    1st block of a wedding quilt gift

    Danni one of my group at the local hall has decided she wants to make a quilt for one of best friend's as a wedding gift, the happy couple are mad on piggies so I chose, with her experience in mind, the Antique Tile block, from Quilters Cache, with a piggy in the middle LOL

    BTW This is the pupil that before last September had never ever touched a sewing machine, well look at those points!

    Each block will have oranges on a pure White n White background, with a different piggy in the middle. I will be doing the quilting for her as it will be about 4' x 5' and she doesn't feel experienced enough yet, but she will before much longer at the rate she is going.

    Wow! She has a good teacher! Well matched seams.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Adorable block!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    That batik is beautiful, and so is the block. Do you know the name of the fabric in the batik? Love those colors.

    I love pigs too - must get some of that fabric. Great block - be sure to post when the quilt is done.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
