The Ark Wall Quilt and a Buffalo

I finished the applique on the Ark quilt, made some changes with the animals and decided to add some different sashing to make it larger.  The center block is about 20" x 22" and thinking I will add one more big border.  Maybe not, it's a nice size now for a wall quilt.
Here's the original from the book, Noah.
Well, I could tell you I was able to snap this pic of the buffalo roaming outside the park, but afraid they are on a ranch that I drive by from time to time.  There are ranches that raise them for their meat and hides.  I'll let it go at that.

  1. I really like your version, that is the fun of the book, you can mix and match the ones you like. Beautiful photo of the bison.

  4. I love the colours in this block , it's going to look great when it's quilted.
    Lots of sheep on my drive to Cowslip this weekend , be nice to see a Buffalo but not likely. Alpaca now and again.
    Have a lovely weekend.
