My Caterpillar fabric just arrived!

The brother's little baby quilt fabric has arrived!! I am so happy! The colors are beautiful and bright - perfect to grab the attention of a little one. I love giving primary colors to babies.

I need to finish a lot of my projects as soon as I can, so I can start working on this quilt. The baby is due in August, so I need to get it done by then. I am shooting for July.

So...I have found a problem with quilting. Getting fabric gives me this sense of excitement...with heart pounding joy and possibilities. I have to be careful because it is so addictive! Hehehe. I could turn in to one of those hoarders but with fabric.

So...I have cut off the fabric buying for six months. I have to use what I have first. I only have a line of quilt projects to do...finish quilting Vanilla'a pink and brown...finish quilting mom's....putting together and finishing dad's disappearing nine patch...then - pumpkin's quilt, sister's quilt, Chiquita's wedding quilt...etc...whew. Lol!

So, Baby is going to fit in there.  I think that the caterpillar quilt is going to get bumped way up on the list! I am in love with the fabric!

I am wondering if I should send the Caterpillar quilt out to be quilted by a long arm quilter. I am not confident that I could quilt it with the cool shapes that I want it to have. If you have had your quilt done that way, how was it? Is it expensive?

I hope that you are having a wonderful Saturday!


  1. That is so cute. I love all the colors!

  2. Thanks Stephanie! I love it! The butterfly is gorgeous! I'll try to get a picture up as soon as I start working on it.

  3. I have this fabric... I am thinking I would make wallhanging for it for my grandson bedroom. I also have a bunch of other READING RELATED FABRICS...
