Happy Birthday Pattern – Wurzburg’s Little Bunnies Crib Quilt


Today would have been my Dad's 100th birthday so I thought I'd share a pattern for one of the Wurzburg kit quilts. This one is kind of special to me. It's for the first quilt I ever made. I was pretty little when I told my Dad I wanted to make a quilt. He didn't say "go ask your mother", but presented me with some adorable bunny quilt blocks, a handful of shiny embroidery floss and embroidery chart.

You can use crayons (I recommend Prang) or fabric paints for the colored areas. You could also applique those sections. The embroidery is easy and don't be afraid to get more creative with setting your blocks together than I did as a little girl. In the 1930s they filled the plain squares with beautiful quilting and my mismatched muslin squares and yarn ties hardly do the pattern justice!

The pattern will be free until June 7 and then it's back in the Online Store. I hope you like Little Bunnies and pause a minute to thank Daddy, our birthday boy today, for saving all the great antique patterns for us to enjoy today.

    Agree, wonderful memory of your father. Did you color your blocks with the Prang crayons?

    What a wonderful father! And a memory to treasure always. The quilt will surely be an heirrloom. Thanks for the pattern; I’ve never used the crayons before but I’m tempted to look for the Prang crayons now.

    I love this quilt and the story and memory of your dad. I would love to get the pattern but I am not sure if I am not understanding how to get it. I have just had open heart surgery and am recouping. I just had surgery 1 week ago today and I cant figure out where the pattern is to save it. Can you please help me? Thank You Diane

    I’m SO glad you posted the Bunny quilt pattern. I will make it for my new grandbaby coming in December.
    I like your site but I have a terrible time reading it. Every thing is so miniscule and I have to ask my hubby to help me.
    Again I thank you and may G’d bless you. Evita

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Have you ever put these little bunnies in a book?

    Happy Birthday to your dad, that he shall never be forgotten. Carol

    Well as it happens so many times I went back and took another look and found where you download the pattern. So please forget the previous posting.

    Thanks for the patterns. I love doing crayon quilts, but like Crayolas better than any other crayon. But I will try Prang again, just because you said so.

    I can’t wait to get this started! froggyintexas
