Another Bunny Quilt

I had to work late tonight and then do the Speed Racer mad dash to Fed Ex and the post office with only about two minutes to spare. Seriously, I handed my packages off to the postman outside the post office as he was emptying out the mailbox for the last time this evening. After all that, I'm feeling terminally unmotivated to quilt or blog this evening, so I thought I'd just show you what I've been working on lately. I have one small applique piece to add and then I can pin this top and start quilting. Do you think I can muster up the enthusiasm and energy to do that tonight? NO! Apparently not! Do I know that Easter's going to be here in just a few days? Yes, as a matter of fact I do. Maybe the quilting fairies will come tonight while I slumber and take care of it for me. One can only hope!


If the stars align and magic occurs, this quilt will grace my Easter table. Somewhat ironically, it's doubtful any FOOD will actually grace my Easter table this year, because neither of our kids will be home and we'll be going over to my in-laws for an Easter lunch. My husband talked to his mom, and they agreed we'd bring dessert. My husband's talking about making cupcakes; I'm thinking Marie Callender's is right on the way and they make an awesome Kahlua Cream Pie. What's Easter, after all, without some grown-up chocolate? The Double Cream Lemon Meringue Pie doesn't sound too bad either.

Now that I think about it, I have a feeling that if I could just bury my face in a Kahlua Cream Pie right NOW, I might feel a little more enthusiastic this evening. But no, I'll wait until Sunday. Tonight I have two cats to battle for rights to the bathroom--a nice hot bath sounds awfully good!

That quilt is too, too cute! Love the wild bright fabrics. Can't wait to see it finished. Good luck getting it done by Sunday!

Don't know what a Kahlua Cream pie is but anything sounds good when it has chocolate - lol ! Love the bunny quilt and your post on quilting was brilliant. I am looking for a machine just to do fmq as my Janome is not too hot on that. Thanks for the info.

Too, Too Cute, You better get this done. You have 3 more days. What happened to the diet? That pie doesn't sound like it's on the list.

Great quilt and lovely bunnies. I 'd put in on the table, couch chair or whatever, finished or not!

What a cute quilt and the way you get things done - I bet it will be on your table by the weekend. Can I have a slice of that pie :)

Happy Easter - Karen

Love that quilt! You do such lovely, lovely work! How wonderful you get to bring dessert, and don't have to cook a meal. I think a Kahlua Cream Pie is just the ticket! Yum, yum, yum!!

Somebunny *needs* that quilt! You have the pie and send me the quilt, K? LOL I have the masses coming for Easter, so no quilting for me until after Easter!

You have the cutest bunny quilts Kim! And funny, I just had the Easter dinner conversation with my mom this afternoon. Our kids will be gone too, so it's just hubby and I and mom and dad. We were going to forget it all and just have enchiladas, but hubby got all sentimental on us and he insists on tradition!

What a cute quilt that is. Love those carrots. Like you and Anna, it's just hubby and I at Easter too. I bought a ham today so that's what we'll have. But that pie sure sounds good that you mentioned. But then so do cupcakes. LOL!

What a cute quilt. I am sure that it will look lovely on your "foodless" table. Have a great Easter. I think all of the desserts sound great.
