Wabbit Daze
(beware ---- long post)

Darlene is busy taking care of all the curve balls and feels that she needs to take a blogging break - well, we can't let her blog just sit.

B-O-R-I-N-G

We can't just let this blog sit - let's find a project for her to work on - we must show the world - come on, Joy, hold the blocks; no, you hold them; she's not going to be happy with us; does "Wabbit Stew" ring a bell with anyone; who's going to protect us from her (maybe her sweet hubby - he likes us, doesn't he?). Oh my goodness, I can't believe we're doing this - we're going to be in so much trouble - SIGH!!!!! Whose idea is this any way????

I was reading her e-mails last night and she's committed on Charming Girls Quilt Club Blog to finishing an older UFO so let's put this one out and "commit" her to finishing it. teehee! Let's make this official - snicker -

Darlene is going to finish "1930's Black & White" by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet by the end of July

It's really a cute project and I remember when she started it.

Oh my goodness she has to finish this project; it's really, really cute; and remember when she searched high and low for this pattern. Let's share the story (as we remember it)

This pattern is "1930's Black & White" by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet. Darlene saw a picture of the quilt on somone's webshots album and couldn't get a response from the owner of the album. She knew it was by Lori Holt but had no other information, so she Googled Lori's name and found that a quilt shop in Utah might carry the pattern. Excitedly she called and was told that they carried other patterns by Lori Holt but not this particular one but would get it for Darlene. Darlene waited several days - NOTHING! I think she called Lori at home and found that Material Girls might carry the pattern so she called Nadine - - POOF in a matter of days Darlene had the pattern in her possession. She was a very happy girl and started searching for the fabric (especially the black and white prints) and made the black and white nine patches in no time (quick like a bunny - teehee). Then she started working on the blocks but needed a good variety of 1930's solids - ordered those from someone on the web - made four blocks and then the project sat. Huge Sigh!!!!

We're going to put the project box by her sewing machine and hopefully she'll take our BIG hint! LOL I think she'll be so excited, she'll forget about our antics and get busy sewing. LOL

Please join us - The Wabbit Daze gang - in cheering Darlene on to finish this project by the end of July!!! Darlene finished quilting one of her flimsies earlier this week and if we can load it in our wagon, spread it out and take a picture we'll be back to share with you vewy, vewy soon ---------------

So, leave us a comment to cheer Darlene on to finish her "1930's Black & White" project and we'll toss you name in a drawing and send you a little something. teehee!!!!

Remember.........
Naughty can be nice

The Wabbit Gang is just darling and I wish I had one of my own to post the blog when I don't! You are one lucky gal, Darlene, to have them. I adore that quilt - not normally one for 30's repros but it's cute, none-the-less. You really DO need to finish it!

Such a cute and creative post, but such naughty wabbits. Stunning blocks, I can see why your little wabbits want to see this one finished. Hope those curve balls are starting to steer a straight course for you. Big hugs.

Kaaren said...

Okay Wabbit Gang. Of course Darlene will finish the B & W quilt. Just make sure you stay out of her way, don't pester her for carrots and make sure you tidy up after her when she gets up for a break. Knowing Darlene, she'll reward you when the last stitch is sewn.

Quilt Hollow said...

Ooooooooo you wabbits gonna get in SEW much trouble! Darlene told us about some curve balls and now this! You go tell little Ms. Speedy that the Hollow has never seen this particular pattern before. In the meantime, you behave; stay out of her hare (tee hee)and give her a hug from me!
