New Noahs Ark Quilt

Looking for a quilt to make for that special child in your life? This Noah's Ark quilt is sure to be a hit with the little ones.

The tale of Noah's Ark has always had  a special place in my heart, so it was no surprise that I designed this quilt. The scene of all the animals gathering two by two and then embarking on a huge timber Ark always conquered the imagination and brought a smile to my face.

Designing the quilt was easy, it was choosing just the right fabrics that proved a bit more difficult. Even though my fabric stash is HUGE, a did not seem to have the fabrics I needed for the soft colours of the animals. I wanted the animals to be as realistic as possible, so ideally the fabrics needed to be uneven and mottled in colour.

Thankfully my dear friend Janice came to the rescue. Unbeknown to me, at the time of my fabric searching Janice was attending a hand dyed fabric workshop. All inspired after her workshop, my Noah's Ark fabric problem proved the perfect opportunity for her to put into practice what she had learned. It was ideal!

And so my Noah"s Ark quilt slowly but surely emerged and now it is ready for all to enjoy! This Noah's Ark quilt pattern is available as a complete set of 10  paper patterns, or as a monthly epattern program. Janice has been busy hand dyeing more fabrics and I have a limited number of fabric sets available for this quilt.
