I have had this Michael Miller 'Giraffe Garden' fabric sitting in my sewing room for almost a year now. I thought it would be nearly close to sinful to cut-up such an adorable sheet of fabric, so I avoided it...'till now. My solution...don't cut it! I decided to leave the fabric intact, and I am so glad that I did!! I used an equally adorable black and tan fabric to for the backing and stitched the quilt together using, what I call, 'freestyle straight stitch' -- letting the machine do the steering more or less. I think my daughter's expression sums it up best:
We are both so in love with this quilt, that I think I am going to have to hunt down some more yardage so that we can duplicate another one, just like it, for ourselves!
