Rabbits Anyone?

No, not the four-legged ones, but the quilt designs!

I’d like to introduce you to The Rabbit Factory, a Canadian quilt pattern company.

RFlogo3x3_300dpi Their quilting patterns use up-to-date rotary cutting, machine piecing and hand or machine appliqué techniques.

Lorraine Lefort, who was the owner of The Running Stitch for 14 years, my LQS in the BIG city of Ottawa, is the Rabbit Factory’s publisher and Lydia Quigley is the designer.

Here’s a peek at one of my favorite designs for which I have the complete set of patterns and fabric just waiting for me to get started.

Lorraine and Lydia have just started a blog which already features several tutorials. Why not stop by to have a look and please say hello while you’re visiting.

Happy stitching!

What a pretty quilt. It looks so involved to me - the non quilter - but I know you will make it gorgeous!

That is soooo kewl about your love for Eldreth Pottery too! I wish I had more of their pieces. I can imagine how nice they look in your stills Kaaren.
