Bloggerfest

Others in the Blogger Fest can be found at Amy's Creative SideSo here I am trying something new, again.  I really don't know if I'm doing this right, but I'm trying.  Here's the quilt I'd like to show...

Well, talk about learning things on a quilt.  I made this one from patterns found on the Internet.  Had to be bunnies for a Greatgrand Niece who's Mom and Grandmom are bunny raisers and they show prize winning bunnies, too.  So for the new baby the quilt had to have bunnies.  These are paper pieced, and the second batch I made for this quilt, since the first batch were turned pink buy the backing.  I'd never made a quilt with white before, and didn't know the backing would "bleed" through. I tried to paint the bunnies, but ICK.  That just looked more awful.  So I started over.  I covered over the white bunnies on the back with added white fabric squares before I quilted.  My Grandniece was very pleased with the results.  Here is the carrot pocket I made for the back of the quilt.  The whole quilt is quilted with carrot shapes.  I like a little humor in my blankies.

So that's it for today. I still need to figure out how to get it onto the linky party... I'm at the bottom of this learning curve.  
Have a wonderful weekend. I'm going to Project Linus Open House.  There was a challenge to make a pastel quilt, and I entered. (My entry is on a previous post.) Tomorrow I get to see how I stack up.
Love you all, and thanks for your patience. I scanned in these photos, and whenever I do that Blogger puts a really big light blue area around the picture... it won't go any bigger.  We'll see how it turns out, won't we.
Love to you all - especially my followers... I am prejudiced, you see.

  1. I have problems with white fabrics bleeding through. Tried to compensate for problem by buying what I think is a thick white cotton with a bit of a print texture of white on white. So far So far, only used it on pillow trim. Glad you wrote this post at this time. I need to think of something to do about all those white squares in the current ufo I'm working on. Those white squares are amthin cotton. Rats!
