Please read through all instructions before beginning!

Subcut four of the 1 1/2" LIGHT strips into 1 1/2" X 4 1/2" rectangles. You will need 36 rectangles. Stitch these to the long side of the unit pieced in Step 2, opposite the side with the triangle.

Using the thirty-six 2 1/2" squares of FOCUS fabric that were set aside earlier, place a square on each unit pieced above, on the opposite corner from the light triangle. Stitch diagonally, fold open, and press.

Trim one or both inside layers to reduce bulk, if desired.

.~Name the Giraffe Contest.~


Submit name suggestions to:


by Midnight June 5th, 2011

Bigfork Bay Cotton Company recently licensed this adorable giraffe design from Debi Hubbs to add to her ever growing collection of art quilt patterns.

The giraffe design didn't officially have a name, so Debi and Bigfork Bay Cotton Co. thought it would be a great idea to have YOU name the pattern! Isn't that so fun?

To submit names simply email traci@bigforkbaycottonco.com.

You can enter as many names as you like. In case of duplicate names, the first name entered will be chosen. We need to name the giraffe soon! So get your names in A.S.A.P.

The contest officially closes Midnight June 5th, 2011.

And the winning name gets?

The person who selects the winning name will receive a pattern signed by Debi Hubbs and a matching fabric kit!

The pattern will not be ready until the end of June. However we are offering pre-orders so click here to visit our website or call us toll free at: 866-245-5718.

Good Luck to all of you and we can't wait to see what name Debi picks.
