Quilts from Grammabunny

Grammabunny donates so many quilts to Project Linus -- several each month! All of them are made with obvious love and care, and the finish touch is her personalized label. She always signs them, and either puts them in a cute label, like the one below, or writes a cute little saying. It must be an extra-special treat to receive a Grammabunny quilt!
Her summer quilts have an outdoors theme. There are lots of lizards and bugs and other creepy-crawlies on this quilt to delight a child.
This lovely quilt is made of butterfly fabrics -- and even the squares are put together to look like butterflies flitting over the quilt.
This great string quilt uses lots of outdoors fabrics in the design, and the border and back are full of lizards.
What is more outdoorsy than bears in the woods and by the lake?
On behalf of the many, many children whose lives you have brightened, thank you, Grammabunny!

Quilts received in April

This great heartstrings quilt was made primarily by Talese and also at various worknights and Make A Blanket Day. Talese put it together and Connie L. quilted it -- beautifully, as always. It's lovely!
Cheri made this quilt from a guild kit. For a little extra something in the solid squares, she used cookie cutters as applique patterns. The Needle & I in Rantoul kindly offered their services and quilted it for us.
Two Lion King panels were donated, and Tom (Elaine G's husband) quilted them for us. He did a very elaborate job and it really made the details in the design pop. Thank you!
Tom also did a great job quilting this donated panel. Some child will love this fun quilt.
This 9-patch design is a great way to feature a fun novelty print.
This quilt is lovely -- soft but cheery colors!
And here's another donated panel quilt -- perfect for a preschooler or toddler!
Many thanks to everyone who donated a quilt or the fabric to make one.
