30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - My Day - Happy Easter!

Hello and welcome to Creatin' in the Sticks!



I'm excited to start this month long blog hop
and
show my project using 



The four patch block is so simple, but can be used in so many ways.

I love fussy cutting fabrics and the four patch is a fun way to use those blocks.


But my favorite way to use the four patch quilt block
is to use it in the background of applique.

Since my day to post in the blog hop is Easter,
 I thought this quilt fit the occasion.  lol


For this quilt, I made 25 of the 4 patch blocks out of fabric I had been given by a friend.

Next I added a 5"  finished border
to make my 
Happy Easter quilt 60" x 60".

Then I added the bunny by cutting him out of minky fabric and basting him on the quilt with 


I stitched Mr. Bunny on the quilt then added the sign with HeatnBond Lite.


So I finally have something decorating the house for Easter this year.  

Click here to see the full schedule of the blog hop
and 
check out the giveaway.


Thank you for stopping by.
Have a Happy Easter
and
Happy April too.

I enjoy your posts. Using spray adhesive idea makes me a little stronger towards using minky. Loved the quilt, just goes to show a simple block can turn out so cute.
