Easter Parade: Bunny Quilt Block Tutorial

Do any of you remember this fun Bunny Quartet table runner from last year? It was my very first Moda Bake Shop tutorial and I’m so happy to have it out on my table again!

I’ve been wanting to make another bunny table runner, but instead of making the same exact one, I decided to change things up a bit this year. I’ve updated the bunny quilt block tutorial below (you can still find the original step-by-step photo tutorial at the Moda Bake Shop blogย HERE), but I felt that the cute bunnies needed a little something extra, so I’ve added in a carrot quilt block to make a fun Easter Parade Table Runner!

You’ll have to wait until next week for the carrot quilt block tutorial, but in the meantime, you can make yourself a whole colony of rabbits using the instructions below! ๐Ÿ˜‰

UPDATE: The free quilt block instructions are below, but if you’d like a printable PDF copy of the directions with fabric requirements and cutting instructions for mini quilt and throw quilt options, an Easter Parade PDF pattern is available in my Etsy shop HERE.

Assembly Instructions

Step 1: Gather (1) A piece, (2) B pieces, and (10) C pieces. Draw a line from corner-to-corner on the wrong side of the C pieces. Lay out the pieces with the C squares placed on top of the A and B pieces, right sides together, and oriented as shown below. Sew directly on the drawn lines.

Step 2: Trim off the excess corners 1/4″ away from the lines just sewn and press the seams open.

Step 3: Gather the D piece and place it between the two bunny ears.

Step 4: Sew the D piece in between the ears. Press the seams open.

Step 5: Sew the ears to the bunny head and press the seam open. Bunny head should now measure 5″ x 9.5″.

  1. This is so cute! Love the addition of the carrot. I made a bunny last night using the Fancy Forest pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. Not really sewing for Easter, per se’, but I just love the bunny block! The construction is similar to this, but has more detail – eyes, nose, mouth. Fun stuff! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I saw this and had a sweet little bunny block finished in les than 10 minutes thanks to a charm pack and some background fabric. Thank you! I have to hunt out some orange fabric from my stash for the carrot next.
