Father's Day and Giraffe Quilt

Giraffe BOM quilt
It is Father's Day here in Australia and a time for reflection and reminiscing for our family after the loss of our beloved Dad three weeks ago. My husband and I had a lovely meal cooked by my Mum but it was tinged with sadness as there was an empty spot at the head of the table.

I have started quilting my giraffe quilt but it is not really going according to plan but I have forged on and will look good with the 3 foot rule. (If it looks OK from 3 feet away it will do). We have two weeks of school holidays coming up a the end of the coming week and I have a few sewing projects planned. This is my last school holidays before I retire at the end of the year.

Just a reminder that if you are not doing the giraffe quilt and wish to do the zebra quilt just send me an email.


  1. I love it Vicki. I can't wait to get mine finished (or started - still having problems with embroidery programme)

  2. Looks Great. can't wait to join mine. I have enjoyed doing this quilt so much.I am also up to date with the antique rose.

  3. I think it turned out great. If there are any issues with it, I certainly don't see them in the photo.

  4. Your quilt is beautiful. I had a great deal of fun doing the blocks along with you. I made mine a wall hanging and it looks beautiful in my living room.Thanks for all your hard work providing us with the instructions!
