Bunny and Berry Cuteness!

Bunny  and Berry Cuteness!

I had such fun  ( more than " a barrel full of bunnies!" ) making a spring pillow.... using a paper pieced pattern design by Janeen at Quilt Art Designs, and a background fabric by Moda's Bonnie and Camille fabrics!

Pattern:    Rabbit  by Janeen  from Quilt Art Designs "Paper Piecing 1/4 " " digital magazine, issue 9  April-June 2016  {available Here }.  This issue 9 features lots of adorable pets!!!  

Block size:  14 " x 14 "  finished

Fabric:  -   background for pillow front-  Hello Darling  by Bonnie and Camille for  Moda Fabrics   
             bunny - various taupes and creams from my stash
             back-   red and white picnic gingham from my stash

Zipper and 14" pillow form

I looked up some cute little pet bunnies online, to give me some inspiration on what fabrics to use for making my own little bunny.

I love the taupe and white bunnies.... and before I knew it,  my own little paper pieced rabbit, shown below,  in the center, was sewn up!

My little pet rabbit.... her name is Strawberry!  

Strawberry,  the sweet little pet  rabbit pillow

I love, love, love using the  Bonnie and Camille "Hello Darling " strawberry fabric as my  background fabric for the pattern!!!  I smile whenever I see it !

And when I found the red gingham fabric in my stash, I knew that would make the perfect backing for the pillow !  And I couldn't resist making a  covered zipper with some of the strawberry fabric scraps!!

Strawberry loves posing for photo shoots!  ( Don't tell her about Instagram!)

The eyes on Janeen's patterns are so life-like, aren't they?  

Want to see other cute little pets??   Be sure to look at the rest of the   pet patterns that Janeen has designed in this issue 9 ,  of "Paper Piecing 1/4 "  "  digital magazine !  A pillow or a mini wallhanging would make a beautiful Mother's Day  or birthday gift!
