I much prefer the less 'intense' colors of this new line. And it seems grey is the new neutral...I like to pair it with orange for a blast of color. Perfect bundle!

Oh my goodness- how adorable and how PERFECT! When my middle daughter was younger (she'll be 30 this year!), she and her cousin were the biggest bug hunters EVER and they both vowed that when they grew up they would be "Bug Scientists" together.. :-) If I won this cute, cute fabric prize, I would have to make a quilt for *her* little girl-- who will most likely want to be a bug scientist someday too.. ! Thank you for the great giveaways!

Backyard Baby! Go! Fun! Cute! Sweet! I love the song about the Dog and the Butterfly! Up in the air they like to fly! But they float back down to the warm soft ground laughing - they don't know why! they don't know why? The dog and the butterfly.
OH ... I just had a thought - what if those aren't the exactly right words? I make up my own words frequently when I am not sure of the lyrics .. ha .. laughing at myself - well - it's my version of the dog and the butterfly.
