    Giraffes in a Row

    I just finished a cute baby quilt top called Giraffes in a Row. Pattern by Sewfreshquilts.com
    The quilt was a little smaller than I wanted so I borrowed (with permission) some inspiration from Mary of the Needled Mom blogspot for the borders. I changed the border a bit by putting some words in Morris Code in the border. It's not something that jumps out at you, but if you carefully look at the colored blocks in the border, you can see it.

    That is an adorable baby quilt.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

                You can google Morris Code and find sites that show what each letter is in code. Can you figure out the three words? One is on the left side, one on top, and one wraps around the bottom right corner.

                The dots and dashes for each letter are sewn together and letters are separated by background blocks.

                            Better look for MORSE code though.
                            TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.
