There are those that seem to know exactly when something in the garden is at the perfect tenderness/sweetness and the buffet is open!!!! Then, there are the bunnies who epitomize sweetness, cuteness and all the lovely cozy things we like so much. These photos are all of the second kind and I am in love!!! Beware!!! This post is picture heavy!!!!!!
Didn’t I tell you???Aren’t they just the sweetest????? In the white area (very center) there is a little micro-stippling and McTavishing. The larger white area was marked in an “on point” grid that was stitched with curved lines. I will definitely do that again! The effect is quite impressive for such a simple stitch pattern, don’t you think?? The flowers and bunnies were outlined and the outer edge of the tablecloth/border fabric seam (the blue ‘strip’) was straight stitched for definition.
Above is the border stitching. I call it “loopy bunny ears”!!!!! And finally a quick view of the back and the matching pillow case…..
One last shot (forgive me…..really, I love this quilt!!!!).
For those who may have missed what prompted this project, you may go here, here and here. The vintage tablecloth (center) was purchased while we were in the Black Hills (S.D.) the end of May. The pink border fabric, binding and backing were picked out at my all-time fave shop located in Belle Fourche, S.D., named The Bakery Fabrics. Awesome shop!!!!! Again, the thread (for the center portion) was a pale yellow Aurifil Mako 50 and Isacord in a delicate lilac (40 wt) was used for the border stitching. Both are wonderful to work with. The finished size is approximately 58″x 76″. This little quilt will be on its way to OKC first thing Tuesday morning with many prayers within its fibers. Til next time….
