    Leah—Thank you for your kind words! I made a cute quilt with the Jungle Buddies and my grandson loves it. I’m testing the last kitty now. So I’m getting very close to having the Purr-fect Buddies completed. He’s a little Toyger kitty. =)

    I love your designs. I would love to do something with your zoo and jungle buddies for my grandson just not sure what. I am however patiently waiting for the cats to be completed. The ones that you have done so far are great.
