    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I'd have to burn the quilt...possibly move out of the house. I am so creeped out by bats!

    It shows that the bat has great taste in choosing its place of rest! Your cute is so cute. I do know that bats can get through the tiniest of places. They are interesting critters to say the least-but better suited to the outdoors!

    Love your bunnies!. We've had 2 bats this summer,they always come flying in when I'm sleeping.They say just sit and wait until they land, its much easier to "bag" them then. I think ours came in the chimney which is wired now

    One flew down the chimney in our house years ago and scared the daylight out of our Greyhound. Poor Jenny B came to me for protection :-)

    literally, bats & quilts

    Those things rank right up there with snakes as creatures I really, really dislike. I would have went flying out of the house and not went back until that creature was gone. Geez!!!

    I was raised with a neighbor and his snakes and spent time at Carlsbad caverns NM and so like bats, very interesting critters. So happy you got it back outside, thank you for doing that. Quilt is adorable and I am sure he liked it too.

    Awwww! I grew up with bats on the farm. They would come out at night and fly around our property. Though you do have to be careful with them, I'm glad you could catch and release safely. It knew that your beautiful quilt was the perfect place to roost!

    Such an adorable landing strip for an unwelcome guest!!! My children taught me how to tie small pebbles in the corner of a white dishtowel, toss it in the air and a bat will fly into white spot. Don't know why but it works. Then you can just take it outdoors inside the towel and set it free. When we lived on a Ranch, the bats were frequent visitors, and I was a frequent screamer.

    Oh my! At first glance I thought "what a good idea to put a silk flower in the corner" and then I realized what it was! Would have scared me for sure. Glad you were able to catch it.

    Ooh, I'd have been scared to death! My DD had one in her dorm room last fall (2nd day of classes. Her dorm was an old converted house on campus.) Her roommate got bitten while trying to get it out (my DD was hiding under the covers) and they had to make a trip to the ER at 2am. Poor roommie had to get the rabies shots in her hand because that's where the bite was. The next night there was one in someone else's room. Thankfully, this year she's in a newer dorm.

    for anyone interested, here is the original post of this bunny quilt. Scroll down for the pattern information. It is from a book.

    Sorry so many are eeek'd out by a little bat. They are mostly harmless and quite fun to watch.

    Thanks for liking the quilt. It was fun to make.
