Baby Quilt for our first grandchild. The giraffe is appliqued which took much longer than I thought! When I had the top pieced the white area just seems to need something else. So I looked to no avail in my files for a branch of some kind but didn't find anything I liked. About that time MOPS did the designs of the branches w/flowers. Through all of the discussions she offered me one of the designs. It worked perfectly! So a big grateful thank you to MOPS. Pic 1 is a close up, #2 full view, #3 close up of the branch, #4 close up of the outline sections I used to do some of the quilting. Baby shower is this weekend.

It is a beautiful quilt and your appliqued giraffe is a lovely centerpiece. You used the leaves to great effect, they look quite elegant the way you placed them. They go well with the leaves in the embroidered ones and the quilted ones are pretty as well. Beautiful work!
Congrats on becoming a grandma.

You must be so excited to be having your first grandchild! I am so happy for you and pray all goes well...Your quilt is amazing! Mops design is the perfect finish for the area. The giraffe has just eaten from the leaves and he is leaving. Love it!-Toogie
