bites the dust - and not before time.

This is my Noah's Ark Quilt started whilst The Scot was sick in 2008, nearly finished in 2009, hence the Year on the front but finally finished in 2010.

It was a free bom  by Lynette Anderson who is a delightful designer, her blog is http://lynetteandersondesigns.typepad.com/lynette_anderson_designs/noahs-ark-.html

Very small but quite a bit of embroidery and I'm not sure what to do with it lol.

note to self, carefully pack ALL fabrics needed to complete the quilt.  The red binding suited it best  imho, the cutting table is covered in fabrics that were auditioned,  yes The Scot does just roll his eyes..

and of course the obligatory label

Now tomorrow, housework or gardening depending on the weather.  Both very long overdue.

Err - hang it on the wall? It is lovely birdy and holds memories of a good outcome so why not put it on the wall to enjoy.

Well done yet again.x

It's lovely, Sheila. I like the red touch with the binding. You should display it. Like Noah and the Animals, You and the Scot are survivors! The quilt is a reminder of that. :)

HI Shelia,
How lovely to see you Ark finished and I love the red binding. The label on the back is a nice touch too, lets hope ti raises lot of money in England for the Rainbow Kids.
well done

the red binding looks good - gives it a bit of zing around the edge, which complements the red stitching in the middle ...
... now if I can just work out how to clone 2 or 3 spare copies of myself so that I/we can get a few more things done, then I might have to have a go at one of these myself ... lol
