Return of the plaid bunnies

I have a quilting deadline! I found out that there is a quilt show in September so I thought maybe I should finish up the plaid bunny quilt and enter it. Nothing like a deadline to get the fingers motivated.

Of course, if I were still living in Virginia, I wouldn't be able to be in the same room as this quilt. It has a wool batting and is exceedingly warm. Okay, HOT! This year, Portland's summer is like a Virginia spring...without the rain.

Meanwhile, Molly is continuing her child care duties watching from our balcony. She is such a pro, the children don't even know that their every move is closely monitored. During their play, someone started screaming and everyone else joined in. Buddy bolted from the room. Molly pointed her ears backward and looked ready to run. But the stream of young humanity was so fascinating, she sat riveted instead.

  3. You must be talking about the NW Quilting Expo. We'll be gone this year, so no entries for me. Molly is probably considering the best way to eat those children. I know that's what Smitty would be thinking about.

  4. It's good that Molly has found a productive new vocation. And definitely better that she's closely supervising children rather than plaid bunnies...

  6. I'm a newer "follower" to your blog. These plaid bunnies are adorable and remind me of the stuffed bunnies my aunt and I made one year when I was young. Sending warm wishes that you get this completed in time for your quilt show. --Andrea

  7. I just love your plaid bunnies. I used your pattern to make two small table toppers as Christmas gifts last year. Thank you sew much for all you share with us out here.
