Critter Crazy

Still plugging away at the Pinwheel Party quilt but today I had to tackle the pile of fabric waiting to be added to the store.

I think I've gone a little crazy on woodland creatures the last month or so, but I love them all.

My favorite is Wee Woodland by Keiki for Moda. I can't wait to make something with this fabric.  It's fall-ish but not overly so. I think it'll work anywhere. (the little gift wrapped tortoise kills me. C-u-t-e!)

In the end I ordered some Life's a Hoot fabric from Adornit. I didn't order the large owls.  I agree, they were a little coloring book-ish like some of you had mentioned.  The little ones are really cute though.  And the fabric quality is great.
There are two colorways (green and pink), each with owls, a stripe, and a dot.

To cap it off "What a Hoot!" arrived from Classic Cottons.  I had ordered this child-like fabric months and months ago and didn't have a clue what was in the box at the front door.

Back to the Pinwheel Party...

Pin It!

Owls and whimsy nature seem to be so popular this year in fabric collections! They are all so fun and colorful!

I saw these first-hand at my LQS and oh, my! They are so adorable! Now that I know my sister's expecting a boy, I can be a little more liberal/specific with my choices... :-)

Ooo... I love those Wee Woodland prints too! Very cute. I wish I'd seen them before I placed my order this morning!

As one who has been collecting owls for over 30 years, I really love your fabrics.

I'm so in love with all of the owl fabric! But I think I am going to make some matching dresses for my girls instead of quilting with it. It will be perfect for fall!
