Gaynor has made a lovely job of this Bunny Hill pattern called "Rabbits Prefer Chocolate". This will make a lovely addition to Gaynor's Easter display.
I remember assisting Gaynor last year at the shop to choose fabrics for this delightful quilt.
Ok enough talking, here's what you came for, the quilting!
Quilting over cotton batting, using a mix of Gunold, Madeira poly neon & glide threads. Some echoing, swirls, pebbles & even some hearts & flowers.
|see the tulip I quilted?|
A view of the back. For the border I quilted piano keys, if you missed how I did this see my previous post here.
So if you think Rabbits only ate grass, think again!!
Below is a gathering of gifts made & shared at a stitching group I belong to. A rather late Christmas swap & shared dinner. Another couple of months & we could have called it a 'mid winter Christmas'!!
Some gorgeous gifts received & given!
Below, a collage of what I made my swap friend. A pincushion made from one wooden coffee mug stand, one cake tin, wool felt & embellishments.
Fun time with paint, glue & of course the needle! But the best part, the giving!!!!
My gift was special, because my swap pal, really was listening one day when I mentioned in passing I would like to try the Bohin marking pens. My pal, then got her daughter living in London to send for these french designed pens. Also in my parcel a beautifully made wool felt needle case......thank you 'pal', you know who you are!
On a flying visit south, I visited my friend Julie & her lovely shop Threadbear Cottage. Look who wanted to come home with me?' Jack Cat! He is a heafty fellow that holds my door open when needed. Julie made his body with an old grey army blanket........love him! he should be cheap to keep too & hopefully won't go back to the old house!
The postie is back with another quilt, so back to it! Until next time, take care.
