Noahs Ark quilt in the making

This is the second Noahs Ark quilt I have made.  The first one came to me as a BOM and was in the original soft pastel tones. 

 I delighted in giving this to my new baby grandson Leonardo.  It now proudly hangs on his bedroom wall.  When my step daughter Nicole gave us the news she was also expecting a baby (due in September), I decided to make another one this time in brights, edged in black after seeing this version in a quilting magazine. 
The photos here show me pinning the quilt ready for quilting and then quilting on my machine, I have just finished all the straight edged bits around the ditch in each section and now I am about to change over to my BSR foot and do the free motion quilting around the animal shapes and filling in large gaps.  I also couldnt resist capturing my cat "Josie" in the photo as she - curiously was sneaking a peek into my sewing room.
