However, we can easily imagine embroidered motifs from vintage linens used in the centers. Vintage hankies could work, as well.
Or perhaps you have an applique motif you want to use (make the blocks all the same or each one different). Family photos printed on fabric are another option. You can even leave the centers plain and fill them with a beautiful quilting design.
There are so many things you can do with this quilt that we tend to think of it as a basic template that can be adapted to showcase just about anything.
Of course, you can also make it up as the designer intended by using kids crayons to “color” the 12 blocks showing a bunny’s life throughout the year. Full instructions are included, as well as coloring sheets to trace. Your kids or grand kids will have fun helping with this project, and you’ll have a lovely baby or child’s quilt to give once it’s done.
The piecing for this quilt is quite simple and can be done with scraps and other goodies from your stash. Select colors that accent whatever you want to put in the block centers without overwhelming them.
The finished quilt, from Golden Thimble, is 40″ by 52″. You can easily add more blocks for a larger quilt.
