Hares in a Field!

A while ago I bought the Moda All-stars All in a Row book.  It is filled with great patterns.  You can make a quilt of the rows or you can use the rows as stand alone wall hangings.  Being Spring, I decided to make the hares chasing butterflies row.  I used a lovely aqua Grunge for the background.

The pattern requires one to construct a hare using brads so that he becomes posable.  This enables you to trace different hares onto your fusible web.  Quiet a genius idea!

I used fabric with butterflies on it and cut out the butterflies to appliqué to the background fabric.

I embroidered a chain stitch collar in pastel colors onto the hares.  Eyes are french knots.

I free motion quilted in a green color thread for the grass and an aqua color thread for the sky.   I quilted loops in the "sky" area to depict the flight of the butterflies.  I had so much fun quilting this one.

This was such a fun little quilt to make.  I will definitely be making more of the rows.  So many designers and so many lovely rows.
