Whirligigs and Pinwheels Quilt

I have had some fabric with bunnies on it for over a year now and couldn't figure out what I was going to do with it.  I tried to design a quilt but never liked what I came up with.  I had used some of the fabric in an Easter wall hanging and the rest tugged at me to do something with it.

One day while I was surfing the internet I came across this small child's quilt and thought that I could put my bunny fabric to good use making a quilt like it. 

 In the original pattern the author cut out squares of fabric for the centers of her blocks and used red and gold fabric for the rest of the blocks.  I fussy cut my bunnies into 6 inch squares.  I used pale blue instead of red to coordinate with the blue sky in the bunny squares.  The only fabric I purchased for this was the backing which belongs to the same fabric line as the bunnies.  It is carrots and vegetables with the same flower pots that are in the squares.

I don't know what I will do with this quilt yet.  It may go to Neebing Needlers as a donation quilt or to the guild for the pediatric unit at the hospital.
