Bunny Quilt

A long time ago I started on a quilt and finished the top. (I posted about it 3 years ago, to be precise.) I was still learning about quilting and didn't understand the concept of lining up the blocks as well as I do now. Then of course, how to finish it overwhelmed me. Tie it, get a little more fancy, or just stitch along the lines? Of course, I didn't have backing fabric so it sat in the closet for a while. Then, last year, one of my cousins had a baby boy and named him Jack. I couldn't think of a more perfect boy to get this quilt. A rabbit quilt for Jack, get it? OK, maybe I'm the only one that thinks that is funny, but I just couldn't help it. Anyhow, I FINALLY finished it!

Bunny Luv Quilt

Here is the finished quilt. It uses Maywood Studios Bunny Luv Flannel by Woolies Light. I had bought a whole bunch of miscut scraps of this fabric by weight, so it was REALLY cheap and I managed to make the entire quilt top from it. (Except I skipped the last border.) I found backing fabric to match in a local quilt shop. I still have a ton of this fabric so I'm thinking about making another one, or making a different quilt from it. We'll see.

I couldn't find the pattern in my box to tell you which pattern it was. If I find it I'll post it later. I chose to stitch the large block lines only. It was also easy to do - I used spray adhesive to get the back and front to stick to the batting and that helped keep it from shifting while I sewed.
