Cindy reporting in from Ohio.
Sister Sue was visiting me from Florida this past week and we fell in love with Sandy’s Bunny Crunch Mini Quilt…(pattern found HERE) I decided to make one for Sue so we started searching for fabrics.
pawing through interviewing fabric scraps and Sue was drawn to my fat quarter of Living Coral, the Pantone Color of the Year. These fabrics look Florida-esque , don’t you think?
Once Sue had her fabrics picked out, I got to work on the paper piecing. Sandy’s pattern is so easy to follow and I made a few notes on the papers to remind me of what colors go where. My seam ripper was a big help in removing the papers from the seams.
Bunny Crunch in corals and greens makes me think of spring! My dear friend (DF) MJ, gave the peach/pinch check fabric to me…isn’t it perfect for a carrot?
I like the variations in the lime green fabrics. I think they add interest to the carrots that have been crunched by Mr. Bunny.
Below is the Florida version of Bunny Crunch. It has traveled safely to 80 degree weather and I’m really not jealous or anything…even though we are expecting 20 degrees for a high this coming weekend…brrrr! Spring where are you? The groundhog said you would be here soon!
If you are new to paper piecing, give this pattern a try! It’s a great way to start your paper piecing journey.
