Quiltmaker Magazine and the Giraffe Family
Aside from sewing squirrels…
And the Little Blooms quilt blocks I showed earlier this week…
And making my house blocks for the Hillside Houses quilt along…
I have also been working on some secret sewing projects. I was contacted by Quiltmaker Magazine. As well as being offered an opportunity to submit a block for their next 100 Blocks, I was also approached to make a submission for a baby quilt to be featured in an upcoming issue.
I am not very good at keeping quilty secrets. This quilt, Giraffe Family, is not due for publication until December first when their Jan/Feb 2016 issue goes on sale. Of course, I can’t share the finish yet, but I do have to spill some of the details now! It’s too exciting to hold it all in!

Elaborating on an earlier design called Giraffe Love, I drew up a revised design on grid paper and wrote myself out a pattern to follow. Yes. There are giraffes.
ordered from Ikaprint.

This finish features my favourite organic wavy line quilting. And a matched binding. Although I have not shared any details in this post, the 12 inch block submission was sent along in the same mailing as the quilt.
I am so looking forward to sharing more details and pictures later this fall!
