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.
