If I had a pet giraffe, I think I’d name it Spot. The impetus for this quilt was the giraffe-like minky fabric on the back and some cute animal fabric I had leftover from Peek-a-Boo on the Savannah. I fussy cut the animal fabric to center the giraffe in the block, which I surrounded with 2″ squares pulled from my yellow and green scraps boxes. I’m not sure if there is a pattern name for this, as I was just winging it!

This will be included in this year’s Hands2Help Challenge being hosted by Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict @fabricaddictquilts. I will be sending this quilt to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids @littlelambsfoundationforkids

If you take a closer look at the picture, the name fits. The pieces of the past fabric include leftovers from a memorial quilt I made for my brother-in-law (Opening Day) and for my nephew, who loves sharks (A-B-Chomp). And, a little bit that was left from my Silver Lining.

Design? I guess it is a 9-patch with a tweak. When I had the 9-patch blocks on the design wall, they seemed to want more. So I added alternating 1″ strips to the tops and bottoms.

This will be donated to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services for a child in foster care.
