|"Pink Rain and Chocolate Rabbits" (30" square)|
By Sherrie Spangler
I finished Karen Musgrave's challenge quilt, and here it is! You can see photos of the other quilts at Karen's blog:
My quilt, "Pink Rain and Chocolate Rabbits," is a garden patch that's home to chocolate rabbits who feast at the Hershey Kisses foil wrapper spots in the garden. (More details on that in this post http://sherriequilt.blogspot.com/2012/02/chocolate-bunny-quilt.html)
This one (above) escaped through a tiny gap that I left in the hot pink fence.
Here's the gap in the photo below, left side. Actually, there's a gap because I didn't feel like turning corners anymore with the binding strips. That's one of the Hershey Kisses wrappers in the bottom half.
This was a really fun challenge, which began with vintage curtain fabric provided by Karen. You can see four pieces of it in this last photo. I overpainted some of mine and dipped some in strong tea. We had to include this fabric and use techniques from Rayna Gillman's new book, "Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts."
Have a colorful day
