I spent yesterday at my mom's for a quilting day. I decided to start a new project--I know shocking! My sister gave me quilt kit to make Lori Holt's Sunflower Pig Quilt awhile back and I finally decided it was time to work on it.
The quilt calls for 9 pigs, but I made an extra one to use for my label.
The kit has some beautiful fabrics, but of course I changed some around.
Now, I am working on the sunflower and crop blocks to go between the pigs.
I think the pigs are adorable and I really like the mud strips at the bottom of the blocks. This will be a fantastic quilt!
Since it is the beginning of September, I am going to participate in the One Monthly Goal (OMG) setting with Heidi over at
My September goal is to finish my Bloom Quilt. I bought a backing last week and need to pin it, quilt it, and get her done!
Today is Sunday which means it is time to slow down with some hand stitching. I will be putting the final touches on this fall embroidery. Kathy asked where our stitching went with us this summer and this project went with me all the way back to New York to take my daughter to college. I always like to tie a specific project to a travel memory! Check out everyone's projects here:
The NFL 2016 Football Season begins on Thursday night with a Super Bowl rematch between the Broncos and the Panthers. I can't wait to watch the pigskin get thrown around!
