Flopsie Bunny

We sure have been enjoying the spring weather here in Minnesota. I have spring fever so bad and have taken the time to check out my perennial gardens even though it's way too early for me to uncover anything. Since I can't be outside yet playing in the garden, I have been designing some springtime designs to applique. I have another fun one for spring or Easter.... Flopsie Bunny. 
To make the design, first trace out all of the pieces onto the heat n bond fusible interfacing. (Or what ever brand you like to use) Iron it onto your fabric. Cut all of the shapes out. I did two sets of everything since I'm working on a couple of projects.

Arrange you pieces on your towel layering the different shapes as you go referring to the pattern placement sheet. Remember to peel all the paper off! With a hot, dry iron, fuse everything in place. 

I use white thread to stitch a button hole stitch around the bunny pieces. I used a dark brown thread to stitch around the flower pot, nose and flower.

I ironed a second set of pieces onto a piece of fabric, I think I'll make a table runner out of it.

The pattern for Flopsie Bunny can be found on Etsy.   This design is quick and easy to make in an afternoon and Easter is right around the corner. Paired with a candle or some candy and you have a wonderful springtime gift for the Easter dinner hostess. It also makes a cute display when draped out of an Easter basket.

Happy quilting,
Cindy and Belvedere

  1. Adorable bunny! Here in eastern SD the snow has melted, but we can't seem to find the sunshine.

  2. Just found your blog from CatPatches and I love your BOM 2019. I think that I may embroider the designs but I want to add Prisma Penci colorings, maybe more than I can handle but we will find out soon. Have a very happy Easter holiday with your family. Hoping that spring has sprung in your area, I am in Arizona and today promises to be 100*(the first of many)! I think that Belvedere is just simply adorable.

  3. It looks lovely! Congratulations on the great design and thanks for the inspiration! Bunny looks amazing! I know how much time it takes and how much work to put in each project.
