Zuri The Giraffe

Jun 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Sewing Circle News

Bigfork Bay Cotton Company is bringing out a new quilt pattern of mine. Look how cute it is. They do such an awesome job.

They had a contest to find a name for my giraffe. I had to choose from over 500 names.

I want to thank everyone for such wonderful names. I really could not decide. And I changed my mind over and over. I hope some of you won’t mind if I use some of those fantastic names for my future creations. I will give you credit of course. My biggest dilemma for choosing a name was this little giraffe’s gender. I made him/her and I still cannot decide if he is a boy or she is a girl.

Here is the name I have chosen. Zuri. Which means beautiful in Swahili. I have a strong love for Africa and its amazing landscape, and spectacular animals. And most of all the beauty in the women and children there and how they persevere over challenges with such grace. Zuri represents all of the loveliness that is Africa for me.

If you are interested in this new pattern contact Bigfork Bay Cotton Company. I don’t have any yet…
Turns out there is another Zuri. Look at this darling baby who was born in Ohio.
