Our friend, neighbour and fellow quilter Alison Farmer spent many years living in Africa - in Kenya, Zimbabwe, South Africa and even Eritrea.
She loves making quilts - of course. And African fabrics - of course. And getting up before the sun for early morning game drives.
Oh... she loves giraffes.
This quilt was a long time in the making. Alison had the batik panel and the embroidery by Chrsitine Kibuka in her collection for some time. Then the idea came. She drew up a variety of other giraffes to complement the panels and there we have it - Tall Stories. If you look at some of our kits you may even recognise some of the giraffes!
