Baskets and Bunnies

  I showed you pieces of this quilt  back in August 2012 and now it is finally done (except for the label)..It is a small quilt 28"wide and 34" in length. Not small enough to be a doll quilt and not big enough to be a baby quilt really.  I hand appliqued and hand quilted it. I just put some
bunnies in each corner and then quilted bunnies in between, with some swirls to look like bunnies were
hopping all around. That doesn't show up very well, does it?  It was a fun quilt to make and an easy project to pick up and take along with me. I used polyester batting and I wouldn't use it again because I wanted this quilt to look old since using the civil war fabrics and I think it is too puffy. I would have rather had a flat looking quilt but we learn from doing something every time, don't we???  It's live and learn for me!!!

    1. Thanks for your nice comment, it was a fun quilt to make..The bunnies were not planned when I started the quilt but I just thought it needed something in the borders. I like them hopping around the corners..

  4. What a precious quilt and I actually like the puffiness! Thanks for sharing.
