Folk Sampler

My friend Lynn is going to recognize this quilt right away. When I saw her version of this many years ago, I rushed to get the pattern and make one of my own. I can't remember how long ago that was now. It's been awhile!

The pattern is Folk Sampler, by Cordie Gary, and I see that it's still available here. The original pattern has 12 folk motifs, and they are all lovely, but I knew 12 would be far too many for me to tackle, so I selected four.
I knew I wanted the rabbit for certain. He was my first choice. He's the least colorful of the lot, but he's just so sweet.

This is a seasonal decoration in my house, perfect for winter time, but a bit too dark and heavy for spring and summer. We will enjoy it for a few more weeks before it gets packed away again.
