The animals are lining up to board the Ark! This whimsical 12 month BOM of the ark and it’s sometimes silly animals, all comes together in an enchanting 66 1/2” x 78 1/2” quilt. We’ll start with the large Ark block, and then move on to months where there will be 1 to 3 blocks given in one pattern, ending with the quilt assembly pattern. Most of the embroidery floss colors needed for the entire quilt are used in the Ark block, with a few more being added later. Here is a full list of Cosmo embroidery floss, Prismacolor Premier colored pencils, and fabric amounts used so you can get a jump on getting your supplies ready!

The embroidery on all of these blocks would be very easy for a confident beginner. The piecing in the quilt is the same… easy, but impressive looking! Instructions for cutting all of the embroidered blocks are given in the first pattern, The Ark, so you can have all of your stitching fabric ready to go! I used Moda Warm White muslin for both my stitching background fabric, and my muslin backing  -  3 3/4 yd of each (7 1/2 yards in all.)

The pigs were a little bit leery about getting out on the water! Noah’s crew has outfitted them with floatation rings, so they’re happy now, and hopefully they’ll take them off at some point during the journey! The Canada Geese can’t wait for the rains to start, and the turtles and snails are bringing up the rear...slowly! Three blocks in this single pattern!

Pigs measure approximately 5 ¾” x 3”, block finishes 6” square
Geese are approximately 4 ¾” x 3 ⅛”, block finishes 6” square
Turtles are approximately 3” x 2”, block finishes 3” square
