Giraffe Love Finish

It’s been a very productive week around here with a quilt finish, a few mug rugs and the August block for the Classic Meets Modern Quilt Along.

First, the giraffes:


This little quilt kit was a lucky find during our travels for the July Shop Hop. The kit came from Quilt Junction in Waterford and is quite appropriate for a little one expected to arrive in November sometime. The older sibling has a giraffe quilt with the Giraffe Love fabric in the citron colourway (see the quilt pictured in the top banner image :)) so it’s only fair that this little one has a quilt the same, but different.

Here’s the back:


Mmmm… that micro chenille is a gorgeous blue and soft as butter. I’m fairly certain that Momma will be pleased with this one – even if Baby won’t know the difference (at first)! Never-the-less, it’s finished and ready for Baby whenever he (we’re told) arrives, so I’m linking up with Finish-it-up-Friday over at CrazyMomQuilts – two weeks in a row :).

And now on to mug rugs – also finished:


I don’t know if mug rugs are still “all that” the way they were a couple of years ago, but another Shop Hop find, this time at the Marsh Store in Ilderton, resulted in a little mini-charm pack of thirties fabrics. In case you want to know how I did it :), I used four 2 1/2″ squares per mug rug, sashed with 1 1/2″ strips of white, quilt in a Greek Key type of arrangement and bind – easy peasy!


On the back of each is a thirties print from the stash – a little white terrier romping across a light blue background. Perfect for relaxing with a treat on the front porch :).

And last, but not least, here is the August QAL block:


Love that pop of turquoise blue! The Churn Dash block is another favourite of mine – the first “big boy” quilt I made for son P. was a Churn Dash block, machine pieced and hand quilted way back when I had more time (in theory anyway!).


Hoping your weekend is filled with great weather and delicious treats :)!

      Thanks! I think the folks at the shop who put the quilt kit together are the clever ones – but I’m happy to take advantage of their cleverness :).
