Baby Hungary caterpillar quilt

baby Hungary Caterpillar quilt

I finished the baby Hungary Caterpillar quilt this week!  This is a quilt that came together so quickly, then sat and sat and sat, waiting for that last little bit of stitching to finish it.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who does that ;)

A shot of the back - I love this stripe print that shows all the foods the caterpillar ate in the book :)

If I ever get a quilt completed, from start to finish, in the same week, I'm totally amazed with myself! I think setting things aside must be a genetic flaw in quilters, lol! Your little quilt is awfully cute.

Of course you are not the only one quilters are renowned for their talent at procrastination :)

It is a charming quilt that will be much cuddled I am sure.

Very cute. And of course you wouldn't be a quilter if you didn't procrastinate sometime. I am the world's worse.

What a cute quilt for a community sewing project!! Uh. . . and, NO - you are not the only one who does that (lets thing sit forever when there's just a bit left to do. . . )

Kate said...

Very cute! Hmm, maybe I need to find my Hungry Caterpillar...no, no, stop! No new projects!

Anyway, yes. I let things sit at the almost finished stage all too often. Usually I can bind it off after quilting it - my sore spot is quilting it.

Cute! These fabrics are so much fun, and I love pinwheels! :)

Cute quilt. I like the orange fabric a lot.

Yeah, I just finished a quilt that took several weeks to get the final stitches in! It felt a bit like running in a pool--why was this/I moving so slowly!

I love that book. How fun to have a quilt version of it! It will be a welcome gift to a sick child.

Katie @SwimBikeQuilt said...

I definitely do the same thing!!! I finished a 100 Quilts quilt this weekend that has just needed binding for... 6 months. Sigh. Thanks for linking up to 100 Quilts and Happy Quilting!
