Gee, It's a Giraffe

Especially created for my teaching friend, Shelly's firstborn, little Silas. I was nervous about this creation, simply because I'm not known for my artistic skills, but gave it a shot anyway.
All fabric is fat quarters except for one yard of off white, 1/4 yard of the striped, and the 1/3 yard of the blue with various circles.

Finished quilt dimensions are: 44 x 48". Happy to share pattern if interested.

Happy Home Quilt

Sail Away (baby quilt)

This quilt came about because I found a couple of fat quarters with fishy-type designs and because I found one fat-quarter with a wave pattern. So, one cold, lonely winter night when I was missing the ocean I decided to undertake this design.

Everything on this blanket is a fat quarter except for the yellow gingham, which was about 1/4 yard scrap, the navy blue and the white. Oh, yes, the binding was left over red from something else, so it wasn't a fat quarter either.

MATERIALS: Lots of fat quarters (I used about eight)
1 yard of white
1/3  yard yellow gingham
1/2 yard navy
1/2 yard for binding
1 1/2 flannel or minky for back
