Continuing on with bunny quilts for spring, I have finished another one. This wall quilt is made from a Cheri pattern called "24 Carrots". It can be found on Cheri's website "Wednesday's Quilts".
When I began to work on cutting out carrot pieces, I had thought I could use the Tri-Recs tool. I am not good at piecing those long pointy pieces. I discovered that the Tri-Recs tool is not the same angle as required for the carrots. I decided to paper piece them and that is not a favorite method for me. I used the freezer paper method of paper piecing. For a visual, I refer to this post on Quilting With Ragdolls. Maybe there is a You Tube video that covers the method but I have not investigated that. You do not sew through the paper using this method. My one tip would be to have a teflon coated foot for your machine. Your foot will at times be running over the waxy side of the freezer paper. The coated foot will glide over it. If you are using your freezer paper pieces over and over, the heaviest of the wax is gone and the foot not necessary. And Cheri style for the carrots, one is upside down and two on their side.
I used wool for the applique bunnies and carrots at the top. A quick and easy way to do it.
My previous post showed my "Patchwork Garden" quilt. Mary from Quilt Hollow did the machine quilting. In some of the comments, I was asked to share close-ups of the quilting designs. The photos are courtesy of Mary.
Back to my sewing room. Wish you could join me. We would have so much fun.
