True confessions! I can't draw. At all! Never give me a blank sheet of paper and tell me to draw anything.
As a result, I put off trying to draw applique in Electric Quilt for a long time. However -- it really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. And I found that EQ gave me all these neat predefined shapes, so I didn't have to be a great drawer.
If you are drawing challenged, this video tutorial is for you. You will be amazed at how easy it is to create a bunny to welcome spring.
Would you like to create this quilt to celebrate spring?
The fabrics from this quilt were from the February 2021 Fabric of the Month Free Download on the Do You EQ website. The collection was Rose Whispers by Eleanor Burns for Benartex.
Here is my bunny from the video (created as an applique motif).
Here is the quilt.
If you would like to share a picture of your bunnies, I've set up a post on the Learning EQ Facebook group.
