    I like bee fabrics, and dragon flies, and frogs, and dinasaurs, and lady bugs, and ants, and praying mantis, but I don't like things that crawl on their belly like a reptile. Yuk

    We have these two in our shop, and they aren't on a lime green background!

    How about other bug fabrics?

    Ooh, I have that one in blue! I love bug fabric!

    All those creepy crawly and slithery things have a 6 1/2" square space reserved for them on the I Spy quilt I want to make for my daughter's special needs 2nd grade classroom.
    PM me for my address if you have some that you would like to donate for my quilt.
    Hugs and smilesssss, Linda

    I can use a bug fabric. Not affraid of the bugs that are on the fabric because I know I can scare them with a hot iron.

    Both are okay for me although I am always on the lookout for snake fabric. My DH is a Herpetologist (reptile person) at the AZ Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson and specializes in rattlesnakes. Here's a pic of a wall-hanging I made for him that he has hanging in his office at work. Hope it doesn't creep everyone out!

    Love "bee" or any other bug fabric but I am sooooooo glad that there is no rat fabric that would really freak me out and put me off quilting forever.

    I love bees..insects..nature, but not particularly in a cartoon form. I can understand why lots of people like it though...far less scary!

    I think the insects (bugs) are really cute. Not so sure about snakes, though. Love the bee fabric, really cute.

    I always add a ladybug to every quilt that I applique. Sometimes I add it to the label on the back but it is there!

    How about these? Do they creep you out? I had to have this but haven't decided what to do with this FQ. Any ideas will "bee" entertained.

    I love any kind of critter fabric. I made my grandson a bug quilt a few years ago. As for bees, it's not that I don't like them, but I am allergic--not life and death, but I swell up big time and sometimes (depend on where stung)I get a red streak following a vein.

    Collect more bugs and put them in "jars" on shelves. I am collecting fruits and veggies for the same thing.

    I am making a wall hanging using insect fabrics (for my son). So far it looks really cute. I still have to finish one side - it's going to be reversible - and sandwich and quilt. Does anyone know how to keep the photo looking original and not fade? I don't think my computer ink is permanent! Thanks.

    I like insect fabrics where the theme of the quilt can use it. This photo is of a quilt I made, wanted a fresh-air, summer picnic effect. My niece wanted pink and green.
