SNOWMAN ROW QUILT UPDATE

An update on the snowman row quilt.  I am working on the last row and about 1/3 done.  I was anxious to see how things are going to fit together.  I made the rows a bit longer so I could trim in the end.  The left side of the quilt is not trimmed yet.  This is not a good picture.  There are some boxes in the way on the floor so I had to stand to the side to take a picture.  Makes it look sort of lopsided.
I should be working on the last row applique but instead I have been in the sewing room the last two days and will be there again today.  I am prepping blocks for a Noah's Ark pattern by Country Threads.  It is taking a lot more time than I anticipated.  Here is a picture of the pattern cover so you can see what it should look like.
I made a version of a Jan Patek Noah's Ark pattern in 2009.  Here is a picture of that quilt.
I have one more Noah pattern that I could make in the future. It is by Jill Kemp.  Looks like I will have a Noah's Ark quilt collection in the end.   Have you made a Noah's Ark quilt?

Off to the sewing room.  Enjoy your day.

  2. The snowman quilt is looking so fun! ALMOST enough to tempt me to try applique again. : )
    I love that Noah's Ark pattern you are currently working. Very unique. I've never made a Noah's ark quilt, but I should have. That was kind of the theme of my daughter's nursery. I did a receiving blanket out of Noah's Ark fabric, but that is as far as I went with the theme. Every pattern was applique!

  3. I have never made an appliquéd quilt but I do have a Halloween Baltimore kit that is still waiting... I am a bit nervous to try it but so love the look.

    I adore your Noah's Ark quilts and who couldn't use one more?

    Hope you are having a great week.

  5. The snowman row quilt is so cute! I normally don't like row quilts, but this one is a treasure. I also like the Noah's ark quilt. I especially like the water at the bottom.

  8. Gosh - all those quilts are fabulous! No I haven't made a Noah's Ark quilt, but it looks like I need to add one to my ever expanding to-do list. Love the Jan Patek version (your fabric selections are awesome!) - hopefully I'll be able to locate that pattern somewhere...

  9. You were smart to make your rows a little longer when you could. They seldom come out exactly the same ..(experience speaking). Your quilts are looking good.

  20. I wish I had a tenth of that talent. I have never been good at applique. I get into bursts where I attempt, fail, and put away. Eventually my stubborness may see me through so seeing quilts like yours keeps the determination factor up!
