The Very Hungry Caterpillar

In our house we LOVE to read the book called The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  It is a favorite among my girls.  My mother who is a very talented quilter made for both of the girls a hungry caterpillar quillow.  How cute is that word...quillow?  For those of you who don't know a quillow is a quilt that turns into a pillow.  Adorable.  I've posted here a few pics of one of the quillows that my mother so graciously made for her granddaughters.

This certainly makes reading time that much more fun and cozy when you add a quilt and a caterpillar plush toy to the mix!
 This is the back of the quillow. Aren't the colors just gorgeous? 
They are so vibrant, and I love the leaf.

Seriously, that word is just too cute.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and
It is such a great and classic story and the quillows
just made reading time that much more special. 
Thanks Grandma! :-)
