I’m so glad you are here and welcome to my blog stop for 100 Blocks Volume 15!
My block is #1401 and it is called Bunny Love! I made this block using a fusible applique technique. I LOVE fusible applique! It’s so easy and fun.
Here is the block…
Do you ever wonder where people get their inspiration from when they are designing a block or a quilt? I wonder all the time but for me, the inspiration came from our two adorable Lionhead bunnies. Meet Nala and Daisy…
These two cuties bring sunshine into our lives every day. I never thought I’d be a bunny person until they came home from the 4H Fair with us. We brought Nala home two years ago (she’s on the left) and Daisy, one year ago. Daisy is actually partially blind but she gets around our living room just fine. We had never seen bunnies that looked like this before and right away, they stole our hearts.
When I was thinking about a design to submit, the bunnies came right to mind. Here are a few pictures of the process I use when creating a block.
First I like to sort through my stash and figure out which colors will go best for my design…
I use paper backed fusible web to trace the pattern and then fuse it to my fabrics…
I arrange the fabric pieces in a way I find pleasing and then I fuse them to the background…
A favorite way of mine to secure the edges of the applique to the background is to use the blanket stitch. I adore the blanket stitch!!
I hope you’ll get a chance to make this block! It’s a fun one and would be great as a pillow, tote, or kid’s quilt!
I have a copy of QuiltMaker’s 100 Blocks to give away to one lucky winner. I’ll choose a name randomly from the comment section once the blog tour is over. Just tell me your favorite method of applique and if you’d like to, please follow me on Facebook or Instagram. My Instagram is @quiltcabana.
