UPDATE ON TWO PROJECTS

I pieced all the blocks that surround the applique block for Mary Ellen's Garden.  All put together and ready for the pieced triangles for the border.

I did some of the animal applique blocks for the Noah's Ark quilt while we were on vacation.  I just never shared the pictures.  Some of the animals are not what we think of as having been on the Ark.  The patterns are by Country Threads.
The Alligator

Mountain Goat

Lizard

Camel

Hippopatmus

Polar Bear

Elephant

Rabbit (I think I have shown this one on a previous post.)

I have lots of stitching to do.  Hope you enjoyed your visit.

Mary Ellen's Garden looks wonderful! That was fast, my friend.
Hope there were lots of cages on the ark--but I guess they all had to be in there somewhere. : )
