Whack-a-Bunny Quilt Pattern

Whack-a-Bunny Quilt

I've gotten requests for more information on the Whack-a-Bunny quilt - like dimensions, yardage requirements, etc., so I've decided to post a brief pattern for you! Most of the instructions you need can already be found in my tutorial on reverse applique, but I thought I'd go ahead and give you all some basic cutting and piecing directions, as well as fabric requirements.

Fabric Requirements
  • Twenty solid charms (5"x5") in graduated colors (I used part of a Kona Pastel Charm pack)
  • 3/4 yard white solid
  • 1/4 yard for binding
  • 3/4 yard for backing
Cutting Instructions
Fold your white fabric in half, selvage to selvage, and cut four 6.5" x 44" strips. Unfold your strips and sub-cut into 6.5" x 6.5" squares. You should be able to get 6 squares from every strip (for a total of 24, but you only need to cut 20)

To create each block, follow the reverse applique instructions here. I didn't include this in the tutorial, but to help me center my fabrics (and traced circle), I folded and ironed my fabric pieces into grids (as seen below). and lined up the center points. Then I pinned and pressed flat again.

Once the blocks are completed, lay them out in color order in a 4x5 grid. Sew the blocks into rows (starting with the top row), and then sew the five rows together (starting from the top).

Layer and quilt. The binding yardage listed above is for 1/2" binding (which is what I used for this quilt). You'll need to cut three 2.5" x 44" strips, and then follow the instructions here to complete. 

Finished Dimensions: 24" x 30"


This would be so cute if you expanded it to table runner size! It would make the cutest Easter/Spring runner!
