Inspiration and Bunny Quilts

Easter seems linked to rabbits, doesn’t it? I spotted this guy on Pinterest and followed the links.

 Inspiration and Bunny Quilts

Original embroidery by Salley Mavor

He’s by a talented artist named Salley Mavor at Wee Folk Studio. You may enjoy her work—I was totally inspired. She makes amazing fiber art and has a current exhibit in Cotuit, Massachusetts:

Friday, May 9, 2014, 7:00 pm In conjunction with her Pocketful of Posies exhibit (April 5 – May 27), Salley Mavor will give a presentation about her work at the Cotuit Public Library.

In other bunny news, the quilt below was designed by Associate Editor Paula Stoddard for Quiltmaker’s Quilts from 100 Blocks, Fall ’12. Paula says, “I was like a kid in a candy store while designing this quilt – it was ridiculously fun figuring out what do with all those ears.”

And you may have seen some of QM’s Patch Pals quilts over the past few years. This post wouldn’t be complete without showing you Bunny Patch.
