The little boys' panel is filled with trucks, trains and sayings
about little boys and the special
places they hold in our hearts.
The fabrics that coordinate with this panel

be a boy or girl? Look at these
soft yellows and greys....
This color combination is popular
in projects for both boys and girls.
all of these are available in snuggly brushed as
well as cotton!
EVEN THE PANELS!!
My dear, talented friend, Barb, from
Coach House designs has designed 5!!
patterns using Hugaboo.
They are as sweet as can be.

it as much as they do.
Visit your favorite Quilting Fabric store

a good idea....)
Hope that you enjoy "Hugaboo!"
