    Love George the Giraffe!! You are providing him with a lovely tree to keep him company and well fed!! Your little lady will arrive January 4, right?? My best friend and I were both due then…her son arrived December 22 and my daughter on January 22!! Praying for an easy delivery! Happy Thanksgiving.

    Adorable! Can’t wait to see the finished project and that baby girl!

  4. I appreciate hearing the details of your process here (and the laughs each step along the way)! I love the arrival of little ones … they’re great excuses for making lots of cute quilts. Best wishes wrapping this beauty up!

    BTW: I think Baby Girl is going to take her own sweet time coming into this world … I’m thinking she’ll be a 2019 baby. : 0

  5. George is looking fabulous! I’m thrilled he’s getting something so colourful to eat. Couldn’t have the poor dear go hungry.

    Everything about this quilt is PERFECT – the colors, the shapes, the stitching, those eyes! Everything! My guess it Dec 24th…

    Hello Roseanne, This is such an incredibly cute quilt you and Sue are creating. I love to do applique and this quilt just says how fun it is. My guess for baby girl will be Dec. 17th. Thank you for sharing.

    Very cute quilt!! I am choosing the 30th! That’s the day my twin grandsons were born, so it’s special to me!! Of course, they were five weeks early, but perfect, nonetheless!

  13. Rochelle Summers says:

    George is darling and those colorful leaves really make the quilt sparkle. I choose December 31st. But then who knows. Can’t wait to see the completed quilt.

  14. Marti says:

    What a cute quilt! Your Elna makes a very nice blanket stitch too.

  15. So unbelievably cute. Especially George munching on those yummy leaves. I’m picking Dec 25th.

  16. Mari says:

    Oooh, cute giraffe! ANd I love the colorful leaves, too. Do you know that there are very popular giraffe toys called Sophies? So George looks like a Sophie to me! Sinc emy sister was born on CHristmas, I’m going to cheer for Decmber 25! 🙂

    This is going to be fantastic. The giraffe is looking great and I think the colorful leaves really adds more color interest to the quilt. Great Job! As to the date I’ll just line up with you and say the 23rd.

  18. Shannon Fleming says:

    This is going to be so cute! The leaves are the perfect touch.

  19. Carol S. says:

    I’m loving the progress on your giraffe…it’s so, so cute! Let see, I’ll say December 27th for baby girl’s arrival.

  20. JoanG says:

    What a fun baby quilt. I love your giraffe and all the leaves he has to eat. My guess for birth date is December 25th. What a Christmas present that would be!

  21. I am going with December 21st. Now, to the blog entry. George is looking spectacular and the blanket stitch is perfect. I love the leaves. This will be such a wonderful quilt for Baby Girl, cherished by all who will cherish her. Wishing all a safe delivery!

  22. Hearts for eyes, brilliant! How fun to use those pre-programmed stitches.
    As for dates? My firstborn was due Dec 24th; hubby was hoping for no later than the 31st (for tax reasons!) and she arrived as the first born of the new year for the town we lived in at the time – Jan 1st.
    So, I’ll opt for Jan 1st!!!
    HA!
    Welcome, Baby Girl!

  23. Roseanne — your blanket stitching looks fantastic! I like the heart shaped eyes. I’m definitely looking forward to the final reveal!

  24. This is a very cute quilt. I love the giraffes face. Maybe he needs a cute bird on him. Giraffes and Tickbirds have a symbiotic relationship.

  25. Your post title made me giggle, just a bit. It took me back to what to my high school days when I’d hear others talking about their weekends, if you get my drift (drinking parties). Anyhoo, he’s looking good! Are you tired of stitching around those leaves yet?? As to dates, I would go with December 12th, since that’s a favorite date of mine. 🙂

  26. I absolute the love how you appliqued George the Giraffe and the tree with its falling leaves! I personally have limited applique experience. My most challenging was appliqueing glasses on a Hazel Hedgehog, and I remember what a challenge those thin pieces of fabric were! Everything looks great, and I can’t wait to see the finished quilt! TGIF! Mary
