Just finished stitching the binding down on a quilt for my friend’s grand-daughter who loves pigs. As it happened, I had a collection of piggy prints collected over the years (and just sitting in my sewing room) so I was happy to use them up, knowing the pigs would be going to a good home. Using a simple block, I paired piggy prints with others from my stash and this is the result – a happy combination of pink, blue and various shades of purple.
Big piggy quilt
This large King Single and much too big for me to quilt at home, so was commercially quilted by Paula of Rabbits Patch Quilting in an all over swirly design.
Happy little piggy faces
I had a couple of extra piggy blocks left over plus small strips of this and that which I had used in the big quilt. I’m so pleased that I managed to get nine blocks made, just right for a cute little baby quilt. After using up my piggy prints I made one with pretty butterflies and the lucky last block used up a small piece of a candy print I had. Sashed with a pale lilac print, and I used a purple print for the border - it all seems to go together nicely.
.Little piggy quilt
This little quilt was backed with cozy pink flannel, quilted by me with wavy lines, and I used up lots of small pieces to make a scrappy binding. Not sure if I’ll keep this one in case I need a baby girl quilt, or maybe donate it to a good cause. Either way, I'm enjoying those happy piggy faces for a while.
