Pets on Quilts Show!

Welcome everybun! I'm delighted to be participating in this year's Pets on Quilts Show presented by the lovely Darlene, aka SewCalGal!

This will be a week long celebration of pets on quilts and pet themed quilts! Oh boy! Y'all know how much I love critters! I am also sponsoring a prize for this wonderful event, so be sure and hop over to visit SewCalGal and all the other participants!

"Hey Hannah, check out Mama's fabric bucket."
"Do you think she should use this gold piece?"
"Well Harrington, since my name is 'Lady Hannah Goldenhare,' I think it's fabulous! It even matches the spot on my the back of my neck."
Here the bunnies inspect my points on this quilt I made with batiks.

"I think they look pretty good Harrington. What do you think?"
                "I concur. Mama did a fine job and no point police need to be notified."
                      "Hey Harrington! This one has lace on the edge!
               Do you think Mama will let us eat it?"
                       "Fat chance on that one."
No eating the quilt you two! Bunnies...yep, the reason old quilts are on the floor. hee,hee,hee. ;)

I also design quilts and stitcheries featuring bunnies. After all, we are The Raspberry Rabbits. hee,hee,hee. Here are a few of my patterns. You can purchase them in my Shop.
                                       Noelle's Bunnies (it's the head and the ears)

Fleur de Bunny (see the bunnies in the middle? Fun!)

                                         Pumpkin Kisses (stitches up really fast in time for Halloween)

Well, now we are ready to hop off and visit with the other pets and look at critter quilts. We hope ya'll enjoyed your visit with us and will hop back again soon! Oh and don't forget to register for my giveaway on the post below!

Love the bunnies on the quilt, fabulous. Love the quilts.

Pets on quilts literally...those are the best! Although yours aren't really pets. They are overworked according to the secret email Sir Harrington sent to me.

Dianne Mitzel said...

the babies are adorable, pretty quilt too...what do people do who don't have pets to love?? I have a Boston Terrier, Katie, and she is our "little girl." When the kids leave us, it's so nice to have a little dog to fill the void..

Marvelous, marvelous work you do! And I know how much the bunnies contribute helping out with the smallest stitches.
Yes, we may be doing a show in VA Beach over the Thanksgiving wk end. Not for certain yet, I want to check it out a bit more before I commit.

Oh, I love the bunnies! :D Neat designs, too. I especially love Fleur de Bunnies

I'm adding you to my reader. So glad I found you and your marvelous bunnies! I had pet bunnies when I was a kid and I loved them so much.

Hi Shell, how cute. Those buns are soooo fun. I hope you are doing great. I am also looking sooo forward to the fall. I need a break in this heat. I am back at work now, but looking forward to new adventures. The pets on quilt show sounds so cute.
Have a great day.

Well done Hannah and Harrington glad to see you are checking up on your Mum, do you think you could maybe just nibble on the corner of her quilts, just to give others a chance of winning, there could be a carrot for the best one!.... Hugs xxx

Carrie P. said...

Well, of course the bunnies on the quilts are so sweet but so are all the projects with bunnies on them too. I really like Fleur de Bunny. That is so neat how you did the bunnies in the middle of the quilt.

JCnNC said...

Love the Pets on Parade and the bunnies were shinning bright on their walk of fame. Good showing Harrington and Hannah. Judy C in NC

Hee, I bet you had a hard time getting Hannah and Harrington OFF that quilt!

This immediately made me think of Karen over at Rabbits Eat Quilts--she has made some beautiful quilts featuring her bunnehs.

Love your bunneh quilts too!

Connie said...

I always enjoy your photos of your bunnies! I knew they had to be part of the Pets on Parade!

Joanna said...

Lovely bunnies.

Snoodles said...

Hi Shell, You have Harrington and Hannah at the Raspberry Rabbits - I guess I should have a frog at Lilypadquilting? Nah! Love how your quilts are inspired by those cuties! Thanks, too, for being a sponsor at the Pets on Quilts show!

Kim said...

The bunnies are adorable. Our kids wanted a rabbit but we can't have any since we have cats and I heard they don't do very well together. Your quilts are all beautiful.

Gladys said...

Lovely bunnies and quilts!

SoCal Debbie said...

Your Fleur de Bunny quilt is wonderful! What a great Pets on Quilts entry you have, the first one with rabbits! I will vote for you on Saturday.

Linda Carole Bloom said...

Love to see the bunnies! And your quilt with the ears and head is great! Love, Linda

Karen M said...

Love the post, shell. The photos are terrific. Weasley is sending thought waves to H&H, encouraging them to take a tast. I'll distract him, OK?

Kelli said...

Love the bunny quilts, and your bunnies are so cute on them. They look so soft and cuddly!

Belinda said...

Love the bunnies...love the quilts...love this post!!!

Sand and Sunshine said...

This is a darling post. When I saw your bunnies I burst out laughing with the sheer joy of how cute and different they are. DD walks in and says "what's so funny", so I show her your post to which she looks at it and says "that's not funny". Maybe not to a 6 year old that doesn't love quilts and pets, but it was charming for me. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Shelly! Yay you have a picture of the bunnies :-) Very cute! And pretty quilts.

Talin's Corner said...

Your quilts are amazing and, no, I did not see the bunnies until you pointed them out. Very clever, almost an I-spy quilt. And your bunnies are so cute.

missknitta said...

Harrington and Hannah are adorable! I think my favorite of your quilt designs s the Fleur de Bunny -- so clever! Thank you so much for sharing these lovely photos!

The Vegetarian Hunter said...

Beautiful bunnies, they make such interesting pets. I love your designs, the fleur one in this post is my fav, I could see the bunnies straight away!

Pat V. said...

Fleur de Bunny is fabulous. (It took me a minute to see them...)

Melissa said...

Hey, a little quilt chewing can be overlooked when there is so much personality to focus on!

Christine M said...

I've just voted for you, Harrington and Hannah! Good luck!

Janet said...

I always enjoy seeing your bunnies. They are so cute.

LethargicLass said...

your bunny inspectors are a wonderful duo!

tpott said...

You've got my vote, they are sooooo cute!!!!! Good luck!

Jess said...

So glad to see some bunnies in the pet competition! They are adorable. I have a black lop who'll be making his debut on my blog this week:)

Mandy Saile of Bijou's Whimsy said...

Hannah and Harrington are so well behaved. I could let Jin and Jaks run around on something like a quilt for a short whiles I think but I know Ella Luna and Roo would pee and poo on it in 5 seconds flat, ha ha. Give those good bunnies of yours a snuggle for me. XO Mandy.
