Bunny Week Part 3

I am moving very fast right now trying to get ready for spring market.  Lots of early morning hours and the days are becoming a blur.  But this morning as I looked over at my newest block of the month coming together, I realized that it’s all worth it.  I LOVE designing appliqué more than anything.  What a great joy I get from seeing my drawings come to life in fabric.

A Vintage Christmas

Block one now sits on my cutting table waiting for the finishing appliqué and embroidery,  and I’m almost done with the remainder of the blocks.   I can’t wait to show you my version of “A Vintage Christmas”!  The fabrics are wonderful and it’s been such a pleasure to design with them.

Today I’m working on a appliqué lamb for my quilt.  Don’t worry, I’m still surrounded by bunnies in the studio, but I love lambs almost as much!

And in case you think I forgot,  here’s the bunny for today…I received this beautiful rabbit card in the mail from Betty Duagherty thanking me for the free patterns.  Isn’t it wonderful?

Have a great day everyone!  Surround yourself with bunnies.  It’s that time of year!

    Thanks so much for all the precious bunnies.

  • Karen - I know you must be super busy getting ready for Spring Market. The applique block for “A Vintage Christmas” is sooo sweet! I really like it! I know this will make a simply gorgeous quilt! I look forward to seeing it when you are finished. Have a wonderful Easter celebration with your family!ReplyCancel

  • Kernowquilter - I just love your block. I’ve just completed a survey choosing Christmas cards and felt that “indifferent” was the best way of damning them with faint praise. I then clicked onto your blog.
    I’m now looking forward to an early Christmas and doing this for a wallhanging or whatever size you’re planning. I’m glad it won’t be released for a while as I’ve got loads of things to finish before I start on Christmas, including practising my hand appliqué!
    It’s lovely
    My grandchildren (including a 16 yr old!) are coming over for an egg hunt on Sunday and all our local tourist attractions have them this weekend. They don’t do them for Grandma’s :(
    Happy Easter to you and your family Anne and to all your “readers”ReplyCancel
