A Few New Designs

I know I've been very quiet for the past few months. As some of you know, I've been caring for my Mother for the past few years. With looking after Mom, I'm not able to get out and about too much, so I haven't had much interesting to chat about. But, I have still been quilting, and here are photos of two new designs.
This one is titled "Loves Music, Loves To Dance.

I haven't got a name for this one yet. Any suggestions?
Marina has finished her "Sweet Nostalgia" quilt top, and it looks fabulous. Why don't you pay her a visit and see for yourself. Has anyone else got any photos to share?

Edit: February 7, 2011 - Just a quick note to thank you all for your suggestions for the name of the blue bunny quilt. I've decided to name it "Some Bunny Loves You". How do you like it?

I'm a caregiver for my Mom too, so I know what you mean about not getting out much. My circle of friends are on the web.
Your quilts are wonderful! You are very gifted.

You ballerina bunnies are gorgeous. Your other bunny quilt is beautiful too. Perhaps a name may be 'blue bunny bliss'.
My mum looked after my grand parents in their final years and it was very restricting. You have to do what you can.

I'm a chauffeur for my mum, so I know what you mean. Endless rounds of doctor visits, bank runs, grocery shopping....not interesting at ALL. Even though we ARE getting out, lol. Dorothy, I LOVE your new quilts - they are so beautiful!!! Love the title on the first one. I'm no good with titles, but the second one Bunny Love came to mind. I'm sure someone will come up with something outstanding! Let me know when that one is available, I know somebunny that would truly love it....

Hi Dorothy!
It is nice seeing that you've given an update here! I was missing you! 8-)

Your "Loves Music, Loves To Dance" is simply adorable!! Love it! 8-)

Your other bunny quilt is wonderful too!!! My suggestion for a name for this one would perhaps be "Bunny Tails" or "Bunny Tales"...

Happy stitchings, and take care of the care giver! 8-)

These two quilts are lovely..... the rabbits are so sweet. Since it is the year of the rabbit.... why not call it just that?

Thanks for sharing!

Glad you're finding time to check in to blogland occasionally. Hope you're finding a bit of time for yourself sometimes, being a caretaker can be really stressful. Best wishes to you and your mom.

Dorothy said...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. Your feedback is what helps to motivate me when I get blue.

Hippety Hop is the first thing that came to mind when I saw your quilt.
They are both gorgeous.
My mom is in a nursing home and they look after her very well. We visit a couple of times a week and she seems quite happy there.

Love the bunnies!!! First thing that popped into my mind was "Hop to It" and then "Bunny Trail"
I love reading your blog. It is so inspiring to me as a mid-level quilter.

The"sweet nostalgia" quilt is lovely i like it a lot.

Your new designs are delightful Dorothy.
I especially like the one with no name. The colours are so soft - just lovely.

"As Soft as a Bunny" or "Soft as a Bunny", is what I thought of. I love both of the quilts. My little granddaughters love rabbits. One has a build-a-bear Bunny with a ballerina dress! I MUST make the music/dance quilt!!

Bonniedoo said...

How about 'Bunny Love' ?

Carrie P. said...

Oh, they are both so sweet. I especially like blue one. I really like Marina's suggestion for the name of the quilt. I did see her quilt. She did a fabulous job on it too. I am sorry to say mine is still sitting in the UFO pile but I am going to take a road trip to California this spring and I am probably going to bring it to work on as we travel.

Dorothy said...

Thanks for visiting Betty and Bonnie, and for your suggestions for the quilt name. I want to incorporate the butterflies in the title and am thinking "Bunnies and Butterflies Bliss", expanding on Marina's suggestion.

Dorothy,

I love love love that second quilt! So springy.

Marguerita said...

Hi Dorothy, I LOVE the quilts, but since we have pet bunnies, that second one just jumped straight into my heart! I can't wait for the pattern release on that one - it will be the first pieced quilt I've wanted to make in a long time.

We are on "parent care duty" in Arizona this winter, which is so much better than parent care duty in Alaska! Wishing you the best,
Marguerita
