The Very Hungry Caterpillar at Fat Quarter Shop

The 40th anniversary of the beloved and world-renown children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, just passed, and for the first time Fat Quarter Shop is happy to revel in that caterpillar-y goodness. Andover Fabrics has reproduced Carle’s fun and colorful illustrations in numbers, dots, paint squiggles, and of course caterpillars and a beautiful panel of the caterpillar and butterfly.

To go along with the collection, Andover’s offered a free pattern! It’s the perfect bedtime-story companion quilt! Just click on the quilt image to the left or right here for the pattern, print it out, and get going!

Mmm, and can you see little bootie slippers, toys, or pillowcases made up in this? Cute cute! And pajamas!!

But I digress…

Happy Friday, and enjoy the weekend!


  1. I LOVE this!!! I just decided a few months ago to do a “Very Hungry Caterpillar” theme for our nursery, but was struggling to find fabric that I liked–needless to say, this is perfect!
