A Note To My Followers!

My blog has moved to a new blogging home... Stitch and Quilt !

I thought I could point a new domain to the old platform of Pig Tales and Quilts but 2 months in to it, blogger had other ideas.  I was locked out of my blog and with much patience, I waited while I got help to have things resolved.  

I built a brand new blog for Stitch and Quilt.  
It still runs on the www.stitchandquilt.com domain.

Please come over to Stitch and Quilt and  continue to follow my blog posts!

I installed the Google Friend Connect Followers Gadget on the new blog so I hope most of my followers will sign up that way on the new platform and continue to follow me that way when you come over to see my new home.

PigTalesandQuilts will remain live but I will not be posting on this blog.  
I will probably pull some of my old post over to the new blog from time to time.
It will be  like a throwback Thursday kind of thing. :)

Bedroom Ensemble For My Daughter

I have been sewing over the Christmas holiday for my daughter and her hubby. This ensemble is for the master suite in their new home. They are getting a king size bed so this was made for it.... we have it showing on their queen for the photos.

I quilted the Kona Coal Gray bedspread with a chevron design on my Gammill longarm and added a gray corduroy backing.  The throw at the foot of the bed is made of lightweight custom fabric for drapes and/or upholstery.  I quilted straight lines across it on the longarm. It is backed with a solid color of the same type fabric to pull out the gold-like color.

We decided to make 3 queen size pillow shams instead of 2  king size shams.  It really does look much better this way.  We wanted to pull the fabrics in the curtains down to the bed so we opted to make the 2 larger throw pillows from those Kona fabrics.... Kona Bone and Kona Curry.  The drapes are fully lined using the Kona Bone fabric.
