A Quilter’s Ark: More Than 50 designs for Foundation Piecing



Author: Margaret Rolfe

Create a menagerie of quilted critters using foundation-pieced block designs! With foundation piecing, you can stitch even the tiniest pieces of these 4″” x 4″” bird and animal blocks with ease and accuracy. Simply trace a design onto your foundation, add oversized pieces of fabric, and sew on the straight lines with your machine! Choose from more than 50 blocks, from panda, giraffe, and rhinoceros to a lion, flamingo, toucan, hippo, koala, parrot, and elephant. Combine any number of blocks to make small or large theme quilts, or piece your blocks into clothing and other projects. Complete instructions, patterns for four quilts, and a special ark block are included.
