, many times. Ben used to call the sun “Pop” because “Pop! the sun came out.” It will make a very cute quilt and the kids will love it.
