It’s Basket Day!

It’s April 5th and that means basket day at Bunny Hill!   Block number 4 of “A Tisket, A Tasket is ready and you can find the free pattern here.   I’ve filled the basket with a chocolate bunny and added a little wool chick!

Block Four Applique Photo

The bunny fabric is the brown check from “Sultry” by Moda Fabrics, # 30167-15.  I used the wrong side of the fabric for the arm and the back ear.

Here’s a sneak peek at the sashing I’m using to finish the quilt.  It’s from the Howard Marcus line “Legacy” by Moda fabrics # 46033-12.  I fell in love with this fabric and there’s not a block in the quilt that doesn’t go perfectly with it.   Very vintage and very pretty!

Sneak Peek Row 1

I’ll be giving you the outer border soon so you can be sure and get fabric if you want it.

Here’s the yardage requirements if you need them:

Sashing:  1/2 yd
Sashing posts:  1/4 yd or 1 fat quarter
Inner border:  1/4 yd
Outer border:  3/4 yd
Binding:  3/8 yd, or 3/4 yd bias

If you’re working on the redwork version we’re sewing ours together now.  It’s just so cute!

The sashing and posts are from my very own Chelsea Manor fabric line!  The sashing is # 1938, Color 8.  The posts are # 1945 Color 88.  I’ll be choosing the rest of the fabrics for the redwork quilt very soon in case you want to purchase fabric while it’s still available.

And no, I didn’t forget about the woolies out there!  If you want to see the wool version go to Cottons ‘N Wool!  Anne’s in charge of the “woolies” and I know she has a version you will love.

Have a fun Sunday everyone!  Happy quilting & stitching!
