Pigs Flying All Over The Place

I had no idea what PIGS were until Joan at Moosestash Quilting told me. 
It was a brilliant blog hop idea to get some of our "projects in grocery sacks" finished.


She really pushed my button on this one!
I found way too many PIGS in my fabric closet. Yikes!
Thanks to Joan, I finished quite a few.

I found a great rock wall at a park near me...perfect for quilt photos.

PIGS #1

This one was started by my grandson but he never finished it.
His life is pretty busy right now, so I finished it for him.
 

It was a great way to use up a charm pack.


PIGS #2

The Ghastlie fabric is one of my favorites, but for some reason I never finished this one from 2011.
All it needed was to be quilted and binding added.


PIGS #3

My friend, Susan, made me this Ghastlie quilt top. I added a border, quilted it with minky 
on the back, and added binding. This one is mine...I love how soft and cozy it is!
It was a little windy for pics, but I managed with the help of my crew.




PIGS #4

Last summer, Joan came to visit (it was a whirlwind of fun!) and showed Susan and I
how to do pantos on my longarm. This was a practice piece and I didn't want to just
throw it away, so it now has binding and will be a donation quilt.

I've had the fabric FOREVER but never used it. Love those girls!



PIGS #5

This one was a paper pieced quilt that was sewn in 2012. It had the top, bottom, and binding 
just waiting in a bag for me to finish it. I scribbled some quilting on it and called it done!


PIGS #6

This quilt was made using the tube method of strips that get cut at different areas. 
It only needed a couple more strips at the bottom to be finished.
Quilted and binding added...done!


I think I love Joan for pushing me to do this...or maybe not. LOL 
She can be quite wicked (but fun) sometimes!


I've been so impressed with all the PIGS that have been finished.
Check them out all the PIGS by visiting these blogs...lots of fun!

  4. I am super impressed at all the PIGS you finished! They all look great! Someone will love the cupie doll quilt (at least that's what they look like to me). That rock wall is a great place to take pics too.

  5. SIX UFOs! How perfectly wonderful. Perhaps, it's just as well that you haven't made a list of unfinished projects, Carol. I did a couple of years ago and I keep working on them and crossing them off. You have lots of fun quilts. I especially think the grandson's quilt. It shows how much you love him that you also finished it.
