sew connected



Quilt block for Rita, 15.5" square (unfinished)
For the sew connected quilting group.

Rita included the sweetest little embroidered patch in the package with the fabrics for her block this month. I love that little bunny so much, I almost kept it for myself. (She gave us permission to do so.) But the little bunny makes the block, don't you think?

Thanks so much for all your name suggestions for the red and yellow strip quilt. I decided to name it autumn sunshine. Thank you to Katie and Katie!

you could photo copy the block. i have done that before for the pattern and it makes the pattern dark and tracable. then you could have on for yourself! hee hee

Rita said...

Thanks for a beautiful block! Love the rickrack trim and your beautiful use of color!

To all who like my embroidery, please don't copy and trace it. I will make the pattern available to everyone soon, thanks!
