Bunny and Turtle Race

If I counted correctly, this is the last of the standing bunnies I need to finish the rainbow bunny quilt. Tomorrow I will try and lay them out again on the design wall...Molly willing. And lately Molly prefers being a lap cat to a design wall runner. In either case, I don't get much sewing done.

 And here is a turtle pattern I am experimenting with.

And I hope you haven't missed the amazing spool quilts lately. Kathy at Kathy's Quilts (also known for Slow Stitching Sundays) is assembling her beautiful rainbow spools. She definitely weakened my resolve. And then Cathy at Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilts put me over the edge with her amazing quilt top. So although my name is not K(C)-athy, I did make a couple of spools. The red spool uses an inch grid and finishes at 3 inches square. The spotted spool is based on a 3/4 inch grid and finishes at 2.25 inches. I can't yet commit to either size yet and may make both sizes for a while and see if I develop a preference.


  1. Love all your blocks! Super cute turtle! I love those spool quilts too. I think I'm going to start making spool blocks.

  2. Your bunnies are so much fun. I bookmarked the tutorial, but haven't been able to get to them yet. And the turtle! I love it. Maybe Molly knows Christmas is coming and she's trying to be on her best behavior.

  3. Ooooo! A tortoise and the hare quilt? (You might have to bring back some bounding bunnies...)
    The C(K)athies are sucking me into that spool rabbithole, too. I'm thinking the 3" size, but your itty bitties are looking awfully good now, too!
