I will be gone most of tomorrow, so I decided to do my Easter post tonight. I will get to spend the day with my grandbabies tomorrow, so I am quite excited. Back in Feb. I accepted a Peter Rabbit Challenge. Milah mailed Peter Rabbit panels to 4 of us and kept one for herself. She asked each of us to create a baby quilt and post it on our blog on Easter. I completed mine this week, but haven't had a chance to wash it yet, so please excuse any quilting lines you may see. LOL It turned out about 38" by 50". I chose a very simple way to put it together. Basically, a log cabin design, 3 blocks across by 4 blocks down. Here is the whole quilt. It is hard to get a picture of a whole quilt. I hope some day to have a design wall.
This panel was intended to be a book. There were only 11 pictures to use. I either had to not use one or add one. I decided to make the appliqued carrot for my 12th block. Now that I see the picture, it kind of sticks out like a sore thumb, but it is done and it is staying. (grin). Here are several more pictures of it.
I really debated with myself on how to quilt it. I almost machine quilted it with a crosshatch using my walking foot. Then I decided I'd better stick with hand quilting. I am not really good with machine quilting and don't even enjoy it much. I do enjoy hand quilting. (grin) So I quilted in the ditch around the center pictures and each log. Then I quilted around each main character/thing in each block. Here is a picture of the back, although you can't see much because I used such a busy backing.
Now that you have looked at so many of my pictures of Peter Rabbit, I am sure you would like to see the other beautiful creations in this challenge. So tomorrow, go to the following blogs and check out their designs: Milah, Bren, Christine, and Lori. I am sure we will have some interesting Peter Rabbits around. (grin)
As I said, I will be gone most of the day tomorrow, so the computer will probably not even get turned on till really late. So Milah, I hope you understand me posting a couple of hours early. I hope everyone has a HAPPY EASTER! If you are traveling, stay safe. I am sure I will have lots of grandkid pictures to post next week. (If I don't forget my camera again.) Thank you for visiting and please come again.
