I finished the top of the Whack-a-Bunny quilt (for the most part) for the Doll Quilt Swap 10. All I have to do now is applique my little bunnies, and then I can sandwich and quilt this bad boy.
I tried out a bunch of different prints, but in the end I went with the Henna Garden ones. Whenever I laid out prints that were different (like the Heather Ross and KJR prints I originally pulled), it looked too chaotic compared to the rest of the quilt. I felt the Hennas added a little interest, but still coordinated enough that the top looked symmetrical and pulled-together. I'm still debating on where I want to place the bunnies though...on top of the prints, or the solids???
Some of you emailed me about wanting a tutorial for the reverse applique technique, so tune in tomorrow because I'll be posting one. It's a really easy technique, so the post will be brief :)
