R is for rabbit


R is for rabbit - mini art quilt, originally uploaded by -syko-.

This is the most fresh member of the ABC-family. It is for a little girl, obviously. I think this is my personal favourite so far. I am thinking of printing cards of these, but I will have to see if the scanner likes them, it can be a little tricky with fabric. At the moment I am waiting for another collection of postcards with my designs, I will hopefully have them next week.

I just talked to a friend from Åland, who is engaged in a local museum where I worked for two Summers when I studied. I was trained to become an Ethnologist, you know :) Freya (I love that name!) asked if my mother and I wanted to have an exhibition in the attic of the museum. Of course we want! Mum will make a summery collection of paintings and I will quilt, of course. Very inspiring. I will probably be making a couple of larger quilts similar to the baby quilt I just made, but with a Summer feel. A fun project to look forward to!

Oh I love the bunny, I mean Rabbit!
Congrats on the upcoming show...sounds like you come from a creative family. I am looking forward to seeing your cards, I'm hoping to see a bike piled high with fabric (crossed fingers).

This is SO AWESOME. Congrats on getting the exhibit. Your work is amazing, and it definitely deserves to be publicly displayed. You should link this post on my inspiration challenge. It looks like you were "inspired" by your mini quilt because of the little raindrops! How cool is that!

Thanks so much for you advice on the craft fair:) I never thought about the amount of one type of item! Totally makes sense.

Have a great day!
