Hopping Down the Bunny Trail!

The calendar has announced the arrival of spring!  Mother Nature has a habit of not listening to the calendar ... but she has no control over what happens within the walls of DillyDallydom!  In my small home ... here in my remote corner of the planet ... spring arrives when the bunnies come out to play!
First to arrive ... some old friends ... wool peeps and eggs!
Want to arrange them differently this year ...
... I like to switch it up a bit ...
... the peeps and one egg found their temporary home ... rub-a-dub-dub some peeps in a tub!
These bunnies also came out to play!
A raw edge applique' chubby bunny ... I refer to her as my sophisticated bunny.  Doesn't she look like she is on her way to a victorian tea party?
Mr. Cottontail is a tinted embroidery bunny ... making his Easter egg deliveries.
These little wool bunnies are busy frolicking amongst Easter eggs and button flowers.  Bunnies  are just so dang sweet!
I came across a few other bunny friends that have been waiting to join the fun.  I began this project a few years some time ago ... everything was cut and fused in place.  Sew ... time to layer it and get it quilted!
They are part of McKenna Ryan's Forest Hollow design, which is actually "owl" themed.  I purchased this pattern for the bunnies ... I'd been looking for a rabbit wall quilt that wasn't necessarily "Easter" related.  This little wall quilt can hang from spring through summer ... well past the Easter holiday season.
It had been some time since I had done any raw edge applique' ... yep, it was scary!  It was a relief when my mojo somewhat returned.  Let's just say ... I will not be sharing any close up photos.  ;-)
The facial features were the biggest challenge for me ... I am not a natural at machine quilting and drawing ... thank heavens for FriXion pens.
Yay!  Binding is always a time to celebrate!
All done!  Two new bunnies to add to our Bunny Trail!
Mr. Chocolate bunny had been very lonely ... so they joined him!  Another PhD finished ... yep ... we are all doing a "Hoppy" dance here in DillyDallydom!

Do what you love.  Hop!  Do dillydally!
