Sweet Dreams ........

I have just finished this little baby quilt for my 'great niece' due in July....

...a charm pack of "Putting on The Ritz" by Bunnyhill designs was perfect ....

I'm a first time 'great aunt'.... I wonder if that will be changed to 'graunt'.... or 'grunt'.... and Hubz can be 'gruncle'....  hmmmmm


I used a template from Michelle's book "Briarside Lane" for the bunnies
(love, love Michelle's designs... I made her Harrington and Hannah BOM last year and can't wait for her next new book)

(the bunnies show up better in real life than they do in the picture)

and some lettering from my pattern stash (have no idea where these are from originally!!)


the bunnies were just perfect with their long ears as they bound across the quilt...


Feathers and wriggly lines for the quilting...


the backing is like a double thickness flannellette - I also used a cotton wadding so it is really cuddly and warm....


my little residential doll modelled for me....


Righto, Gotto Go... posting this off ...... safe travels baby quilt .....
