Higgledy Piggledy - all bound up!

Done, done, and done!


I kept the quilting simple - wavy organic lines.  (I love 'organic' lines.  I meant to wobble.  Really.)


And as higgledy piggledy colorful as this quilt is, the binding just had to be colorful, too.


I'll try to get a better final picture after the holidays.  For now, it's done done done!

My Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016 main event is complete!  But since I still have a couple dozen piglets left over, I think I might just carry on making them for RSC2017, too.
One can never have too many piglets.

Linking with SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday.  Come see what everyone else is doing to finish up RSC2016, too!

I'm also adding a link to the first RSC finished rainbow quilt party.   Come see what rainbows grow up to be!

Congratulations! Wow that was really quick.Kudos to you. I have FMQ only one block on my RSC2015. Ha! No borders on RSC2016 yet. But whatever. It'll get done when it'll get done. Enjoy the warmth of it, as it is so cold this weekend. ;^)

Congratulations on the fabulous finish! If the lines were all straight, they would be boring and not organic at all.

I love your pigglies!! Congratulations on a super fun finish. I think these are so stinkin' cute and may just have to make a piggy quilt with RSC17.

Your backing and binding for the piggies are just perfect! I was so happy when I discovered that quilting in wavy, organic lines was a thing! Now my quilting looks great - and so does yours!

Peggyinno said...

Wow, wow and WOW!!! Great job on this quilt! Perfect border!!

Organic is so much easier that trying to do perfect straight lines. Congrats on your finish.

What a fun quilt, and I love your setting. The organic wavy lines are great too, a perfect way to bring it all together. Wonder what will happen to the rest of the piggies?

The wavy lines are perfect for the helterskelter piglets. They just never stop running.

Super fabulous finish. That was done right all the way round!

Magpie Sue said...

Oh hurray! It looks like such a happy quilt; I'm glad at least some of your piggies have found a home. Or maybe they haven't? They're running higgledy-piggledy all over the hills!

Bente Antonsen said...

Oh, what a great piglet quilt!!. I hope we get to see the whole quilt.

Kate said...

Congrats on finishing up your pretty piglets. It's such a fun quilt!

Nancy said...

This is one adorable quilt! I wasn't sure about the pigs when you first started them, and then when you had them laying out side by side I still wasn't sure, but cutting the squares so the pigs are at an angle going up and down the hill -- perfect!

Delighted Hands said...

I recognize lots of names in your comments from the RSC2016~!
I love your piggy quilt and my 4yo grandson looking over my shoulder yelled-hey, those are piggies! Nice work accomplished! (I quilt organic, too! lol)

works4me said...

Flying pigs are just so much fun. Congratulations on a great finish.

Lori said...

It's a piglet parade! Or maybe a piglet scramble? Watching the piglets has been so much fun. Congratulations!

Pamela Arbour said...

I really like your layout and the fabrics you chose. Such a darling and inviting quilt.

scraphappy said...

Beautiful finish. Looks like those piggies are having a blast.

Linda Smith said...

So darling. I never noticed that the piglets were running uphill and downhill. That gives the perfect movement to this fun, fun quilt.
