Feeling The Warmth of Spring Time!!

I finally took the last stitch on the binding of my walking rabbit quilt top that Karen gifted me. I hope you can see that I also added rick rack trim under the binding along with some ladybug buttons in the grass, a bead on the eye and also button on his collar. My son said I should add an elbow patch. Karen had stitched all the wool work and I already had it quilted before my son's suggestion. I guess I could add the elbow patch now and it wouldn't matter on the back since it is a wall hanging. But done is done!

Our trees are in full bloom, the warmth in the air devine and I feel great! Woo Hoo!!

He's adorable! Actually more dapper and handsome than adorable. :-)

Annie said...

I agree, what a handsome rabbit. I just love it!


Liv Nora said...

I just love this rabbit !!

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

LOVE your rabbit! The wools you used are wonderful.

Karen said...

Your additions to the rabbit piece make it very special. A patch can be added to the sleeve without having stitching showing on the back. But as you said, done is done.

Cyndi said...

That rabbit is AWESOME! Karen did a beautiful job stitching him, and you, of course, added all the wonderful finishing touches. That would be one that I'd be tempted to keep up all the time!

Glad your weather is nice today. The sun is shining here, but it's 36 degrees right now. Pooh! Enjoy your weekend, my friend.

He's sweet Mary :) Perfect for you house for spring!

So happy that you are feeling great Mary!
Your Walking Rabbit is adorable. Hope to get that backing in the mail next week.
We're suppose to have 59 degrees today, so maybe some of the snow and ice on the sidewalk will melt. No one shoveled and its about eight inches thick!!

Rita said...

What a sweet quilt! Glad you're feeling great!

How cute! Had any luck on selling the house yet? It's actually supposed to be in the mid-70's this next week in the midwest.

Gerri said...

Mary, the rabbit is adorable. I am soooo happy you feel good. Enjoy your beautiful spring day!

Carol said...

I love your bunny wall hanging, good idea to add the ladybug buttons.

Such a lovely way to welcome spring. He's quite the little rabbit gentleman.
Happy, Hoppy Spring.

Kaaren said...

Ah, Mary...I can hardly stand it! Another lovely to tease me with.

If you add an elbow patch, you don;t have to stitch it through to the backing fabric. Just grab the wool fabric on the sleeve. Easy-peasy.

Send it to me and I'll do it for you!

Isn't he wonderful. He looks as though he knows exactly where he is marching off to, and nothing and no-one will stop him.

Kathie said...

this is so cute!
love the idea of a patch on the elbow
would be easy to applique you don't need to go thru the whole quilt just the first layer.
you can do it ;) glad your feeling better, ah yes I am ready for flowers to start blooming

Cheryl said...

Yeah, spring time!

Terry said...
