Chocolate Bunnies


Easter is just around the corner.  I had been scolding myself for not making a spring quilt to hang.  My Mom showed me this beautiful quilt she had just finished and then said casually, "do you want it?"  Hmm...


Are you kidding me?  Of course I want it!!  The pattern is called, "Rabbits Prefer Chocolate" by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.   My Mom did a great job of piecing and applique.  The quilter really went to town on this one.


Such a treasure!  I had it up on the wall in about thirty seconds.  Didn't want to give her a chance to change her mind (insert smiley face).


The skies are so grey and dreary today.  It's hard to believe at times that spring is coming.  I'll have these little bunnies to remind me of the real ones I will be seeing soon.  Blessings!

With joy,

  7. I love it!! I have seen it on the Bunny Hill site, but I am still quilting my A Tisket A Tasket from there.
    Your Mom is so talented and you are blessed that she is so generous. It's perfect for Spring. Spring? What's that. Even here in Ca. we are still "dreary"
