Bunny Update, Piecing and Stuff

Here are 7 of the blocks from my Rabbits Prefer Chocolate hand appliqué project. Obviously there are still some finishing touches I need to do to most of the blocks i.e. laces, ribbons, buttons, etc. I have 4 more blocks to do – I managed to prep all the appliqué pieces while at my mom’s but now I need to sew the background blocks together and then glue the pieces down for hand sewing. By the way, Rabbits Prefer Chocolate is by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs - I'm a HUGE fan of her things.

I haven’t done any real piecing on my sewing machine since I made the quilt for Nadine (it's a terrible picture, I threw it on the floor long enough to get a picture before I boxed it up to ship. I'm sorry) You might recall the slump I experienced for a few months. Well, I have the urge to do some machine piecing. (whispered woohoo so I don’t want to break the spell – LOL). I don’t know what I want to work on but I have been thinking about it. HMMMM what to do, what to do??????

I didn't get to do much sewing while at my Mom's as it was more important for her to sew and relieve some stress. She was having a great time pulling out planned projects, patterns, fabric for show and tell, etc. LOL I had fun just watching her share with me!


Whew - this morning I spent time visiting and leaving a "Hi" comment on every blog in the Stash Quilts Ring; sadly I've never done that before. What an incredible and talented group of women - I'm in awe!

Thanks for the welcome, Darlene. Nadine's quilt looks great, especially when I clicked on it and made it bigger. The bunnies are delicious!

Cynthia said...

those bunnie blocks are lovely Darlene.

I'm so glad your quilting slump has gone. I love to see the projects you work on.

Sweet P said...

The bunny blocks are great.

It sounds like your mom needed some mom-daughter time to help her deal with whatever was going on. And maybe being with her helped you get out of your slump.

Patti said...

It's good to have you back home - we missed you! Your applique is looking so great! And I told you that if you were patient your urge to piece would come back - it always seems to eventually.

Nadine said...

Oh, Darlene, you did such a GREAT job with your cute bunnies ! Bravo ! Hmmmmm, wonder what project is coming from your "machine piecing revival" ??? We'd better prepare ourselves ! This is going to be STUNNING !

Biiiiig hugs & smiles, dear !
NADINE.

PS : look at MY quilt ! Ain't that the prettiest quilt in the world ? My fingertips are burning to handquilt it.... Won't be long, now....

Those bunnies are just the cutest -- I still favor the one with the plaid ear *s* I'm so glad to hear you are itching to get to your sewing machine and anxious to see what you plan to make *s*

The bunnies are so cute. I love the back ground fabrics that you used. Going around the blog ring does take awhile. Can't wait to see the bunnie quilt top finnished.
