This is my monthly off the edge quilting project to go along with the so scrappy rainbow quilt challenge where she tells us a color each month and quilters do blocks with scraps with that color.
This month was light blue.
I used a novelty print square for this one and a nice light blue mottled batik for the background.
As you can see I held myself back from doing a lot of coloring in like my last few off the edge projects and I have to say that sometimes less is more. I like it :-)
I started by drawing the trees, snow and bunny in his hidey hole in pencil, then free motion quilted over the pencil with black thread. (These illustration photos were taken inside and the finish at the top outside which shows you what a difference taking your photos with natural light makes)
But I digress :-)
Sky is stippled with light blue thread.
I had to do some color so dabbed some pearl white fabric paint on some of the snow and colored the background snow with white thread.
Colored in the bunny's eyes with black micron pen and with colored pencil his "lair".
You can see him better now. He's so cute!
Go to the rainbow scrap challenge every Saturday to see all the blocks of a different color.
