The White Rabbit Is Off And Hopping Today

The White Rabbit is definitely ready to go hopping...are you? 
My day is today and I'm ready to share what I made.


The challenge was: 

Make something with white fabrics, rabbits, or white rabbits. 

There is a tradition for people to say “white rabbit” on the first day of the month (have you 
ever heard of this?) The phrase is supposed to bring good luck for the rest of the month
Even President Roosevelt did this!

My White Rabbit quilt is actually more "Alice in Wonderlandish".
I usually feel exactly like him with the whole, "I'm late" thing.


I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date! 
No time to say hello, goodbye!
I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!

I am a HUGE fan of J. Wecker Frisch's fabric and can't resist the urge to buy it when I see it.
I might just have a whole lot of it in my stash!
I love her "Mad Masquerade" and "Queen of "We'en" fabrics.

"THE WHITE RABBIT"
60" x 70"


That ginormous rabbit can be found in Bootleg Canyon, Boulder City, Nevada.


"The White Rabbit" hanging out with Big Horn Sheep in Hemingway Park, Boulder City, Nevada.


He was double-dog-daring me to pet him!
Nooo...I don't even try!
I've seen people try to pet them. 
I think they have "stupid" written on their foreheads.


They are at the park everyday, but they do not let you pet them.


If you look close, you'll see a white rabbit in the outer border fabric.


I used Urban Elementz "All Decked Out" pantograph for quilting around the center block.





Look! Look! Look! It's A Giveaway!

  6. Yes! Here's to more Comments! I noticed that my blog is not generated in the notifications going out through BlogLovin' - I got one comment on the last post. Let's keep trying. I'm thinking it is because I do not make many posts over the past 2 years. Good Luck with the Blog! Your Urban Elements pattern is a perfect fit for your quilt. I'm quite envious! It is just gorgeous!

  14. So fun! The photo of the quilt with the bunny is mind blowing because the quilter's brain tries to figure out the scale...the rabbit can't be THAT big, or maybe it's a mini quilt, but the hands holding the quilt give away the true scale!

  25. I have never heard about saying "white rabbit" on the first of the month! I wonder where that came from?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well...this is LJ. I've tried to sign in with my Google Account. It doesn't work. :( Just wanted you to know that your white rabbit must be having a wonderful time visiting. Thank you for mentioning the outside border fabric - how cute it is. Thanks for not 'petting'; there are always some that don't understand "wild" animals and think they are immune to the wild creatures reactions!

  27. That is a beautiful quilt, and what a beautiful setting for the photography!
