I knew that I wanted to make a Noah's Ark baby quilt for a friend of mine to add to her cache of Noah's Ark nursery decorations. The picture of her new rocker with my homemade quilt in the back of my mind was the motivation behind my tackling this sewing project even though I had never done any quilting in my life.

I knew very little about making a quilt but knew that I would need some directions and a patter. So, I set out to find a Noah's Ark baby quilt pattern. The only patterns that I could find either involved stitching appliqued animals to the patchwork blocks or paper piecing. One look told me that these were not easy baby quilts for beginners.
Because both my time and my craft skills were limited, I chose to use printed Noah's Ark fabric panels. I quilting the outlines of the Ark, the animals and around the border and what you see in the pictures is the finished product.

Quilting with Noah's Ark Fabric Panels
by: Anonymous

Quilting with Noah's Ark fabric panels is an excellent idea. I admire pieced quilts but they take much longer to complete and are definitely not for beginners unless you are accomplished in other sewing crafts and even then piecing a quilt can be more challenging than making clothes.

In my experience, fabric panels are not only a very attractive alternative to appliqued patchwork or pieced baby quilts, they are often softer and more comfortable as they have fewer seams and stitching that tend to make a quilt stiffer.
