Pudgy Bunnies

Well, now, have you ever seen a cuter pattern? I think not! Last week I was feeling the "itch to ditch" the snowmen decor. And to replace those frosty guys with chicks and bunnies and other promises of Spring. And what should I happen upon? Karen of
Sew Primitive's adorable Feedsack Bunnies pattern. Well, I immediately ordered it and it arrived Saturday afternoon (great service, BTW). I couldn't wait to dive into bunny love!!! I'm calling my version Pudgy Bunnies ('cuz that's how we're feeling around here after Valentine weekend).
Rocky, of course, was extremely helpful in the pinbasting department. He can hold those quilt sandwiches down with the best of 'em! And here's the quiltlet ready for handtacking the binding and hanging sleeve. I am purposely saving that handwork to do at my Thursday mini-group meeting.

Here's Block 2 of the Kansas City Star 2009 BOM. See that little gadget up in the right-hand corner? Another one of those must-haves in the sewing room. It's a Clover binding-making-thingamajig. I have those in several sizes--this one makes 1/4 " binding for stems and vines. Phenomenol invention.
This morning is haircut and color touch-up time so better head off to get dressed. Oh, and before that, I'm heading to the basement to haul up those boxes of bunnies and chicks and birdies, oh my.

Your chubbie bunnies are adorable, or is their bloomers that makes them look chubby. I would love to do the KC Star block, looks great.

I like the color combinations you are using for Karen's bunnies. Maybe I could learn to quilt after all...I have six cats. Do you think that's an advantage?

I would like to schedule my iphone to mute or go silent during sleeping hours so that notifications don't wake me up. I still need calls to come through in case of an emergency and I still need the alarm clock to work so I'm not late for work. Is there any way to do this? Maybe an app that I just can't find.
