Skydiving Bunnies




My new blogging friend, Heidi, of Red Letter Quilts, sent me an email recently asking if I was interested in this fabric. She found it at her local fabric store and it was super cheap. 

As in, $5.49 a yard. This is a panel print; usually these are sold by the panel which is shorter than a yard.

Anyway, Heidi picked up on my little obsession problem with airplanes and sewing. BFF status here.
I jumped - lol, bunnies jump fast too. In my five boxes of airplane fabrics, I did not own this particular biplane print.

At first, I was just going to get two yards for the stash but then I got looking at the panel and I saw pillowcases. The lower part with the bunny airshow will be the main fabric with the upper sky portion the cuff. A little red in the right tone will be the trim.

Won't everyone on my christmas list love getting new pillowcases for Christmas? So, I asked her to get four yards. You are seriously THE BEST, Heidi!!!


Over all picture of the panel. The sky is folded over at top - so lots of blue with airplanes flying around.







 Lower portion of the panel - depicting a busy little airshow with tents set up and spectators.







For the record, I would never jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

  1. You really got me with that headline, Kathy. For a moment, I thought I would see skydiving bunnies for real (and was a bit shocked). ;) Thanks for the laugh!

    Lots of greetings from Germany,
    Birgit

    1. As I told Heidi, I didn't know skydiving bunnies was a 'thing'.

    1. Windy here too - power is still on. I'm going to set my cell phone wake-up clock as a backup tonight.

    1. Oh, I will. I'm really into making pillowcases in my head. Not sure I have the correct tone of red for the trim. Woot! reason to go to the fabric store.

  6. As if there as any doubt as to whether you'd love the fabric! My thought would have been an attic window, but the pillowcases are a great idea!
