Easter Bunny Hopping in Early!

I purchased an Easter Bunny table runner kit several years ago, opened it to admire the pattern and fabrics, and then packed it away in my to-do-someday stash. Last week, I decided to work on it since Easter is just around the corner, and I wanted something bright and cheerful.

This table runner is called “Hopping Hares” by Connecting Threads. It uses a combination of appliqued bunnies with pieced borders.

I embroidered the bunny whiskers and mouth using a gold-toned floss. I plan to add button eyes once the quilting is complete. The binding will be the same striped fabric as the inner border.

It was a pretty easy project, and I’m really happy to see the spring colors. Spring itself is trying to make an appearance here in Oregon with buds appearing on trees and early bulbs peeking up through the soil. I have some purple and white crocus blooming in the garden and several early daffodils are just waiting for a sunny day to burst open!

Here’s a pic of the bunny table runner before quilting and binding:

Hopefully, we’ll get some more sunshine soon and chase away all the winter blues!

Enjoy the bunnies!
