    Thats what we're trying to figure out. heres the delima

    1. I have all the fabric and instructions in a bag for a quilt (PIG)
    2. A WIP is a work in progress but I haven actualy done any work on the quilt
    3. I did a block on the BOM in April so desided to make the quilt that design so now I have one block that will be used in the quilt.

    so do I have a PIG WIP or a WIPped PIG

    PIGS are Projects In Grocery Sacks!!!

    If they were in a bag they wouldn't be PIGS, they would be PIGB. I just felt a strong need to clear this up.

    Ceanna, your PIG is now a WIP. Sorry, but PIGS are projects not started. So, all I can say is, Ceanna, you have WIPped your PIG.

    A PIG by any other name is still a PIG! Last night I found a few more I had forgotten about. Some I try to put the pattern or magazine in the sack, box, bag, with the fabric. There is now a real good possibility that my sister will be receiving a basket quilt this year. I need someone to catalog this place! I fear I am becoming a collector of PIGS. Any one want bacon?

    If one of the PIGS requirements is that they are unstarted, and starting them, but keeping them in the SACK means they are whipped, then all of my pigs (2) are WIPped.

    Well, one I guess. Perhaps it's a PIG in a case?? Since the whole sack is now inside a pillow case waiting for random sewing.

    But the pillowcase is quilted, so perhaps my PIG really is WIPped in a Blanket!!!!

    Wow...do I need a life or what??
