We all got a page of instructions. You must use the fabric on the front; you can use up to four additional fabrics; it must be at least 20" square with no maximum; and it must have a floral theme of some sort. OKKKKKK. I was busily using the back of my mind to come up with something. Think, think, think. Then a few weeks before Easter I thought, BUNNIES! I checked out two patterns I already had bookmarked. Hum, standing bunny or jumping bunny?
I decided on the jumping bunny when I realized I needed to add some flowers. Here's the sketch I came up with:
|So, it isn't that beautiful of a drawing. But please notice the really nice looking bunny on the bottom right. The rest of the bunnies are ok, but not terrific. Hopefully the finished quilt will look much better than this.|
I decided doing the haunch in a different color didn't work because some of my colors were really bright while others weren't. The leg just looked wrong.
This project is going to be my OMG for May. I'm striving for a finished quilt. The bigger issue is the guild reveal of our finished Ugly Fabric quilts is Sat, 5/6. Yikes. I need to get a hop on to get this. For the last several days I've been cutting out the little tiny pieces. (The block is 7" or so and the smallest pieces in it are 1.5" square.) I'm hoping to get all the bunnies cut out by tomorrow and then I can get them made up. It does go together fairly quickly. Then a couple of paper pieced flowers and I'm ready to put this together. Yea, I know, I'm cutting it pretty close. Time will tell!
Now to the goals. I had way too much on the goal list last week.
