Ok, I must admit that I am so excited for my final post of 2018 to be my Down the Rabbit Hole Quilt. I have been working on this quilt ALL this year and last year!! What a wonderful way to wrap up the year:)!
I never intended to join this quilt along by Sarah Fielke back in 2017, but when I started to see the center section popping up all over Instagram, I knew I had to jump Down the Rabbit Hole and start the adventure:) You can get the pattern book along with the video instruction at Sarah’s website, http://www.sarahfielke.com
This quilt has been a journey. I have learned so many new things. First, and foremost, is learning to appliqué. I absolutely LOVE it!
I have learned a fun way to make circles with foil that makes the most beautiful fabric circles in no time at all. GENIUS!!
I have spent many relaxing nights watching fun television shows while stitching away. It has accompanied me on many road trips and airplane rides. It has even been my companion through a broken wrist.
I loved quilting it up and immediately placing it on a bed to admire how perfectly it fits on a queen size bed. I couldn’t even wait for the binding!
I am glad I changed my rabbits to be facing away from the center because now they aren’t upside down when the quilt is on a bed.
This bed is not the home for this quilt, but I just had to show you how it looks hanging over the edges. It is delightful:)
I was very glad that we had a snow storm on our mountain this week. I immediately packed up the quilt, kids, and my dear husband for an afternoon of playing in the snow and a photo shoot. A winter wonderland was the perfect spot for my Alice in Wonderland quilt!
Thank you for stopping by my neck of the woods today. I hope you will have a moment or two to check out how the other quilters are progressing with their hand quilting.
