The Ben Franklin Store in Oconomowoc has Quilt Fest this weekend.. about 6 months ago they put together a package of 5 fat quarters together for the contest. The contest is to use the fabrics in a quilt. These are then judged before the show for first second and third place. Last year I took second place with my Drazil quilt. This year I took second place with Zuri. I knew right away what I wanted to do with the fabrics.. I have been wanting to make this quilt for sometime. I found the photo online and got permission from the photographer and the owner of the photo to use it. It all worked out great. I was done with the giraffe's and decided I didn't like the quilt.. I tweeked it a bit and lo and behold it was better. I finished it and took it to the store. While I was working on this quilt there was a baby giraffe born in Green Bay. The sad thing was the baby died about 36 hours after being born. The mother's name is Zuri. So I decided to name this quilt after her. The show starts on Friday and runs through Sunday. I'm soooo excited.. here is a photo of the fabrics I had to use and my finished quilt.
