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!
