Rabbits Prefer Chocolate Quilt

 With Easter
 coming a little early this year
I'm happy to have finished my
Rabbits Prefer Chocolate
 The pattern by 
came out a while back.
The original pattern (see above)
can be found on 
Bunny Hill Designs web site 
For me, the top was a 
work in progress
over several years.
Once I met 
Pat Roche (Pat's Just Quilting)
I knew she was the one
I wanted to do the 
long arm quilting.
She did such a wonderful job,
and I am sooo pleased!
 This post is a little picture heavy, 
but I wanted you to be able to see each
appliqued block,
and especially 
how Pat's quilting really
really enhanced each space.
 One of the fun parts of this quilt
was adding the extra embellishments
of colorful ribbons and buttons.
I went through my mother's old button jar,
so there is a little bit of 
family heritage within this quilt.
Chocolate rabbits 
always were my favorite candy
in my basket each year.
Happy Easter!

Oh Nedra, this is fabulous! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide all the individual closeups; I would never have been able to appreciate the work and embellishments on each panel otherwise. I can understand why it took so long to do!

Love this quilt, Nedra. I've just finished Block 5 of mine- so funny to see you've just finished yours.
