    I made a Noah's Ark for my grandson from Margaret Rolfe's book, "A Quilter's Ark". It is paper piecing. I found the book on Amazon. I chose the animals I wanted to do and made 2 of each. It also has the ark and Mr. & Mrs. Noah. I also went through my stash and picked fabrics with butterflies, ants etc. and made cut 2 of each. I did a few simple blocks (2 each) then put sashing between all the blocks. My daughter then played the game of she pointed to one and he had to find the other. It fits his youth bed. I had a lot of fun finding the fabrics for the different animals; such as a black and white zebra stripe, tiger stripe, green dotted for a frog etc. Whatever you choose have fun.

    Have you tried to Google for free Noah's Ark pattern or a coloring book page? I'm sure you could find different ways to make your Ark without spending your $$ on a pattern. Good luck. I am sure you will have a great time!

    Clotilde's is adorable, but not $50 adorable (for just the pattern, not a kit), imho.

    Somebody has worked hard to produce an original quilt pattern and people are prepared to pay the price or it wouldn't sell. There are a lot of cheap patterns out there and I have read the complaints about some of them on this board. The Kookaburra Cottage quilt patterns are well written and easy to follow. There are also 10 separate patterns to this one as it started as a block of the month. If you do not feel able to pay that price then that is fine but it doesn't mean the pattern is not worth it.The quilt is very big and to be quite honest you couldn't buy the fabric for $50 even in America where fabric is relatively cheap so comparing the price to a kit is irrelevant. I have made several of these in different colourways as they look so good finished.

    If you don't want to applique you can always embroider the animals, maybe one per block, and only have the the ark to applique. Assuming you have an embroidering machine or you could pay for embroidered blocks. Don't forget the rainbow. Can't have a Noah's ark quilt without a rainbow.

    Clotilde's is adorable, but I believe I'd be drawing me some animals, and make my own appliques, rather than spend 50 bucks on a pattern!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    BOMquilts.com has a Noah's Ark pattern by Sindy Rodenmayer -- this is a free quilt pattern site that I came across when I was playing on the internet

    Surely that price on Clotilde is a mistake. They have similar patterns listed below that look to be made by the same designer for the $20 range. $50 is TOO much for a pattern alone--if it were a kit..that would be different.

    I made a Noah's ark quilt once and used coloring books for the designs. I found a page that had the whole ark with animals for a center square and had squares of pairs of the other animals all around it. I drew the designs on white fabric and colored them in with fabric colors. Don't remember what I did with the quilt. But color books are great for quilts.

    I bought one of those soft book panels, cut up the pages and sashed them. It made a darling quilt.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    The Noah's Ark pattern on Clotilde is $15.98 and it includes the wall hanging.

    ???? Are you looking at the same pattern the rest of us are looking at? This is one of two quilts listed under "Noah" (the other one is an embroidered quilt) and the price is $49.98.

    I love that Chlotilde's pattern, but would never pay that much for a pattern. Somebody posted a site for coloring pages on here the other day, and it had tons of animals. Just thinking that you could surely come up with a very unique one of your own, rather than pay a fortune for just the pattern.

    i thought so too but when i went back and read it again it states"fabric not included." sorry, it's cute but not THAT cute. no way i would pay that much for just a pattern.
