Spotted in the latest edition of Quiltmaker Magazine– September/October 2016, is this adorable quilt called ‘Georgie Giraffe’ designed by Deb Grogan.  Ever since grandchildren entered the picture for her, Deb has been inspired to design and create quilts for little ones.  What makes this quilt a stand-out is the mix of a traditional block design with a whimsical animal applique design that has three-dimensional features to it (notice those darling 3-D giraffe ears).
