The Bunny Run quilt pattern is a baby quilt designed by Tanja Radman, a Melbourne-based designer. Tanja is one of our favourites here at Calico and Ivy, and we just love her designs!
The Bunny Run quilt is a hand-stitched quilt that has a range of designs appliquéd onto the top. It has hexagons sewn into thistle flowers and a stunning star centre. It also has a flurry of circles, pinwheels and gorgeous bunnies to appliqué and, to top it all off, a beautiful scalloped border that frames the quilt.

We have included pics of the most beautiful version of this quilt made by the talented Deborah Mackay, who teaches at Calico and Ivy. Deborah recently ran this class at the store, and it was a sellout! Her version is whimsical and so inspirational. Deborah used Liberty Tana Lawn for her templates, and you can see how stunning this is.
