this is one of those moments.
i had this moment previously when it came to making the lion king quilt for amy, and it happened yet again when my friend sarah announced she was pregnant. sarah is a big giraffe enthusiast, and when i saw violet craft's jungle abstractions series, the giraffe was instantly perfect. i knew the quilt was going to HAVE to happen, but i waited for the gender to figure out what shades to do the background. she announced she was having a baby girl (yay!) and after hemming and hawing over pink, i decided to go for purple, which was also one of her wedding colors. i printed my pattern pieced, purchased my fabric and packed it all to take to colorado with me in october where the fun all began. while i had plenty of time to do this project, i obviously waited until last minute to get it going. knocked it all out in a matter of weeks, and then got to celebrate at their baby shower. here's a whole lot of giraffe fun!
