Whether you are stitching on a longarm machine like the fabulous BERNINA Q20 or Q24, or on a domestic machine like my BERNINA 770 QE (with its gorgeous stitch formation), this step-by-step tutorial will have you ready for spring—“Quick like a bunny!”
Start by doodling the motif several times until you can do so without looking at the tutorial. Then doodle the bunny for a few more minutes to develop muscle memory. Now you are ready to stitch the bunny with smooth stitching lines for an adorable border on any quilt, table runner or tea towel.
To complete the bunny, echo stitch the circle and the oval and continue along the bottom line to create the next bunny or add other elements like a simple basket and eggs or a row of your favorite spring flowers!
QUICK FMQ TIP
Whenever you are machine quilting, regardless of thread choice, you will probably need to adjust your tension to create the best looking stitch. Always adjust the top tension first, and only adjust the bobbin tension if you cannot achieve a balanced stitch with top tension adjustments alone.
