I thought you might want to see how the bunny quilt I was working on in the tutorial turned out.
I finished the binding this evening, so it can hop on over to Bearpaws & Hollyhocks tomorrow where it will reside for a bit, along with a stack of the Bette Bunny patterns. Funny story, I think: Last weekend I stopped in at the quilt shop and was wandering around looking at stuff. I came face to face with a display of my Spring! patterns, and it kind of startled me! I don't know why, really, because of course I knew the shop had bought some patterns, but KNOWING was different from actually SEEING them displayed! All I can say is that it was a weird moment.
I thought you might also enjoy seeing a couple versions of the St. Patrick's Day shamrock quilt made up. I meant to post them earlier--right around St. Patrick's Day--but I got side tracked. The quilt top above was made by Julie and when we last talked she wasn't sure if she was going to add an outside border, but she was leaning toward it. The quilt below was made by Phyllis, who had fun turning the shamrocks differently and adding a simpler border.
Remember I mentioned going out to lunch last week with my friend Teri from my office and her mom, Sandy? Sandy was nice enough to bring some of the smaller quilts she'd been working on to show, and one of them was the St. Patrick's Day quilt--I wish I had my camera with me then, but I didn't. Her shamrocks were green and she had added orange in the border--the two traditional colors of Ireland.
I really enjoy seeing what people do with my patterns--if you've purchased the Spring! pattern or Bette Bunny, or made any of the tutorial quilts, by all means give me a link to your blog or send me a photo so I can see what you've done.
I'm hoping Busy Little Amanda will post a photo of her Spring! quilt soon because she told me that instead of messing around with the stem blocks, she just added big green rick rack. What an excellent idea!
Time for my beauty sleep--if I can get these quilt visions out of my head! Thanks for stopping by to chat.
