60″ wide by 76″ high
Finished April 2017
All our signature blocks, close-up. And who are these people? My beemates from the Gridsters Bee. You can find our work on Instagram: they made over half of the piggies and I made the rest. The tutorial is *here.*
You’ve seen a lot of this quilt, but you haven’t yet seen it down on MY farm: here’s the beauty shot in our garden.
The lower blue fabric dates from the 1970s, a scrap from the very first quilt I ever made. I try to work it into most of my quilts, one way or another.
The backing is an old Marimekko fabric, purchased from when the Crate and Barrel Outlet store used to be nearer to me. The binding is a Kaffe Fasset fabric. Many many thanks to all who cheered me on while making this, and to my lovely bee-mates!

Very cute! I keep forgetting that bindings can be prints! Nice effect.
So much fun and so well done!
What a fun quilt Elizabeth! There are so many lovely elements to it- the jaunty piggies prancing across the quilt, the swirly quilting, the grass-like backing and the perfect farmyard border! I love everything about it! And to think you have fabric from quilt #1! Wonderful!
This is just such a happy quilt – I love it! All your fabric choices accent so well the piggies and I’m so proud of your “post-surgery” quilting!!!
Ok, I can’t resist….Pigs in a blanket!!!!
This is one of my all time favorite quilts, Elizabeth!!!
So very cute!
You got this assembled and finished so quickly! Lovely!
I never thought I’d love a pig themed quilt but this quilt just makes me smile. Love the fabric choices for the backing and binding.
That is positively adorable! I love it and I love it on your “farm”. The signature blocks on the back look great. You really got this one finished quickly considering your disability. Very impressive!!!
Piggies is so cute–makes me smile every time I see it!
I haven’t been a fan of pig quilt in the past, but I am now. Your Piggies quilt is adorable. Epic effort on your part. I’m glad to see you are springing back.
Loving the Piggies…
So darn cute! It came out great, Elizabeth. Thanks for sharing! BTW, the blog is back up. http://quilterinmotion.net
I adore this quilt. You can’t help but smile when you see it.
I really enjoyed seeing the completed quilt and reading about it. Such nice photos.
It turned out so good, Elizabeth! The curving quilting sort of mimics curlycue pig tails, doesn’t it? And that backing fabric… it’s so pretty! I think I vaguely remember seeing it before. Happy that you had that in your stash because it suits. Mostly I’m glad for you to have a finish like this, as I know you’ve been waiting patiently (impatiently) to get back to the more physical aspects of quiltmaking. You’ve persevered well though all of it.
So stinking cute!!!
This is a wonderful quilt! I love it 🙂
What a beautiful, joyful quilt – I don’t think anyone could look at it without smiling!
Yay for pigs on the farm! This is such a fun quilt, Elizabeth. I love it.
I don’t know how anyone could look at this quilt and not smile! I love that!!
This is SO cute!
