    Tummy time quilt for almost-here twin boys

    My cousin's DIL is expecting twin boys in February. Grandma asked me to make a large giraffe themed quilt for them to play on together. The color request was brown, tan, navy, and powder blue. Giraffes were not in my stash. I got the brown focal fabric from another member (through the In Search Of section) and had lots of fun finding a couple other pieces on-line. Stash filled in the rest.
    When the navy and white piece arrived in the mail, I was dismayed. It is 100% cotton as described. Unfortunately, the seller did not mention that it was drapery weight. It was too perfect to leave out but hand quilting through it was a challenge. I think it will work well on the floor anyway and last through lots of rough-and-tumble play and washings. At 64" square - the little guys will have a football field to play on!
    I've got some of the backing fabric left over and have drawn up a pattern for little stuffed giraffes to add as my gift. Today's project!

    Wonderful quilt. I really love how you managed to incorporate the giraffe theme so well given the requested color theme. The mother to be is sure to love it.

    Wow! You nailed that request! It turned out lovely and I am sure the new little ones will use and treasure that quilt for years to come! I love the pattern you used as well. Good job!
