Giraffe Love

My brain is stuck in baby mode. 
It doesn't matter if it's a boy quilt or a girl quilt... it just ends up being a baby quilt in my head. 
I'll have to force myself out of this streak sooner or later... 

My mom has an obsession with giraffes and buys all sorts of giraffe baby stuff for my kiddos so I can't wait to show her this one!
Cute little modern stylized giraffes.

The fabric is from a fat quarter bundle sent to me by Joyce at Jellen's house of fabric for some sewing fun. 
And believe me, I've had fun with it!

Applique up close.

Hanging out.

Ready for snuggling!

For the backing and borders I went with an "In the Beginning" dots print. 
They remind me of googly eyes. 

In the shop.


  1. Love this quilt! Did you follow a pattern, or did you just "wing it"? Also, I would love to know where you got the giraffe template!

  2. Thanks! It's my own design and the pattern is available here - http://frivolousnecessity.etsy.com
