    A very dear friend of mine loves bunnies so I bought this fabric to make a lap quilt for her. I am not sure what pattern to use to show off the bunnies. Any ideas would be most appreciated
    Please keep in mind am a novice quilter at best so I need something fairly simple. I only have one tan, should I get another tan to go along or take the tan out. But then it would all be green and I really don't want that. Open to any and all suggestions.

    I think Warm Wishes would work well with those fabrics. Here's a link to a bed size version. http://www.quiltmaker.com/content_do...DoubleSize.pdf

    And here's a link to a baby quilt size. http://www.ashevillequiltguild.org/A...or%20Linus.pdf

    If you search Warm Wishes on this board, there are posts with pictures of this quilt made by some of the members. Lots of great inspiration!

    beautiful fabrics! I might add just a bit of white in there depending on the design you go with. maybe something with a large square to show off the bunnies

    maybe a disapearing 9 patch

    Your fabric choices are wonderful. I would be loathe to cut up the bunnies. Maybe something where there are fairly large pieces of that so you can see several bunnies together. I cannot suggest a particular one, but maybe just large squares and strips of the others.

    I love your bunny fabric, Myrna, and your coordinating fabrics are perfect with it.

    I think the Warm Wishes pattern would look great, but here is another idea.

    This is a pattern off of the Moda Bake Shop blog that would keep your bunny fabric in one piece. You could just use this as an idea and go from there.

    You have beautiful fabric. I would not want to cut it up too small. You could use the rabbit print as a backing and then make blocks for the front from the others.
