This makes a 12" block, and a 20" x 22" wall hanging! This one is a study in SOLIDS!

This is an original pattern. Please abide by the Terms and Conditions of use! :o)

I suggest that you run off one copy of the bunny templates, and using tracing paper...trace each individual section you will need onto that. Cut these out, adding 1/8" seam allowances for turning under. You will head, two ears, two feet, two sleeves, two collars, two hands, nine eggs, and four sleeve "shadows". From a scrap of pink cut two tiny cheek circles. Eyes and mouth are embroidered. Buttons can be embroidered, or you could use small buttons! Cut 24 circles using the template (already includes seam allowance)

Start by piecing 12-1/2" long pastel solid strips in NINE different colors Vary strips in width from 1/2" to 1" (cut as 1"-1-1/2"). Keep strip widths the same for each color, that is, if your blue strip is 1", make ALL blue strips 1". Rotate through the color order repetitively to make a 12-1/2" square.

 Make another larger unit like this that should measure 20-1/2" x 22-1/2", using 20-1/2" x varying width strips in the SAME colors. Start this unit with a Color 6 strip, and continue with the same rotation as above, ending when your unit is 22'1/2" long. You may makes this background smaller if you want a smaller wall hanging...

From a tenth pastel, cut out your dress shape, being sure you have added a small amount for seam allowances. Fold your background square (the 12-1/2" one) in half in both directions to find its center. Pin the center of the dress over the exact center of the background square. Appliqué dress down, using thread to match the dress...on to Page 2!
