The long eyelashes on the mother giraffe reminded Jamie of his mom. So, Serengeti Son is, in a way, an ode to his mother. And along with the beauty of that thought, there is great beauty in the quilting of the quilt.

I bought the pattern for the 2 giraffes to make as toddler room quilts. This quilt takes the giraffes to another level. Just stunning and the quilting is gorgeous. The pattern is called My Favorite Earrings Giraffe by carolinagirlz2.

This was fun to see. It made me think of all the giraffe families I saw in the wild in Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa.
