Foundation Pieced Bunnies

This is the fourth and final baby quilt made from the Beatrix Potter fat quarter collection. You may recall that I challenged myself to use every scrap of the fat quarter collection I purchased.

My inspiration for this design was a beautiful antique quilt that I own that was foundation pieced on feedsack.

I went ahead and used my scraps fairly randomly, piecing them on a light cotton foundation fabric. I don’t love the resulting quilt, I’m sad to say, because I think it is too random. The off-white corner triangles in each block do not do enough to create a cohesive look. However, I have dutifully quilted it with a mix of walking foot and free-motion, and I will just have to chalk this one up to living and learning.
