Story Submitted by: SandiMako

A few years ago, I found an abandoned adult rabbit in the park. My son named him Stew and my two cats quickly adopted him. Now he roams the back porch with the cats and and he learned to use the litter box. He also does a little dance for his meals. My husband, Mike, started a garden for us with lots of collard greens, kale and parsley for Stew. When I saw this quilt on the cover of the April 2007 Quilter's World, I knew I had to make it using some of the garden material in my stash. I call it "Stew Bunny in the Garden." It was temporarily hanging in our local library's display window.

I love the picture and the quilt is awesome. The kids had a black bunny when they were growing up nice memories

Thank you! Our teen son named him, but "Stew" was also called Stewby, Stewart, Bunnyface and lots of other silly names. He was a good bunny! Sadly, he passed away years ago at age 14, but the quilt still hangs in our kitchen. His best friend, Scruffy, seen in the photo, passed away within weeks of losing his bunny buddy. Love takes many forms.

Great story. I used to have pet rabbits. The quilt is adorable. BUT, did you have to name him "stew"?
