Bunnies in Clover

A  Bright Spring Table Runner

Before spring is over, I wanted to show you the table runner that I made for the spring season.  
I was able to find this cute (and free) paper pieced pattern with adorable bunnies and clover, at

 The pattern is designed by Theresa Eisinger.  Theresa makes it into a table topper (sized at 32 in wide x 26 in high), but I made a few changes to create a longer table runner. (46 in wide x 14 1/2 in high)

This is my version of the Spring Hop Table Runner ~

I machine quilted the leg on each bunny,  some clouds, and some grass texture

 A scallop line  was quilted in the daisy border
I love the varied  colors in the green batik  jelly strips

The yellow fabric is really easy way to brighten a rainy spring day

I will enjoy bringing out my bunnies in the clover table runner for many springs to come.And, I plan on making a few other little projects with these blocks for next spring! This bunny is perfect for Easter, too!

Hope you are enjoying spring!
