Remember This?


Well, it's going to need a good name soon, because this is what I spent the evening doing--


I'm a little less than halfway done quilting the background "texture." After that, it's just quilting the detail on the applique and then the borders--and I'd guess that the quilt might be ready for binding by the end of the week or thereabouts.

If you're a new reader or missed a few posts, then you probably don't know, but this quilt started out as the Rabbits Prefer Chocolate block of the month by Bunny Hill, until I got a little sidetracked and distracted. Or maybe someone slipped me a hallucinogenic drug. Or a flashback to the 60s? In any event, the rabbits got carried away and turned into something a little different from what they started out as.

Now, of course, the original quilt name, Rabbits Prefer Chocolate, no longer fits the quilt, so it needs a new name. Can you think of one? Suggestions will be accepted through Thursday evening (March 1st). I'll either pick a winner then or, if I can't decide on my own, I'll post a poll with a few of my favorites so everyone can help pick a winning name.

Of course, there's always a prize for winning, and this is no exception. The winner will receive two Redwork Renaissance charm packs. Everyone's gotta love red and white, right? Just like everyone's gotta love rabbits! Good luck and thanks for helping me out!

The rabbits seem to reside in a high end neighborhood and play with all the latest "toys." How about - 90210 Cottontail Lane. The quilt is adorable.

Martha said...

"Busy Bunnies" came to mind...cute quilt...congratulations. Thanks for the great give-a-way.

Harry days.

Sherrie said...

"And away we go" would be my idea. They are busy going somewhere..!

Fiesta said...

I meant to write Harey days not harry

How about "Rabbits on Chocolate"?

Amy said...

I'm thinking, "Easter Parade," "Extreme Chocolate," or "Cavalcade of Rabbits." Whatever the name, it's an amazing quilt.

teresamnj said...

So cute! "Bunnies Gone Wild" comes to my mind! :)

Anonymous said...

These rabbits make me think of the Easter Bunny's kids going wild on Easter night while he's out delivering candy and hiding eggs. How about "No Adult Supervision" or "Wascally Wabbits"?

Sharrieboberry said...

I'm thinking. Chocolate Rabbit Pandemonium is my suggestion. :)

debbie m said...

Runs like a Rabbit was my first thought, and this quilt definately redefines that.

Deb said...

Rabbits on the Run OR Hopping Into Spring. It's really cute!

krislovesfabric said...

Rabbits Prefer Mayhem or Hares Just Wanna Have Fun would be my suggestions but maybe you should go with your own words...Eat More Eggs?

Debi said...

Bunnies on the Loose....the quilt is adorable.

Marie said...

Your quilt is stunning and so much work, whatever you decide to call it, I'm sure the name will be fitting.
To me, it looks like a Hare Parade!

trains, planes, and bunnymobiles ... or lapins sur la fissure ... or sungura kwenye ufa (swahili) ... or lapen sou krak (french creole - now THEY know how to cook a prairie chicken) ... or hopped up ... or hare-y chicks ... or quick like a bunny

p.s. - a wise man once told me to never date a man whose friends call him "Rabbit"

Ulla's Quilt World said...

Karin said...

how about ''rabbits prefer caffeine'' LOL Chocolate does have caffeine in it I hear :) I *LOVE* Redwork Renaissance - I am making a MBS project with it :)

Lynda said...

somehow tie in to the modes of transportation - Bunnies on vacation, Bunnies on the Move, Bunnies just want to have fun..... Mr Bunny's Travels is what I would pick.

Paulette Doyle said...

"Hare today...gone tomorrow!!" "All in a Day at the Chocolate Factory", "Hare You Come", "Bunnies Gone Funnies" "On A Chocolate High" "Hares for the Holidays" and my favourite "A Bad Hare Day"
Take care!
Paulette

Janet said...

Wow, you're getting some great name ideas!

All I can think of is from Alice in Wonderland .... (No time to say hello, goodbye) "I'm late I'm late I'm late"

PhoebeP said...

