EasTer TiMe


With Easter just around the corner I made this little 12inch mini and placed it on my entrance table. Now all my family, friends and guests will be WeLcOmeD by this cute little fellow.
I was inspired by "The Easter Bunny" by Melinda Storey, from Patchwork & Stitching Vol 3 No 12.
There is a story behind the inflated bunny. She came all the way from New Mexico (USA) to Australia and I've had her in my company for 33 years. Yes it was 1978 when then fiance' came out of a little store with her under his arm with a bag of M&M's (unknown to me at that stage) and said Happy Easter my LoVe! And so every year she and M&M's have brightened our Easter!







A face only a any MoThEr would LoVe!

Your little mini Easter quilt is adorable! I'm surprised that your little inflatible bunny is still able to hold air after all these years but what a wonderful memory she holds :)
