I know I am a little late for Easter and Rabbits; but this is how Peter Rabbit spends his time after Easter. He is busy tending his Garden. All this fabric came from the special lady I wrote about in an earlier post. I had started this quilt some time ago and thought I needed to bring it across the finish line.
were four pre-printed blocks; two of each design. I made a nine patch
design using the blue blocks along with the bunny blocks. Then I added
the yellow borders and the four corner blocks. On this block you can see Peter tending to his carrots.
also used some batting that was given to me. It is polyester and quite
thick. I have found it hard to make the quilt lie flat and square. I
washed the quilt and even ironed it; which helped it a little. I do
prefer cotton batting. Here is the second design of Peter Rabbit. Here it appears Peter is growing some greens to go along with his carrots. Such a healthy diet.
This would be a fun quilt to put outside under a
covered patio. A nice decoration to look at while we might sit and sip a glass of lemon water or iced tea; after working our own gardens.
Most of the quilt has been hand
quilted; but I did feel like I needed to add some machine quilting as
well. Mostly just outlining.
used stencils and then added the circles in the corners of the blue blocks; just trying
to fill the whole quilt up with stitching. The quilt is approximately 36
inches square. There is a mixture of fabrics; not all cotton. This was a fun quilt to put together and will be enjoyed each Spring Time.
