I’m so pleased to finally show you ‘The Bunny Bunch’ quilt! This pattern was tested and ready to go in March and then Covid-19 happened. In this household that meant three children and a husband all working from home. Life was kind of hectic and then on 1st July, this arrived;
Meet Otto, our sweet little cocker spaniel. He’s now coming five months and he has charmed us all. With everything else going on, this pattern release has been very delayed but here it is, at last!
‘The Bunny Bunch’ pattern makes a quilt large enough to be used as a cot quilt or as a nursery wall hanging.
The large blocks are 12″ (wide) x 14″ (high) and the small blocks are 12″ (wide) x 10″ (high).
If you don’t have time for a full quilt, you could use your favourite block as the centre of a pillow. Or you could make a three block table topper, just perfect for Easter!
I enjoyed making each rabbit unique. The nine page pattern contains full-size applique templates for the rabbits, carrots and details like the flower you can see above. There is a left-facing rabbit, a right-facing rabbit, a lop-eared rabbit and a rabbit with patches. It also includes templates and instructions on stitching in the whiskers.
I used some leftover Moda grunge precuts from a layer cake and a jelly roll for the block background and borders. I am a bit in love with the grunge range of fabrics! The rabbits themselves were made with scraps from my stash and the quilt came together quickly with fast machine applique.
I quilted wonky borders around the rabbit to fit in with the whimsical theme and used a few more jelly roll strips to make a scrappy binding.
The finished quilt has now been gifted to our niece and her husband who welcomed their first baby just at the start of lockdown. You might remember the little quilt I made for their Wexford wedding.
