When your husband is in charge of finding out if the baby you want to make a quilt for is a boy or girl (or nursery colours, which is even better!) then you better be prepared for mistakes. Like my husband telling me our mutual (though not close) friend was expecting a girl. Except. Yeah, no. They had a boy. Sigh.
But I had already pulled this stack and started cutting it and so I decided to go ahead with it anyway because I thought it was just too cute to resist.
This is Accidental Giraffe:
|The starting fabric was that giraffe print I have had for ages. Then I added in a ton of prints from the recent collection Pond by Elizabeth Hartman and that adorable kitty print that is bright pink but reading in these pictures as red.|
|I went with a bold solid dark turquoise colour for the binding. It pops against the pink and doesn't make this colour too dainty, IMO.|
