HBH105 - Jungle Walk for a Cause
Transport yourself to the Jungle and walk along with these wonderful animals all “Walking for a Cause”. Although originally designed as a comfort quilt for cancer patients and survivors; we realized that there are walks for a variety of worthy causes, and most people are touched in one way or another by these horrible diseases.

HBH107 - Energized Bunnies
These bunnies are working off some of their excess energy by participating in their favorite sports activities. No sitting in front of the TV or computer for them! There are too many new things to do and try.
If you prefer a smaller quilt, perhaps geared to just girls or boys, you could achieve this effect by choosing seven blocks and insert your favorite bunnies. By changing clothing colours you can create your desired gender. Alternatively you may want to take one of the bunny designs and create a single wall hanging, (tote bag or cushion) as depicted on the pattern cover. Wall hanging 52½” x 68½” Twin quilt 65” x 81”.

Harebrained Happenings  HBH112 - Dancing With The Stars
For some time we had toyed with the idea of creating a wallhanging depicting a diverse group of children dancing. This vision evolved over time of these children dancing in a sky full of stars. Since they would need wings to fly, they became angels. Because of the pattern theme, the name of the pattern was a no- brainer, given the popularity of the Hit TV show “Dancing with the Stars”. It is a machine appliqué project depicting five diverse angels among a sky of stars. We also thought that it would make an adorable Christmas project, so the single angel wallhanging was made using Christmas fabric with seasonal accessories.
Finished size 47” x 26½”, Angel 12½”x 14½”

Harebrained Happenings  HBH115 - Ribbons of Hope
Inspired by the multitude of people courageously battling against the many forms of cancer, we decided to create this wallhanging /tote bag to honor them. Each project depicts a whimsical creature sporting the symbolic ribbon design. We chose to represent the pink ribbon for breast cancer for our samples as it is a cancer that is rampant and has affected each of our lives. The butterfly is actually called “Butterfly of Hope”. Omit the corner ribbons and just make a tote bag or wallhanging. However, these patterns can be adapted and personalized to represent an assortment of causes, simply by changing the color of the ribbons, and possibly even the color of the creatures themselves. What a wonderful gift of hope for those struggling with the disease, for supporters of the cause or a gift of celebration for survivors.
