White Rabbit! White Rabbit! Jack is here!

White Rabbit! White Rabbit!

Jack is quite fond of beanstalks! Indeed he is! Bunnies are, after all, herbivores!

Welcome to the first White Rabbit, White Rabbit! (see previous post if you're wondering). This is my latest art quilt in the series for 2011, the year of the rabbit.

I do love books, storytelling, rabbits, stitching and quilting and this is the second piece in my Folk Art Fusion technique. One day I would love to travel around and teach this technique to others. Wouldn't that be fun!!

Jack and his beanstalk are appliqued in wool against a black and grey background. This piece measures 19 1/2" x 25" and includes the decorative metal hanger. This piece is original and one of a kind.

Jack and his beanstalk are available for purchase in my Shop. White Rabbit! White Rabbit!

I stopped by to see this BEAUTIFUL wall hanging of yours! I LOVE IT! and the colors are wonderful too... NOW, there will be "NO PUNCHING", maybe a gentle tap BUT "NO PUNCHING"! Maybe Sugie Bun Bun used to play WHITE RABBIT in a previous life and that's how he got those Beautiful eyes? hehe
Hugs to you,
Donna

What a handsome fellow that Jack is! I only wish I had room to give him a home, but the Peters refuse to share any more wall space with anybun. ;)

Good enough to eat( and I bet Jack is thinking that too - you keep an eye on him....)
