"I have told many stories of animal adventures across dozens of fabric collections. In each story there is a character that stands out from the crowd. These characters have become like friends over the years, I reach for them again and again when starting a new project. As these prints have come and gone I find myself reaching for them and then pulling back, afraid to use the last bits of fabric that I have for fear of finding one day that they are extinct. I don’t think that I am alone in this. For those who have hoarded older prints for years and for those who discovered that sewing was in their blood just a bit too late, I have selected the most coveted and elusive prints from my archive and given them a color make over. In a dizzying array of spectral brilliance I offer you a collection of fabrics where every print is a star, a dream team of critters. Even the best players need support so I have paired these decadent prints with a collection of Pom Poms to cheer them on. The Pom Poms serve as a color interlude that highlight the best that each print has to offer. The only way to truly honor a coveted piece of fabric is to use it, to sew it, to quilt it into something worth saving."
