Olivia's Quilt

There is no better way to say "I love you" than to make someone a quilt. A dear friend of mine had a baby a few months ago and I knew just the thing to make her: A Baby Quilt! I started out with the idea to have an appliqued bunny in the middle with a pink button eye and a little red heart by it's mouth.

Then I decided I wanted the bunny to be surrounded by a dynamic checkerboard. I stripped pieced the checkerboard which made it very easy.

I made two 1/2 inch inner boarders around the bunny: flowers and then polka-dots. For the two outside boarders I flipped them: polka-dots first (1 1/2 inch boarder) and flowers (5 inch boarder).

In all I only used 4 fabrics, which is unusual for me, but I kept it sweet and simple and let the fabrics do the talking for me. The only other thing I need to add is "Somebunny Loves You" embroidered above the bunny.
