Meet "Bucky"

Here's my new buddy, Bucky Bunny. (Pattern from Fat Cat Patterns, of course!) The designer, Sindy, calls him "Jumbo Bunny", but I named him after his prominent overbite. He looks like a cross between a bunny and a beaver.

Isn't he a hoot? I just had to make him, and then realized I don't have any fabric that would really work well for borders. I think I'll offer him as a center medallion for a round robin quilt for Project Linus on the Quilting Passion Forum. Hopefully, someone will want to make Bucky into a beautiful quilt and send him on his way to a deserving child.

Gee, I've been scattered in my quilting this week! I've started four new projects--pretty silly when I have so many UFOs.

Today I also made 48 large half square triangles (brights with black) to make a quilt for an orphanage in India that we are sponsoring on the Quilting Passion Forum. As I was trimming them to size, I accumulated quite a little pile of colorful trimmings. I've decided to save little trimmings until spring, and then set them out for the birds to use in their nests. Hopefully, I'll see some woven into little nests and can post pictures of them later.

Bucky is sooooo cute (and funny too!). I wish I had some of your applique skills. You just seem to churn that applique out!

Thank you, ladies! Yes, I am always "churning" that applique! There are so many things I want to do, and lately I've been starting them all at once.

Adorable bunny, I must visit Sindy's website more often. You always do outstanding work!
