Hopping Orange Carrots

>> Monday, April 12, 2010


I am not having a productive, cohesive thought morning.
I am a danger to quilt projects in progress.
Hide the rotary cutter!

But what's waiting in the wings?

Back to work on the Bunny Lady! This time it's filling in all that black space - with carrots!

After trying out different quantities and directions I'm following my husband's advice (again) and having the carrots go around the quilt. I decided that 4 carrots looks better than 5. Now to figure out what to put in the purple corners. My daughter has suggested Easter eggs. I will have a bit of time to ponder as I hand blanket stitch all those carrots down. (Yes, there are more to cut out first!)

Check out what the other quilters are up to through Judy's link.

I was in a fit of fury and ripping through my organized chaos of UFOS this morning to find my orange pumpkins for my Halloween 1904 quilt - only to take a second look at the photos I have on my computer.

Turns out I didn't actually cut them out! More fun to look forward too!!

Enjoy your Monday. I'm going back to bed!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Adorable quilt top. I know what you mean about starting more projects. I try and keep something on my design wall at all times to keep me focused on finishing. If it is empty, I can't concentrate --- then it happens --- another top is started.

Love the carrots. Maybe the corners don't need anything appliqued but perhaps quilt something in them instead?

What a fun quilt! And the carrots make the quilt for sure.

The corners would be a great place to do a bit of embroidery. Easter eggs, bunnies, baskets?

Stay away from the rotary cutter!
The bunny quilt is coming along! I like the idea of easter eggs in the corners!

Yep, the carrots are the key! How fun!
