materials listed. I don't see the giraffe

There is a difference between the cover photo and the instructions. In the photo the stripes on either side of the giraffe are vertical but in the instruction the diagram shows the stripes horizontal. I didn't really notice this and followed the excellent instructions. Now that I am sewing the borders on, that difference is apparent - and I don't have enough fabric to make a change!

Cynthia Muir on craftsy.com
Cynthia Muir  February 6, 2015

Hi! You're right! The border around the giraffe has the striped fabric all oriented vertically. I'm not sure why I did that originally, but once I put on the outer striped border it didn't match (one going horizontal, one vertical) and I didn't have enough fabric to change the inner one! :) I wished I had just done it horizontally, so when I made the graphics for the pattern, I did it this way. So sorry for the confusion! I hope you still like your quilt in spite of this difference! :)

I followed the directions and have made two quilts. Neither comes close to measuring 40" by 61". Mine measure closer to
38" by 48". I may have widened the horizontal seams too much, but I didn't lose 12" vertically. Like other posters, I too can find no difference between the old version and the new.

Hmmm...you could really use any other print fabric...dots, chevrons, etc.
you could also try a different color scheme...

Here are a couple fabrics I found that are yellow aqua and gray...if I made this quilt again, this is likely the color scheme I would use...
