A Delicious Bunny

Abandoned book"The Alexandria Link" by Steve Berry ♦♦◊◊◊

'Way back when in early March, I posted a picture of the second Red Delicious block here. Sometime between then and the end of June, I did block #3 and promptly lost the photo. I had to go lift it from a forum posting (though heaven knows why I didn't just pull out the block and take another picture of it).

Red Delicious #3Here's block #3.

Red Delicious #4Just last week (?) I finished block #4. All of the blocks are rather large, but this one is gigantic! I think it's something like 18" tall.

I'm not sure why I'm so surprised given the number of pieces, but these puppies take me about 7 hours to complete.

Block #5 is traced and ready for fabric selection. Then comes the time-consuming tasks of window-paning the fusible web, fusing the pieces and inking the final block. Block #5 also may sport some subtle embellishment. Whether it does or not might depend on the abilities of my back-up sewing machine!

Tisket Block MaySo then there was last month's sad, sad bunny-related disasters.

I might be tempting ol' Murphy, but this month's (okay, the month of May's) Bunny Hill Designs A Tisket, A Tasket BOM block was relatively painless.

When working on this block, I put the previous months' blocks up on my design wall. I noticed that each block had pink or blue or both in it. I'm going to have to figure out a way to be sure to include some more greens and golds, since I've purchased those four colors for the alternate setting blocks!

As with the Red Delicious BOM (and Ellie's Country Calendar BOM), the next months' blocks are traced and awaiting fabric selection.

Thanks again to Carrie for pointing me to the English version of Ellie's BOM page. I've been linking to (and downloading) the Dutch version. Sometimes I'm brilliant. Other times? Not so much.
