I probably made this about 10 years ago but forgot to make a label!!!
It started with paper pieced bunnies, the idea of doing 3-D ears, decorating their Easter dresses, making paper pieced tulips, and using some favorite purple garden flower fabric to create a kind of clearing for the dance. Click on images to make them larger to see details.

It's a bit crumpled since it's been folded up for years but it is bringing a happy look to our family room this month.
I've been obsessed with this little quilt all week, happily making block after block including blue scraps for RSC this month!
|just a peek !|
I printed them 3" which finishes at 2.5" and it takes four to make a star. You have to color in the stars before you start or you'll not know what color to piece in where.
At first I made 20 blocks and asked Joy should I make more....she laughed and asked if I might make it king sized! I said, "stop me if I go that way!" but at the moment there are 54 blocks and measures about 15" X 23"
I might stop here and make it into this month's table runner... more pics later. Right now I am choosing borders.
I thought I might be able to close the black and white scrap bin easier but somehow they all take a deep breath when it's opened, and expand. Then I thought, well right now the pieced center is about the size of a half yard of fabric... that doesn't take up that much space. I actually had to throw away a lot of trimmings too though... it was fun to use so many black and white scraps.
I finished one book on audio while sewing this week (The Garden of Promises and Lies) and started another (Word to the Wise) and can't wait to get back in studio to sew some more.
I am also taking a free course on art quilting and stitching through TextileArtist and one on painting through sketchbook Revival.
