Very Hungry Caterpillar Storybook Quilt

Storybook quilt I made for my boys based on Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar
a tiny and very hungry caterpillar started to look for some food Monday 1 apple
Tuesday 2 pears
Wednesday 3 plums
Thursday 4 strawberries
Friday 5 oranges

Saturday: chocolate cake, ice-cream cone, pickle, swiss cheese, salami, lolliipop, cherry pie, sausage, cupcake, watermelon ~ he had a stomachachenow he wasn't hungry - or little any more - he was a big, fat caterpillarhe built a small house - he stayed inside for two weeks, he nibble a hole, pushed his way out and...
he was a beautiful butterfly
Pieced together back......

I love this quilt. I saw a sample of the material yesterday and wanted. I don't know if I want to make a quilt or clothing. I teach first grade and I think the kids would love it.
