Noah's Ark is Finished

Well, it is done! I really enjoyed doing this BOM and I am pleased with the way it turned out. I purchased a jelly roll at a local quilt shop. It is not a fabric line. Just some very pretty coordinated prints that they put together, and I thought they would be perfect for the borders on this little quilt. When I started cutting out the stitcheries to finish this up, I decided to cut them a little bit larger. I cut them one half inch beyond the embroidered line that goes around each block. I cut my 2 ½ inch jelly roll strips in half to add the borders. I thought I had it all figured out, but as you can see the blocks came out a size that didn’t allow them to be put together like they should have been. I considered adding borders to the little quilt, but every thing I tried seemed to take away from the stitcheries, so I just did a bit of hand quilting, put the binding on and called that good. Even though mine is a little bit different, I plan to keep it! Now I need to find a nice hanger for it. If you click on the picture, you should be able to see it in a bit larger size...

Oh, Lily, that is really pretty. I love the dark colors...I think I am going to go with dark also. I also like the larger area you did around each stitchery. My main concern for mine will be making everything fit. :o)

You are one fast woman Lilly. Simply lovely!

So very cute. I have yet to start mine, but a few friends and I are doing it together so that should help me to get motivated. If mine comes out close on the cuteness scale to yours, I will be very pleased!

It turned out very pretty Lilly! You can be proud. I still have a few blocks to make and I have been auditioning fabrics. I'm going to have some problems too with the fitting together of all the blocks.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
