Here’s a cute and cuddly fun little bunny to make! I found the panel of fabric in my mother-in-laws very old stash. I’m guessing it’s probably 30+ years old. LOL So I decided to make it on a really old sewing machine! I bought myself a little Willcox & Gibbs hand crank chain stitch machine to celebrate a great year – and thought this would be the perfect “first project” to test it out. What a great success! The machine worked fantastic and the bunny is adorable (as I guessed it would be before I cut it out) – so I scanned in the pieces and made a PDF pattern to share. So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you! Here is the tutorial and the free PDF pattern – just click on the links and HAVE FUN WITH THIS! I can see it made from plaid flannel or printed fleece or what about minky?! There’s no end to how cute and cuddly this bunny can be. 😉
This is a super easy way to use up your scraps and end up with a reversible already quilted project when you are done! Learn how to “Quilt As You Go!” Keep bags of pre-cut scraps handy for when you want to spend 5 minutes putting together a block. You will need some 3 1/2″ squares in pairs, some single 5″ squares, some 1 3/4″ strips (at least 4″ long) and sashing strips cut at 1 3/4″ and also at 1 1/8″ in the color of your choice. Most people go with black or white because if you run out before you are done, it’s easy to match when purchasing more. Have fun!
A very quick look at paper piecing a block. Just a “stepping stone” to an entire quilt. Three blocks together make a unit – 12 units make the center of the quilt. Add a boarder and you are done! All you need is the paper pattern, rotary cutter, add a 1/4″ ruler, plastic template, fabric glue, an iron and of course your sewing machine. This pattern is available at QuiltWorx.com – it’s called Stepping Stones! Have fun!
