This is a wall quilt, about 5' x 7', commissioned by Graham and Jeanne Gibbard utilizing the expensive and beautiful silk ties that Graham had worn over the years, many depicting giraffes as a subject.  Also included in the compilation were shirt pockets and wool from his dad's shirt, honeymoon and wedding fabrics from garments worn during those occasions, leather components of his suspenders, and quilt remnants from their trunk that had never been actualized into a quilt.  Some sections are actually three dimensional quilt techniques and the surround was all done in classic Scottish plaid from his wool ties.
