Christmas wish | Noah’s Ark quilt

Gift: A small 19-inch by 17-inch Noah’s Ark rectangular tapestry quilt made of 75 percent recycled fabrics by an artist in Peru.

Description: Its boldly colorful characters would seem to captivate a child of any age. The characters on the quilt are three-dimensional, some stuffed with material and rising an inch off the quilt.

Cost: $169

Where purchased: Artisans’ World Marketplace, 8130 Main St., Suite 103, Lakewood Ranch.

Why I like it: Not only does it have the usual roster of Noah cast members, like elephants and giraffes, but it also has llamas, kangaroos and three tiny yellow birds who are living on the roof of the ark.
