It's A Quilt Contest!

Michele over at The Quilting Gallery is having another weekly quilt contest.  This time it is Scrappy Quilts!  I have entered my Pigs On the Farm quilt and hope you all will go over and take a peek at it! IF you like it better than all the others, then I would appreciate your votes!  There is some mighty hefty competition over there!!

Thanks in advance!!

PIGS ON THE FARM!

My quilting buddies know my hubby and I collect pig pottery so they are always sending me pig themed fabrics. I made this quilt using all of those fabrics for the circles. The green background fabric was given to me by one of the ladies when we met in NH at a quilting retreat. Friends are such fun.

That's lovely. I was wondering how it is made. Some time ago, I saw a similar quilt where the circles had been sewn striaght onto the background squares and had "raw" edges.

Thank you Kath. I have lightweight fusible behind the circles and I machine blanket stitched the edges.
