Christmas Bunnies

The daughter of a friend of mine has recently acquired a pair of rabbits which gave me lots of ideas of what to give as a Christmas gift. In addition to a decorated mug, I decided to add a cushion which she can display in her bedroom. The rabbits are one in Black and one in White appliqued onto an attractive floral print cotton with a Blue background. Although I lined the White Rabbit fabric with extra stabiliser I notice there is just a very slight show-through of the print but otherwise I think that they sit well on this background. I  used a light fusible wadding for the front of the cushion and quilted 1/4″ around the edges of the rabbits plus a row of echo quilting to make the bunnies stand out. The reverse of the cover has a button closure with my favourite method of print binding on the buttonhole band. The cover measures 15″ and the cushion pad is polyester filled.
