Done! Well, sort of; except for all that quilting. But the top's finished--woo-hooo! Aren't borders kind of boring to add to an otherwise finished quilt top? I had a hard time getting myself to do it but I finally gave myself a talking to, sat down at the machine, and just got it over with.
I know the quilt looks a little wavy but it's just pinned up on a wall using three tacks--the final quilted quilt will be much nicer. I was really surprised how big this turned out. I rarely pay much attention to a quilt pattern's measurements unless I intend to use a quilt on my king-sized bed, so I had no idea until I tacked it up on the wall that it was as large as it is--most of the Bunny Hill patterns I've made have been nice, medium sized wall hangings.
Are you interested in "winning" my used pattern? Now that I'm done, it's time for a giveaway. Leave me a comment telling me what fabrics/colors you think you'd like to use in making your own version and I'll add you to the drawing. I'll pick a winner Friday night, which means that person will be announced on Saturday's post, so make sure you come back to see if it might be you! You'll need to claim it if you win--I won't come looking for you.
By the way, if you need a little color inspiration for dreaming up your own version, check out Anne Sutton's Bunny Tales blog post HERE. The green one is surprisingly attractive, I think! Well, I like them both a lot; of course; that's not what I mean. I'm just saying I'm surprised I find the green one as stunning as I do. I'll have to keep that in mind for a future project. And speaking of future projects, I guess I'll have to figure out tomorrow night what's next!
