The Giraffes quilt, companion to Gorillas, is taking shape. The top is pieced and awaiting applique and thread work before quilting and attaching the free-standing leaves. A few steps in the process:
Photos printed on fabric:
Stitching one-inch squares together:

I hoped to complete this piece for next weekend when I will be seeing the person who commissioned it, but I don't know that I can devote enough time to it over the week. Last night I pushed on too long and made mistakes that I had to frog stitch this morning (rip it, rip it!) Hate to have to do that again! If it isn't finished, I can always bring it "in progress" for the owner to see.
