Frosted Bunnies

 Here's a quilt that I've been waiting to share with you.  This one is called, "The Adventures of Harrington and Hannah" and is a pattern that Michelle of The Raspberry Rabbits designed and offers  FREE on her website.  In fact, I was just there this morning and see that she has a few kits left so HOP on over there!
 Michelle pretty much left the quilting up to me as she wanted to be surprised.  Because her quilt had little hearts here and there throughout the quilt and I know just how much she loves her bunnies I just had to toss in some fun background fill with hearts and bunny ears.  Then kept the sashing simple with cross hatching.
What a difference the quilting aka frosting makes to a quilt!  Marcie at Patchalot Patterns is the first person I quilted for to ever call my quilting the frosting and that word just sort of stuck with me.

Please while your here will you follow me through BLOGLOVIN with a simple click of the button on the top right of my side bar.  Thank you!

Vivian said...

It's indeed a beauty--the piecing, the design and your quilting. Do you quilt with a smile on your face? I bet you do. The quilting suggests a happy quilter, focused, relaxed, and lovin' what she's doing.

SWEETNESS, and you're right... frosting is the perfect descriptive word! Your quilting is the BEST!

Beautiful. I had started printing the pattern and then, got busy and forgot about the rest of them. That was a mistake.
