Make It Monday - Rabbits and Flowers Quilt Finish

Last night I finished Rabbits and Flowers, a quilt for co-worker Kristina R. Today was her last day at the office, as she and her family are moving out of the area. I found out about a week ago that she was leaving, and I decided to make her a quilt. My spy told me that Kristina likes rabbits, and when I did some spying of my own, I noticed a couple of personal items in purple.

Rabbits and Flowers
For co-worker Kristina R., who likes rabbits.
Partly from stash. Original design. 55" square.
Began 7/2/2014, completed 7/6/2014.

Theme fabrics had been in my stash for years. I don't think they are from the same line of fabrics, but they work well together. Rabbit squares are fussy-cut.

I was able to get 12 fussy-cut squares in the rabbit fabric.

I got 9 squares from the floral. Trying a layout.

Another layout

Auditioning dark purples to fill the remaining spaces
I went with the one on the right, which is a tad lighter than the other.

This and the next couple of photos: trying out placement of dark purple squares.

This was my favorite. The diamond shape seemed to add some movement.

White-on-white squares attached

Sewn into five columns

Once again, the finished quilt

I gave the quilt to Kristina this afternoon. She was surprised and happy to get a quilt. Her mom happens to work in the office and I invited her to the presentation, which made it a little more special. 

Enjoy your quilt, Kristina!
