2 piles-o-fabric

The very Hungry Caterpillar quilt fabric The Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric by Andover Fabrics based on the book by Eric Carle.

Cat fabric panel & rainbow quilt fabrics.
I am taking Judy's challenge (in her blog format, I can't figure out how to link to one post, sorry.)& will make this grouping into a log cabin quilt. This project has been a PIG (Project in Grocery sack) of mine for quite some time now, this is just the impetus to do it! It will be straight furrows in a rainbow arrangement, with the cats as the centers. The best part - this will be a stash quilt!

The fabric is fantastic! All of it, the VHC and the rainbows. I think it'll be a great log cabin quilt.

Wow, my colors! Love it!

I just bought the polka dots from the Very Hungry Caterpillar, but not the rest. I have plans to use it soon (always have plans!).

I have that kitty panel and haven't decided what to do with it yet. Think I'll wait and see what you come up with!

I love the caterpiller fabric. I bought some to make my grandson a pillowcase. Of course, then I had to go buy him the book to go with it.

I just bought a kit today to make a twin size quilt using the caterpillar panel as the center piece. I came right home and got it all cut out and hope to have the top done in a couple of days. The quilt shop didn't have all the cool coordinating fabrics though, the kit has similar, but not quite the same fabrics. I may have to make a second one and order the fabrics online!
