  • "Olivia" the pig quilt is finished - a Quilt for Kids

    Since I cannot participate in the sew days or retreats our guild has (caregiver for DH), I picked up a kit to piece & quilt at home. I've been working on this off & on for the past month or so. Sometimes I had only 30-40 min. at a time to work on it. I didn't even like it when I first started working on it, but it sort of grew on me as time went on. It's finished at last. I just have to wash it before I take it back to the guild. It has to be ready for gifting.

    I used Angela Walters' hook swirl & did an all-over, edge-to-edge FMQ design. I added the black 1" border strips from my stash to widen it & dress it up a bit. I didn't really care for the B/W cow fabric they provided for the binding, but I used it anyway. I'm not sure how well it will hold up, since it was a poorer quality fabric than the rest. The backing was one large piece of stripes that all went the same direction. I cut it in half & pieced it down the middle so the 2 sections went in opposite directions. Over all, I'm pretty satisfied with the way it turned out. There are more pics in my new album. Thanks for looking. Click image for larger version
