Alex is dreamy



This was the inspiration for my first quilt (except I used the turquoise background). I love giraffes, and this fabric was fun to match things with! I used the Lasagna pattern, which just has you sew strips together in random order. I love playing with color! It was quilted by my longarm mentor, Barbara Harrell. I was thrilled when she brought my ideas to life...squiggly lines in the center, to give you the feeling of wavy lasagna noodles, and free-form animals in the borders. It is spectacular!
