 Bunnies & More

    
     Bunnies and More has two different styles of patterns, it's like two books in one. There are realistic looking rabbits that can be sewn from one big piece of fabric or adorned with mini quilt blocks, bows, cowboy hats, and bandanas. The other style is more light hearted, with rabbits in vehicles. They include bunnies in an airplane, a soapbox derby car, a parachute, a flying saucer, a tractor, and a sailboat. This book also has eleven different quilts to make from the detailed step-by-step instructions. Please see the quilt gallery link for photos of all the quilts.

Wholesalers -
check out the Raggedy Rabbit Pattern

     30 different rabbit patterns with an old-fashioned flair are included in this book plus numerous veggies. This was my first book. It was inspired by a stack of antique quilt blocks from the 1930's that I inherited from my Grandmother. While Grandma's quilt had the same bunny in each block, I choose to make mine all different.
     This book includes embroidery diagrams, directions for creating the eyes, and tips for your custom labels.