How about Rabbits Take a Trip? They're all speeding off somewhere, and this title gives just a suggestion of other substances helping them on their way!

dianne said...

Miss Jean's "Rabbit Transit" is very, very good!

JenniferSylvie said...

The Bunny Brigade

Love the quilt, such a fun pattern, especially with your adjustments.

Jan said...

They look like they are having so much fun, so I would maybe go with "Bunny Fun". I had a rabbit named Phoebe for over ten years. She had a nice, long life for a bunny.

Kim, How about Rapid Rabbit Revue.Looks like a great quilt. MaryJane

Josie McRazie said...

How many blocks? I forget twelve? Well I say "Twelve reasons NOT to feed a Rabbit Chocolate"
(or ten I forget but you get the jist!) You have some very clever readers! I do like several of the suggestions!

Frog Quilter said...

Rabbit Adventures.

Sandy said...

"Bunnies À la carte" I thought this name helped tie in the fact that you changed each block to suit your taste :)

Theresa said...

I love this quilt~~~~ You are getting some really cool names!!! "Bunny's Rush Hour" is what came to my mind... Can't wait to see what you've decide!!!!

Laura K said...

How about "Late for the Easter Parade"? They just look like they are in a hurry to get somewhere! This quilt just makes me smile. Thank you for the chance to win.

piece peace said...

I keep thinking of, "Bunnies Gone Wild". Regardless of the name, I love this quilt. There is so much personality.

Stevens Family said...

I LOVE this quilt! Everything about it is amazing! I would love to know how you did a scallop border and then the square border - love it!
I'm thinking "rabbits just wanna' have fun"

Mimi said...

This is such an amazing and creative quilt!! How about "Crazy Hare Days"?

Kristi said...

I'm thinking "Hare Raising Fun!" ...looks like they are having a blast to me!

GrammyK said...

How about "Those wild, wacky wabbits"?

Love redwork renaissance-would love to win the charm pack.

BTW-your quilt is beautiful! So great you put your own spin on it!

Quilting_Chris said...

Love your take on this quilt. How about "wild hare daze". Your applique inspires me to try it. Thanks for a chance to win. Darling quilt.

LJ said...

"Chocolate Bunnies Will Travel" is my suggestion. Looks like you'll have this done for Easter- wonderful!

Lynne in Hawaii said...

Rabbits Rock!
Rushin' Rabbits!
Speeding Rabbits!
Since you won't use Crack Rabbits... Rabbits on speed.

Too funny. Your version is so creative. How do you do it?

scottylover said...

Okay, I know it has probably already been offered, but how about "Those Wrascally Wabbits"? You know, like Elmer Fudd says? LOL

Love your additions/changes/updates! :)

Gwen said...

Love this quilt-- it's super cute!! Every name I kept thinking of was already entered... so I guess I'll go with "Hippity- Hoppity Friends". :-)

Hi Kim,
Love your blog. My suggestion for a name:
hares gone haywire
Terry

Penny said...

I beginning to think a robot might be smarter than me deciphering the double words now in trying to post comment & wonder if others have such difficulties? Any way I think this is such a wonderful & fun quilt! I think you might name it, Rockin Rabbits!!

Ila in SoDak said...

Ooh, Rabbits Rock ON!!

Diane E W said...

Love the hippie bus, brings back old memories. How about "Hippie Hares on the Move" or "Hares to the free and wild" or "Traveling Hippie Hares" Wait, Wait I thought of another..Hares to the 60's. This is too much fun or maybe I've just been up too long. Thanks for the fun.

Jen said...

"Hare We Go"! or "Hare Salon"
Great work, Kim! It's beautiful.

quiltmom said...

I think "Hopin Transport Co." would be a great name. All kinds of transportation is on this quilt.

'wow' your quilt is turning out beautiful. Names are so hard to choose. I thought of Wraskley Wrabbit Elmer Fudd style. Good luck with the name.
