So is anyone else in love with Amy Schimler’s new line of fabric, Jungle Creatures? I absolutely love it! The colors are vibrant and her designs are just too fun. I seem to love every line she does – I think it’s because her colors are great and her animal designs are always super cute. I can’t get enough of her stuff!
Right now I am working on a quilt top using her Jungle Creatures line. My work-in-progress quilt top looks really busy, but I like it anyway. I need to make about 18 more blocks and then I’ll figure out what comes next. Probably something in black and white to keep all that color contained 🙂 and then more crazy colorful stuff as the outside border. The block pattern I am using is inspired by a post I saw on someone else’s site last week. I remember she called her quilt Man at Work, but rats – I can’t remember the name of her site. Anyway, I thought she had such a neat pattern so I thought I’d try it out with this fabric. Thank you person with the cool quilt – I should have written down your website address!
Here’s a picture with my little Kevin. This is before he plucked my work-in-progress off the chair and ran around the house with it like a wild little beast 🙂 He was so pleased with himself!
And then I played with a super fun tutorial that Kathy from http://kwiltypleasures.blogspot.com/p/tutorials.html Her tutorial is called “Fabric Journal Cover” and it was really easy to follow. So now my quilting journal has this super fun cover…of course using my new Jungle Creatures fabric! Did I mention how much I love this fabric line? 🙂
Just linked up with Lee at Work in Progress Wednesday at http://www.freshlypieced.com/?wref=bif and Kelly at Needle and Thread Thursdays at http://www.myquiltinfatuation.blogspot.com/ I really need to figure out how to add those buttons to my sidebar! Heavens to Betsy!

I LOVE that monkey fabric! It’s so bright & cheerful! Would make a wonderful kid’s quilt… 🙂 Great job on the quilt top so far too. And that cheeky Kevin?! Give him a pat from Switzerland. 🙂
I LOVE that monkey fabric! It’s adorable & would make the perfect kiddie quilt. As for Kevin, he’s pretty cute too. Give him a hug from Switzerland! 🙂
Hi Elita – I’ve been enjoying your website. Your All Framed Up Quilt in the pinks turned out beautifully. I love those fabrics!
I love all the fabric!
Hi Diana – so not only are the colors and patterns super fun but the weight/feel of the fabric is really nice too. Yep – I’m a fan 🙂
I am having s much fun with this line! I wish it would come in a minky-type fabric as well!
Great fabric and such wonderful colours!!
I just love how bright the colors are. I almost embarrassed to confess that I have bought 3-4 yards of each of these fabrics! Tee-hee!
love the cheery fabrics, and I love the wonkiness mixed into the quilt.
Thanks for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
by the way- a text link is perfectly okay, but if you want to add the button here’s how- just copy the code from the box below the button on my page, then go into the layout tab in blogger. click on “Add a Gadget,” select html, and past it in. voila!

Hi Kelly – I am going to try the button thing this weekend 🙂 I may have to draft my tech savvy daughter into service!
Also, your carousel quilt is gorgeous! The colors are stunning and the block is very fun. I have not seen that block before – it’s a winner!
Adorable! The quilt and the journal cover
Thanks 🙂 Looking forward to sewing some more Jungle Creature blocks today! Love that fabric!!
