    anybody like giraffes?

    this is a childs quilt- ufo---finished
    a few years ago a group of us made this quilt for a friend expecting her first grandchild- the designer was kind enough to allow all of us the pattern- so after quilting the first one for the group gift quilt i made one of my own- finally finished it up.
    so, a February UFO is done- one more off my stack! yea!
    i tried to attach 2 pics- one a better full quilt shot but for some reason am having computer issues-

    What an adorable quilt! I hope you are keeping it to enjoy yourself, but it would be a great quilt for anyone of any age too.

    That's a great quilt. I love the pattern you used, the layout and the fabrics. And of course the giraffes

    You should repost in the "Picture" threads. I think more will see it there. Thanks for sharing.

    I just love your little giraffes, they are so cute. Your quilt is beautiful and you should be very proud.

    This is really cute! Since I just went to Kenya, it is esp. nice to me. (There, they have giraffe just on the side of the roads, grazing--away from the city, of course!)

    everyone liking the giraffes, they are simply a coloring book rendition-
    our little sewing group tends to turn to coloring books often for animal appliques- they tend to be fairly large- simple lines- and oh so cute! a coloring book from the dollar store can be a great applique resource!
    thanks for the compliments.

    Great quilt, I love the colors and what is not to love about a giraffe?
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.
