This little pig was sent to Florida with my sister back in June to give to my great-niece, Bella. FYI, this little pig had been living in my fabric closet for a few years and when I reorganized, I found her buried in a bag of leftover batting. Now you know that my stash closet was a true pig sty. LOL!
The quilt top was made over a year ago earmarked for Bella's 2nd birthday. Well, she just turned 3!!!
Olivia's dress(that's the piggy's name) was made from the scraps of the quilt top as a peace offering until this quilt which I promised her in her 3rd birthday card was delivered!
I put the top on my frame just after my sister's visit and it has been waiting patiently,(and doubling as a kitty hammock) for a couple of weeks. Well, I finally set aside an afternoon and got 'er done.
Don't know why I waited soo long.
I had hoped to put another quilt on the frame to be done before my vacation but that didn't happen. So, this is my quilty contribution to my blog til I get back from California. We are going to visit Alex and Yosemite National Park as well as see a SF Giants baseball game. We figure since the BoSox are #1 in the East, we should check out the #1 competition in the West.
I'll be back soon with vacation pics. Til then, Quilt til you Wilt!!!
