Down and Dirty

With only four (FOUR!) days left until Easter, I knew I'd need to take a couple of shortcuts to finish the Easter Toss quilt before the big day.  Will I finish, though?  That's far from certain, but what I'm doing to hurry things along is something I've done a time or two in the past, and it seems to work out okay.  Instead of hand appliqueing the corner bunnies, I've prepped the pieces and glued them in place; now I'll stitch them down by machine as part of the quilting.

Tonight I finished prepping the bunnies and pinned the quilt.  I also have the Juki out and cleaned, the thread picked out to match the quilt, and I'm ready to start quilting tomorrow night.

And for those of you who are curious about the pattern for the bunny, I started with the one I designed for the Spring! quilt pattern, redrew him a bit smaller to fit the corners, and adjusted the legs and ears, also to fit the space better.

If I can get the quilting done Wednesday and Thursday nights, I'll have Saturday to sew on the binding and anything else that needs to be finished.  Wish me luck!

I had pictured your Hannah bunnies standing inside the border. What a great surprise! I love them! Florence

Sounds to me like you're on a roll. It's absolutely adorable. I think you'll get it done.

Woo Weee! I love that! Those bunnies are way better than my Easter project. Hubby said mine look naked and compared to yours, they sure do. Beautiful!

Your bunnies, eggs and tulips look great, I love the turquoise ribbon you did. I think turquoise is a great neutral and we should use it more.

Happy Easter!
