This little piggy
A PIG in my book is a "Project in a Grocery Sack." And I own a few... (head bowed in shame) This one is my most recent.... I bought the magazine when I was feeling down... I then really mulled over the cover quilt. Do I want one very similar to the one shown? (I did not think so at the time.) How would I do mine? Oh, I am so tired of doing the same thing.... That one on Finn's blog looks cool... I have a gift certificate, so I can either buy a couple big pieces of batiks for a different quilt that I plan to make to use up my batik scraps, or I can buy to make this quilt... I walked out with fabrics so that I could make mine look very similar to the published quilt. (I bought a few to fill in the gaps at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show & suprisingly a few cam out of my stash!) The floral at the top will be the back & the other piece up there - a plaid - will be the binding. When will I start to cut &/or piece it? Your guess is as good as mine! (The left over pinks and browns together with my shirtings will make another quilt made up entirely of small-ish 1/2 square triangles. Some may also go with my other repros. to become another repro. quilt - maybe baskets...)
Ah back to the reality of "Amy you already have a pile of UFO's without making more!"
