Just when you thought it couldn't get any cuter! The Giraffe has friends!! AMAZING!
I love anything African and have been collecting everything scrappy that could possibly represent the colors and patterns of Africa. After making the giraffes I felt like it wasn't complete - that it needed something added to it. Jonas and I went through all the African animal choices (I nixed his tongue-in-cheek idea of a mother baboon picking nits off her baby) and we settled on elephants. He designed the silhouettes and I did the rest, using many of the same fabrics as the giraffe quilt. I love the "made fabric" method of quilting and already have my next idea for a larger quilt made with these interesting, unique and awesome blocks!
Oh how could you not fall in love with this piece! Love the vibrant colours of the made fabric and both sets of silhouettes are beautiful.
They are absolutely gorgeous.
Victoria I seem to have lost the ability to post on this site -have you changed the settings recently.
Cyndi, my niece is at school in Africa, and my son went there on his honeymoon. You've given me some great ideas for quilts for them. Thank you so much for sharing your creations!
I'm a zebra fanatic, and I put a zebra in every quilt I make. So, naturally, my first thought is: where's the zebra? It can't be perfect without her, but it's a great beginning. LOL
Both quilts are fabulous, a lovely diptych
Me too-wondering what happened
