Our weekly spotlight this week shined on Rabbit-themed quilts (honoring the British tradition/superstition of saying Rabbit Rabbit! on the first day of the month for good luck). Using the Quilt Index Advanced Search page, I typed in rabbit in the Pattern Name field. Here are six of my favorite matches for this search term.
