A Cute Table Runner From Remnants
Made With Die Cuts
|Sizzix Big Shot Pro, pads and bunny die|
I bought this Sizzix die cutter and bunny die at a quilt show and had an idea for Easter.
|I made bunnies!|
Two fabrics, one for milk chocolate Easter bunnies and one for dark chocolate.
I free form cut some bites out of the bunnies, because I just cannot resist a chocolate bunny.I collected Easter fabric remnants for a few years and came up with this arrangement of strips. I arranged the strips so that you will get the same view from either end of the table.
I used a heat bond fusible webbing to attach each of the bunnies and then a simple zigzag edge for raw edge applique.
|Two table runners on the longarm|
I actually made two table runners. One to keep and one to gift. I put them on the longarm with one large backing and one large batting and then trimmed around them to separate them when I was done quilting. It worked great with them together instead of messing with a skinny piece on the longarm.
|Quilted bunny tail|
I decided to quilt a small swirl of a bunny tail on the bunnies.
|Something is really lacking here|
At this point I am really not happy with the bunny tails.
You can use either side of the table runner with this cute egg backing.
|Big fuzzy tail!|
This looks much better.
I shared my table runner with some people and several suggested a big fluffy fuzzy tail would look better than the quilted one. I am so glad I asked for opinions. Sometimes I just can't see what is needed. The quilted tail shows on the back of the fabric.
I am so happy with how my table runner turned out. It really adds some color and the bites out of the bunnies were a real hit.
