Noah has a very red ark-Cornelia FNSI

Last night I put together the applique for a modified version of one of the blocks from the Noah and Friends Kookaburra Cottage BOM. I had intended to make just the middle block into a baby quilt for a friend of mine, the baby's name is Noah. However AFTER buying all the fabric I am not so sure that's what I want to do anymore. Consequently last night went like this:
  • Buy a "Handmade" magazine
  • Look through magazine and ring mum-complaining about not knowing what to sew
  • Get out lots of fabric and ring mum again (same complaint)
  • Decide that I love the fabrics I bought and ring mum again (this time complaining about not knowing what to use the fabrics for since I had changed my mind)
Mum told me to just make the Noah block anyway and then decide later what I want to turn it into and who I want to give it to. Being the good daughter I am :) I listened and am now super happy with the result!

I am still not completely sure what it will end up being, but I think it is very cute and the colours are quite funky! If anyone has any bright ideas feel free to contribute!

Cornelia :)


  1. I love your Noah block. It is so much fun to see what everyone is doing for FNSI. Can't see what you do next.

  2. How precious!!! Great job.
    This is my first time participating FNSI so I was very happy to accomplish something.
    Take care.

  3. Lovely block - you could make it into a Library Bag or Toy Bag/Nappy Bag or cushion. I love the colours - looks great!

  4. What a cute block! I like Jody's idea about the Library or Toy bag :)

  5. You have made a lovely block! I'm sure you'll get an idea what to do with it.
