Back Cover Information

You'll have boatloads of feathered and furry fun when you set sail in a Quilter's Ark!

Create a menagerie of quilted critters with exciting foundation-pieced block designs by Margaret Rolfe! Piece a panda, generate a giraffe, render a rhinoceros—or sew up a dozen of other bird and animal designs, including a lion, flamingo, toucan, hippo, koala, parrot, and elephant.

Stitch even the smallest pieces of your blocks with ease and accuracy when you use Margaret's fast and fund foundation-piecing technique. Simply trace a design onto the foundation, add oversized pieces of fabric, and sew on the straight lines with your machine!

Combine any number of 4" x 4" or 4" x 2" blocks to make a small or large theme quilt, or piece your blocks into clothing and other projects. Complete instructions, patterns for four quilts, and a special ark block are included.
