    Cool Super Cute Giraffe Quilt - Easy to make too!

    I bought the pattern for this quilt off of Etsy and it was really easy to make! The only recommendation I would have is Not to use fabric that must be matched, I used checked fabric and it was time consuming. I quilted it with a swirling/circle pattern and backed it with canary minky. I finally used the tiny giraffe fabric I bought years ago for the border.

    See cute. Love the fabrics even if they were a pain to match.

    That is so very, very cute. It's so colorful that any baby will love it. The border fabric worked in perfectly for that quilt.

    Your giraffes are really sweet. I love the bright colours. And your quilting is beautiful!

    The designer of this pattern (and many others from Sew Fresh Quilts) is Lorna McMahon and she was a guest speaker at our guild a couple of years ago. She gave a great trunk show as well as explaining how she develops her patterns. I love that they are only made up of squares, rectangles and HST's. I have made two of her patterns and did not find a single error in cutting sizes or instructions.

    Sew Stepanie - great quilt!
    Ginger - Great to hear her patterns are well written. And that she does quilt guild speaking. Have to look into this!
