Giraffes

I quilted a sweet little Giraffe quilt for Rae Ellen this weekend.  I took the dresden plate off the frame as there was not one stitch in it.   I'll get started on that one next weekend.    Those little giraffes were so sweet, I couldn't help but smile every time I came up on one.  Premo Soft thread on top. I used a light yellow thread in the middle and the outer border, creat Premo Soft on the white border.  Just quilted free hand all over swirls and a some swirly leaves here and there.  Diamonds in the first border and simple bead board on the final border with some fancy diamond in diamonds on the corner stones.  The orange was Bottom Line, I didn't have any orange Premo Soft, but the thin thread is great, keeps the quilt nice and soft which I why I used the 50 wt Premo Soft. In the bobbin is 60 wt Magna glide.  Nice way to spend an afternoon :)  Batting is warm and natural all cotton.






Look at that face, so sweet....
Ok I got this cute little number out  done and some time left to play.  Got started on this beauty



Check out the linky parties on the side bar, so much inspiration out there.

  2. That is such a cute quilt. I love the on-point squares quilted in the inner border and then in the squares.

  3. Exceptional quilting, as usual. Eventually, it will be difficult to keep 'out-doing' yourself. lol It is evident you are doing what you love to do. What a great quilt!

  9. Beautiful work, Sue! It's easy to quilt things we love, and sometimes we have to give ourselves a kickstart to do the others. Surprisingly, they all seem to grow on us by the end.

    Of the two here, though, I do like the little giraffes!
