more bunny fabric

I am definitely going to make a bunny quilt.  I haven't chosen a pattern yet, I'm still in mad fabric buying stage!  These little babies joined my stash last week.



The blue one is Ric Rac Rabbits, the white is another print of Enchant and the red is Ric Rac rabbits again, all from Hulu. The teal is another colour way of Critter Patch from a seller on Ebay.



So having a look at the full line up...  From left top, going down in columns:

Red ric rac rabbits
Pink unknown
Orange Forest Playground
Cream Just for Fun
White Enchant
White/red/black unknown
Cream Just for Fun from Celynn
White Enchant tea party
Blue Just for Fun
Blue Lily and Will
Blue Ric Rac Rabbits
Teal Critter Patch
Grey Critter Patch
Aqua Enchant Tea Party
I also have 2 Bluebird Park prints which aren't show - Orange on Teal and Yellow on Grey.

This is going to be a rainbow quilt, by necessity.  The plan is to build up the stash more and think about a pattern.  I clearly need more red, and yellow fabrics.  I'm doing OK for white and blue.  Green needs some serious effort and I need to find some purple too.

So my lovely readers, you're all on bunny watch!  Please keep an eye out and let me know if you come across any.  My lovely US reader (or anyone) can let me know when lines come out so I can put them on my radar.  UK readers, I'd love it if you let me know if you spot any I'm missing on your shopping trips around t'internet.  Ange - I have bought some Posy as suggested!

When I've got a few more, I might need to think about Ebay and Etsy for older lines (though it's pricey) and even Spoonflower, but I'm going for the current and mainstream first.  If anyone did want to send me any bunny scraps, I might be able to offer you something in return...

I had a good look through, I definitely have my running red rabbits but I also found a panel which amongst other animals has rabbits on, but they're not cute cartoony ones so not sure if it's any good. Remind me to take a picture later.

It's a good thing that I don't sew and quilt b/c there is so much pretty fabric out there.

What an amazingly fun collection of fabrics. I wouldn't have thought there were so many bunny fabrics. They'll make a great quilt.

My local fabric shop has a Ric Rac rabbits panel fabric on sale for 3 dollars a panel? It had brownish background and a charming border of red rabbits and a larger rabbit in the middle that's in a pink box. Also, another local shop has Posy by Aneela Hoey which has rabbits on pink/coral, on lavender/lilac and on minty aqua green. If any of those interest you, we could possibly do an exchange?

That's a pretty collection - it'll be a fabulous quilt when you're done! I've been saving cat fabrics for years to make a quilt for me - I have enough fabrics, but not enough time!

your fabric seems to be breeding as fast as rabbits, lots of different designs.

Not bunny fabric, but on her blog IkatBag, Lier has tutorials for adorable little toy bunnies, and tiny carrots and beds for them. I thought of you immediately.
