Yes, I'm still hand quilting plaid bunnies. There are 55 of them. It is definitely slow going, except in my brain where I think and hope I'm making faster progress than I am. Perfect foreshadowing of a missed deadline, eh? In any case, my hands are slow so I am joining Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday (and everyone, just please ignore my brain. Thank you.)
To make the bunny seem like a plush stuffed bunny, I'm giving it a bulbous outline shape. Rather than mark the various plaid fabrics, I'm using a nonwoven light interfacing as a guide.
Given its a bulbous shape, there is no reason to be exacting. Yet here I am using straight pins to hold down the edge as I carefully stitch around a blob-like amorphous shape.
After the bulbous outline, each bunny gets details on the ear, arm, eye and tail. Just enough quilting to keep the bunny from being carried away.
